Starting from childhood experiences and encompassing everything all the way to planning shots, treating crew, blocking, and prepping, as well as balancing free time and work. How to protect the actors, and being mindful of the vulnerability of the touching moments happening in front of the camera? How to work with different directors and styles? And much more.
