No links to spoken word YouTube, Soundcloud, Etc. Bambi Vs. Billy Wilder said it: you know you're done directing when your legs go. So I reflect at the end of a rather challenging shoot. The shoot included about five weeks of nights, and I have only myself to blame, as I wrote the damn thing.
Directing a film, especially during night shooting, has to do, in the main, with the management of fatigue. The body doesn't want to get up, having had so little sleep; the body doesn't want to shut down and go to sleep at ten o'clock in the morning. So one spends a portion of each day looking forward to the advent of one's little friends: caffeine, alcohol, the occasional sleeping pill.
The sleeping pill is occasional rather than regular, as one does not wish to leave the shoot addicted. So one recalls Nietzsche: "The thought of suicide is a great comforter. Many a man has spent a sleepless night with it. One also gets through the day or night through a sense of responsibility to, and through a terror of failing, the workers around one. The star actor may complain and often does. He is pampered, indulged, and encouraged indeed paid to cultivate his lack of impulse control. When the star throws a fit, the crew, ever well-mannered, reacts as does the good parent in the supermarket when the child of another, in the next aisle over, melts down.
