^ I agree with John. Know ahead of time what “story” you’re trying to tell. That way, you’ll know when you “got the shot”, or if you need to shoot more. Shooting for a week or more is really overkill. If you plan ahead, you can probably get what you need in a day or two. And always remember to shoot tons of B-roll to use as filler and transitions.
