#5 - On-set whip, a.k.a. The Bodacious First A.D.

Woohoo for #5 on the Bucket list! Be a first Assistant Director for a film shoot.

The First Assistant Director is essentially the Director's right-hand man (or woman)...getting cast/crew together, keeping things organized with the extras 'n such, keeping everyone updated for each night of shooting, and being the on-set whip, making sure the shot-list gets accomplished.

I'd have to say, it's tons of fun and I've come to like it a lot. This one in particular was an all-night shoot for a Fellow Filmess and it was quite the ride. Crazy times, but I wouldn't trade it for the world :)

This was a vid-blog about our night out, taken by Jeremy Rowland, another filmie. :)
