What's up Stage32 I'm back with another interesting question. So I was an assistant director for one of those short film/ music video films. We were shooting in a restaurant/ bar at night. Some of our extras didn't show up so we just all got drinks and just started talking to people. We got about 80% of the people near the bar on board. However, during a scene one of the new extras wanted to know what we were shooting to and asked the director and he didn't respond. I told him they wanted to know but he told me on set you don't have time to answer any questions except the ones from your most important cast and crew members. I get it reduces production time which saves money but morale is important on every project. Personally I wouldn't want my extras having second thoughts on why they were here mid way through production. I told her eventually though. My question is that is it worth it to ignore your less involved cast and crew to save production time? Thoughts?
