Expert from Action Movie Maker's Handbook
"This can be explained to everyone involved politely and clearly. It’s not about ego, it’s a system to ensure safety and predictability. Remember in order to be able to conduct this sort of precise information without offending anyone, you need to be respected, not feared, there is a huge difference.
In my opinion, respect is more important than position, money or credit. If you’re the guy telling fart jokes at craft service and hitting on the cute, young extra, it’s doubtful you’ll be the guy respected enough to be given the opportunity to insist on any rules or systems. SO CLASS UP YOUR GAME!"
