I saw an article on the VM web site about a week ago, and now I can't find it. I'm hoping another site user will recogniza it and point me to it.
The article was on directing, but I'm particularly interested in a sidebar to the article. The sidebar had suggestions for 'directorspeak', such as "I liked that take, now let's do another one with higher energy", instead of "I need more energy from you." It was really basic on-set diplomacy, but I've got somebody who could benefit from the article.
Directing can be a very rewarding task during video production. Directing animals even more so. Being a director of dogs is something that two Videomaker readers have done for quite some time, and at their core are dog trainers, with videos coming secondary to the dog training.
