Avoiding Production Pitfalls
Who sees all the stupidest mistakes Directors and Producers make but won’t own up to? Why, the Dir of Photography and Gaffer, of course! Our panel of experts has seen it all from behind the lens—good and bad. And they’re not afraid to tell you about the worst (and most common) production flubs—and how they could have been avoided!
