Hello friends !
it takes some time to understand the rules of the new places and out of comfort zone situation. same thing happened to me when i tried myself in the “behind the scenes” project for the full-lenght movie. the movie was filmed in the center of my country at the abandoned territory of the old chemical plant. i freed a few workdays for this project and spent time with the staff, felt like filmmaker (or something like this) and took a few hundreds images with the goal to create a real story from the set.
there is a significant difference in documenting a usual lifetime events and documenting the filming. And there are rules.. i hate this fact (and this word) but they do exist !
