Game Time

One of the special aspects of motion picture production is the element of Game Time. That same mix of anticipation we feel when the players burst out of the tunnel – practice is over; it's on. The camera rolls and we focus. More important, we listen, observe, and take everything in. There's a fun factor too, between takes, during breaks or when we stop to eat lunch it's actually better to keep our minds clear, make small talk, banter, relax. It's a nice feeling too because if we've planned the day well we know that valubale things are being accomplished. But like a big game there are always the critical, unexpected moments; the weather changes, a location is not available, the proverbial ball is dropped, and our split-second reaction is all that matters. In these moments, when all our careful planning goes out the window and we operate on instinct, wonderful things can happen.
