This is my first Manifesto. I hate the idea of a manifesto, but I was really forced to do one. You know why? Because of my team members. Have you ever had the experience that you hired a guy, lets say a PA, an assistant, Gaffer, DP, you name it and they were late, they talked too much or – better yet – they chatted up your client and exchanged business cards? Now, I’m a shy person and I don’t like confrontation. I really have a hard time to tell my team members what is bothering me. So, I needed to come up with a solution: EntreFilmmaker’s Team Member Manifesto.
This episode is really for everyone YOU’ll hire. If you have had the same experience, then this video is for everyone who wants to condition their team to have good behavior from the start of a business relationship. Just send them this video and you are set on set.
[powerpress] I made this video so that I never need to say anything again about what’s bothering me about another crew member. This video is intended for use up front, even before I’ll enter the business relationship. As you can tell, I called this Version 1, because I’m sure you’ll probably share some interesting scenarios that I haven’t come across yet, or that I forgot. Secondly, I’m sure there is always something new so I want to keep it as a Manifesto-in-progress.
What else would you include in this Manifesto? What have I missed?
