YSA Being Slaphappy – by Mahogany J. Slide

Posted by admin on September 21, 2010 in Production, Shoot |

I came across this post on ‘lessons learned‘ by a 17 year old independent filmmaker Mahogany J. Slide about her film The Saving, and thought they were great:

1. THE SAVING runs on Dunkin…ok more like Krispy Kreme but you get the idea.
2. Always slate every take (shot). Even if you have to dig through the back of a Hummer to find the dang clapperboard, DO SO! Your editor will love you forever. Unlike mine heehee
3.  Situations are only as awkward as you allow them be. After that, it just gets funny.
4.  I finally understand what the phrase “punch drunk” means (slaphappy with exhaustion)
5. To me, when it comes to filmmaking its very hard to over-communicate. If it feels like overkill then you’re probably doing your job well.
I love number 3. 🙂
