This project was really helpful in improving my camera work. My partner, Jacob, and I tried to make sure each shot was smooth. As far as directing actors, we did not have too much trouble. One of the actors was slightly moody and did not appreciate the long hours (that is, a mere 30 to 60 minutes of filming/day). We had to work with the said actor and make sure we told him when we were starting and ending production. There were also a couple times we had to re-shoot because the actors would go out of the frame, but other than that directing was fine. I think our silent movie turned out great! I am happy with the results.
