  • How to Pay Your Crew « Wide Open Camera
    periodically with escalating frustration Assure them that you have not skipped town and are simply waiting on payment They will get paid when you get paid Be polite but firm Waiting on payment is just part of the game and it s not your fault that they are late on their rent If you re like me you are in the early stages of your business Maybe it s not quite worth your while to go LLC or another type of business that is recognized as such by the government In this case get out your favorite pen because you re about to be writing lots of personal checks Alternately Paypal is your best friend although this will charge your recipient a fee Or you can always do cashier s checks which I don t like very much because it s essentially like sending cash in the mail If you do go the personal check route just be sure to remind your crew to cash their checks ASAP What has happened to me before is a couple of guys that I sent checks to were out of town during that time They finally got back to town and got around to depositing the checks weeks after I had written them Suddenly my checking account plummeted long after I had forgotten I ever wrote those checks Overdraft fees are a bitch Now this is really important Whichever form of payment you decide on always get invoices from your crew Imagine it s tax season and suddenly you get a big fat W9 from the government for the sum total of your budget which since you re not a business was sent to your name by the client Let s say it s for 10k Well as far as Uncle Sam is concerned you owe him 10k worth of taxes But in reality you only saw let s say 30 of that as personal income The rest went towards production expenses and paying crew If this isn t your first time around the block you know that all those production expenses can be written off and you don t pay tax on them So why should your crew be any different What you do is you line item your crew payments as general expenses Whether or not your gaffer is an honest man and declares the 600 he made is entirely between him and the IRS You ve done your job by keeping track of and reporting that expense and as long as you have his invoice it s the same as having a receipt for craft services Otherwise you ll be paying tax on your crew s behalf That s pretty much all I ve got for now Again this information is really for those producers in a similar position to my own able to pay people but not big enough where you ve got a proper accounting system set up So hopefully some of this is useful and feel free

  • Field of Gold: Grow as you Go « Wide Open Camera
    go towards A The majority of our expenses were equipment and travel cost We knew that the project was going to take well over year to film and with very few scheduled shoot dates So during pre production we knew we wanted to invest in as much of our own equipment as possible We ended up going with the 7D and 60D This set up allowed us to be extremely mobile and maintain a low profile when we were shooting in the Caribbean especially Cuba Q Why tobacco farmers What led you to this subject A The premise of the film was conceived in the summer of 2009 I had planed to pitch the film for my school s BFA program but decided to hold off and wait until after I graduated I approached Hugh with the idea at the end of the school year and showed him some footage that I d shot during the previous summer with a professors Z7U Hugh was immediately on board At one point the premium tobacco industry was a critical part of the infrastructure for many towns and communities within the Connecticut River Valley Unfortunately due to large scale land development a constantly rising overhead and an ever present tax burden the Connecticut River Valley premium tobacco industry is quickly disappearing from our landscape It s really important to stress that this film is not pro tobacco A Field of Gold profiles a sub culture and way of life that many people are unaware of in the United States From the farmers and migrant help who work the fields of Connecticut and the Caribbean to the casual cigar smoker and connoisseurs on Madison Avenue in New York City A Field of Gold is about the culture of premium cigars and the people who work in the industry The goal of this film is to tell the complete story of not just the nuts and bolts of an industry but also the passion and culture that s goes hand in hand with the creation and enjoyment of fine tobacco products The main character of A Field of Gold is an independent farmer named Bob Hinckley along with his wife Melisia and their two sons Bob Jr and Corey They re a cohesive group that works hard to meet the challenges and demands that a growing season in New England poses An important aspect of A Field of Gold is bringing awareness to a disappearing industry In the 1960s there were over 50 000 acres of tobacco raised in the Connecticut River Valley now its under 3 000 and is less and less every year Rampant over development and ever increasing Financial burdens i e taxes labor cost high overhead on this industry are causing it to fade into extinction Q What were a few of the more important things you learned A Being a small scale production we had to fill a lot of roles ourselves My background has been more as camera operator

  • GET PIMPED – Lesson no. 1: WORKING WITH ACTORS « Wide Open Camera
    low budget pilot I was directing for a young production company We were looking to recast a character and the production company had full and complete control over who came in for castings Henry walked in and was clearly way too old for the part we were casting I told him this straight off the bat and he nearly walked away there and then Fortunately we got him to read for the part anyway and I was completely blown away with how good he was I instantly cast him for another part we were looking to replace someone for and never looked back Had we let him walk out the door we d never have known and I d never have had the chance to work with him Now he s pretty much the first person I think of when I m developing projects It s so rare to find that and you need to cherish those relationships 2 With stage work you rehearse and rehearse until the performance is second nature film requires a freshness that over rehearsing can kill Do you prefer to have rehearsed extensively or do you find it works better to keep things back for when the camera s rolling It depends on the project The problem with filming is that there isn t enough time to rehearse If you have weeks of pre production and can afford it it d be great to rehearse scenes again and again as you would a play that way you can break through the barrier of stilted dialogue and start to become spontaneous again think Mike Leigh Often I wont learn the lines completely before the day of the scene just know the jist and work on character but I happen to be able to memorise lines very quickly and that wont work for everyone I like to be free and able to improvise a bit but other actors may not be confident with that If it s a huge scene from one camera angle I ll need to know it beforehand and rehearse it a bit more personally I like to up my game once the camera is rolling and mark through stuff in rehearsal which I can understand is a little worrying for a director that I haven t worked with before 3 Film directors often get lost in what the camera s doing and forget about actors and they shouldn t What do you look for from directors in terms of feedback and notes Yeah some directors really aren t interested in acting at all and just worry about technical stuff which is fine if you have amazing actors with loads of experience but even then you will always get a better performance with the right directon Try and be positive if you like something SAY SO There s nothing worse than just doing something and wondering if it was good bad or indifferent be supportive without being obsequious Get to know what each actor
