Crew Dreams

If you allow the crew to share their input, or also express themselves creatively, you will be surprised at the awesome results you'll get.

Give the PA a GoPro and tell them to let their imaginations run wild... when they have a minute to spare, naturally.

Discuss with your DP the limits of your style, then let them do "their thing."

(Cinematographers are often closet artists, so they'll savor the opportunity).

Simply on an entrepreneurial level, you're harvesting the multi-dimensional creativity of many individuals.

One person imagines & creates only so much.

When you accept input from your crew, you're not only acting like a decent person, you're also exponentially adding value to your product.

Just make sure everybody signed a work-for-hire form :p
