Assistant Directors

The simple fact is Assistant Directors are rarely nice since, as with grips, their position doesn’t really afford them much empathy.

Assistant Directors are the lion-tamers of a set that have the unenviable task of making sure everything happens when it is supposed to happen: script analysis, scene arrangement, day/night scheduling, crew punctuality, etc., pace of production, etc.

They are going to be terse and frequently loud, so get used to it.

Anticipate them, and make their job as easy as possible.
