Lesson #3: Don’t leave your digital camera — you know, the one that takes stills — at home.

Lesson # 3: Don’t leave your digital camera — you know, the one that takes stills — at home.

We’re on lesson #3 now, and if I had to put my money on it, I’d bet that you’re wondering, at this very second, why I haven’t posted any production stills of Unorthodox. That’s exactly what you were thinking, wasn’t it? In fact, I’ll bet that this lack of photographs has been bothering you non-stop for the last week, making it hard to focus on your work, because all you can think is: why won’t Wexler just spice up this blog already?

So, let me take this opportunity to relieve you from your mental torture, and reveal an embarrassing little secret: we don’t have any production stills.

There. I said it.

Do you feel better now?

I do.

Let me qualify the above statement: we have a few production stills, but they’re from the few days that Nadja and I took off between production. Here’s a photo of Nadja in Haifa.

This is my production still.

With all the craziness of making sure a single shoot runs smoothly — or as close as possible to “smoothly” – – the “Get Production Skills” thought doesn’t come close to entering conscious awareness.

There isn’t much else to elaborate on: make sure to take stills or you’ll end up like me, posting an unrelated photograph and trying to justify it in a blog post.

    How did you manage to read my mind like that?! Shocking.
