SUMMARY

  • Always take time to thoroughly read the script and know the challenges you will face before giving the project the green light.
  • Read the script carefully to identify what the unique things are about this script that will be obstacles to overcome.
  • Interiors and Exteriors both offer challenges and advantages. Be familiar with each and take that into account.
