Many factors can create challenges on set for a production. It could be down to money, timing or people. How you handle these challenges on set are important, as it affects the rest of the production running smoothly. We asked Josh and Duncan how they handle challenges when they are on set.
It’s a great thing, there are always challenges on set. I think it is important to understand that first off, that there will be challenges. I feel that challenges on set can be solved before they ever happen. You have to rely on the team you put together, to mange those issues. So I think that dealing with problems on set happens way before you get to set.
It also depends on the type of people you have with you. By the time you are faced with a problem, you know you are in the best possible hands. I think the most important thing is that you can prepare for the challenges, then when it happens you can work as a team to make sure things get solved in a productive manner.
So in summary:
- As much as it is a cliché to say, stay cool, calm and collected and remove the issue from an audience.
- Have the best possible team working with you to ensure any problems will be resolved in the best possible way.
