Back Stage, January 7th – 3 Ways to Be More Successful on Set, by Robert B. Martin Jr.
Knowing how to behave on set can be tricky. But forget about just behaving, and focus on thriving on set. Here are a few ways you can be more successful, and helpful to those around you.1. Stand in for your stand-in. Instead of chilling in your trailer or hanging out at craft service, you should be on the set standing in for your stand-in.Production requests are first, but if you have nothing to do, go to set and be a fly on the wall.2. Stay out of the way of the crew, but be ready to go when called. If you are asked to leave the set, as some sets require, say yes and let the assistant director or crew in charge of talent know where to find you. Do not be hard to find; be ready to work.3. Be smart and listen on set. There is no other reward for a director than an actor who listens and helps him with his shooting day. Be smart. Act smart and always remain professional.
