One of the most stressful things about filming schedules can be having a lot to do, and not a lot of time to do it in. And so often those things that you think will take ‘just a few minutes’ can take the longest.
Having experienced this on several sets, the below really helped on our own filming day - we even finished early!
Prioritise your ‘must haves’ - if there are some really important elements, or tricky shots, get them in first; it goes a long way to keeping things relaxed if the only things left at the end of the day are not vital.
(Allot a rough timeframe to each shot and) Have someone watching the clock - its really easy to get lost in the world through the lens, and even if you need to give a few more minutes to get the perfect take, someone vocalising the timekeeping really helps to keep things on track.
