  1. Sorry for the confusion. We shot the interview...

    Sorry for the confusion. We shot the interview now, I want to do more, but I am wondering if I should redo what was shot, in Vietnamese, along with the rest now.

    And yes I would have to tell him...
  2. Well he has a whole script written out of the...

    Well he has a whole script written out of the answers to the questions, so as long as we stick to the script then I can translate all the answers myself from it. But that was just my idea. Plus I...
  3. Sorry for the confusion. The guy who hired me is...

    Sorry for the confusion. The guy who hired me is seperate from the guy being interviewed, who is also narrating. The producer hired me and this project was his and the narrator's idea.

    And no, I...
  4. Okay thanks. I see what you mean about too many...

    Okay thanks. I see what you mean about too many cuts in my editing, now that I have looked at it with fresher eyes. My problem is that I try to include too many sections from the performances, and...
  5. Yeah I understand, but I do want to do my best...

    Yeah I understand, but I do want to do my best and want it to be good. I thought it was my job, that if there was a problem, such as the language barrier for example, to point out the problem. Plus...
  6. Oh okay thanks. Yes I know the difference, I was...

    Oh okay thanks. Yes I know the difference, I was just willing to cross over in certain duties for them :). But I don't have to give myself a director credit then if that's best.
  7. Oh okay, but I was planning the shots, as well...

    Oh okay, but I was planning the shots, as well and I thought that the director plans the shots, and shot list, etc, not the DP. I am doing the interview so far. But since I was the one telling the...
  8. Oh well I was making the decisions in the footage...

    Oh well I was making the decisions in the footage I shot, and the choices of shots I have done so far in the interviews. However, the producer is choosing the b roll, and so far I am letting him...
  9. Oh okay thanks. What is the best way to bring...

    Oh okay thanks. What is the best way to bring this up? I don't want to make it sound like I am insulting the host, or the produce since it's a passion project of there's but how do you tell them...
  10. Oh well I guess I could just have the attitude of...

    Oh well I guess I could just have the attitude of put the project together quickly, deliver it to the person and be done with it... However, I am told I need to get better at filmmaking so I...
  11. Oh well, it's just that since I am the director I...

    Oh well, it's just that since I am the director I feel that a lot of the decision making falls on me. When I posted projects to get opinions on before, that I directed, and people asked why certain...
  12. Oh okay thanks. It's just that the host is also...

    Oh okay thanks. It's just that the host is also one of the producers and I think he really wants to host it himself, rather than using someone else. I could subtitle it then, if that's better. I...
  13. Oh okay, thanks, but what can I do to teach him...

    Oh okay, thanks, but what can I do to teach him that though? I have a possible idea I can try...
  14. I can understand about maybe 70 percent of what...

    I can understand about maybe 70 percent of what he is saying but if 30 is a challenge, is that acceptable then?
  15. Oh okay, but will they have a problem if the man...

    Oh okay, but will they have a problem if the man is not as good at English?
  16. Should I have this project be in a foreign language in this case?

    I am directing a biographical documentary right now, but the person narrating it, does not speak English very well. It was his and a producer's idea and they just wanted me to direct. However,...
  17. Yes I know we covered documentaries before sorry,...

    Yes I know we covered documentaries before sorry, it's just I made an exception and took this one on, because I owed the producer a favor and wanted to him back.
  18. Oh okay, well I would have more people come to...

    Oh okay, well I would have more people come to the auditions then in order, to have enough people to call where I could just hit the phones and someone will say yes. So I can try to get more...
  19. Oh okay, well I could post a couple of other...

    Oh okay, well I could post a couple of other projects I directed from before, I just didn't think they were worth posting until I improved better.

    And yes, I know directing a documentary is a...
  20. Oh okay. I have had some paying gigs so far and...

    Oh okay. I have had some paying gigs so far and those went a lot better. Probably because the person paying had to keep the money tight, and knew they couldn't change anything unless they wanted to...
  21. Yes, I will take the advice given to me before. ...

    Yes, I will take the advice given to me before. As for not rewriting and just relying on other actors later, I could do that, but then I would have to delay shoots until those other actors are...
  22. Oh I didn't mean to bring old stories with me. ...

    Oh I didn't mean to bring old stories with me. It was just a new project with a different person now, and I just wanted other filmmakers opinions on how to handle it.

    Do you think from now on, I...
  23. Oh okay. In my experience it's been the opposite...

    Oh okay. In my experience it's been the opposite so far, and that if I put my foot down, the other person will respond along the lines "okay, well screw you then". But that's just been my...
  24. Sure. I will put into one more episode, for this...

    Sure. I will put into one more episode, for this week, but then I need to cut it off. And what makes it frustrating it his he will send me messages with the changed plans and then tell me where to...
  25. Oh okay. Well now he is telling me the plan is...

    Oh okay. Well now he is telling me the plan is now I am directing an episode once a week. And now I'm thinking how are we suppose to shoot an episode once a week? I don't even know how the...
