I like many in this industry have worn over my 22 years of experience many hats. We all make mistakes when we are starting out in any business or walk of life. However for the keen young creative, who wants to be a writer, producer, Director, Grip, Director of Photography, Production Designer, Casting Director whatever the goal is. I would love to hear a discussion from the experienced members or not, about an experience or a piece of a advice you can offer to help the next generation of film makers more aware and sensitive to our industries needs and respect to the craft and hard work that makes you a professional and someone we desire to work with. For example I was told a great piece of advise by a producer once. "If your early, your on time. If your on time, your late, and if your late your fired". Or please share a story that we can learn from.
