5. Bring On The Smiles.
Sometimes things go so sideways that I wish for a job at a coffee shop. Ultimately, filmmaking is laborious, but persevere and you will bring on the smiles! It's going to be tough, things will go wrong. You will run out of batteries, that new piece of equipment won't work despite all the practice and test runs. Plan A will turn into Plan B, C, D… You'll get tired, cold, thirsty and hungry. You get the idea. At your toughest hour try to be grateful and thankful.
