5 Things YOU Do That Make People Hate You On Set

You finally booked the role – woohoo!  Now, don’t fuck it up.

First of all, don’t be a creeper!  No one goes to set with hopes of falling in love, especially with you.  Don’t ask anyone for his or her phone number, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat… ok, maybe Snapchat because seeing people with filters that make them look like random animals is fun.  When you are on set be focused on what you should be doing, pay attention to what the director is saying, and do the best you can to make the production better.  Being on set is not “hanging out”, it’s not like being at a bar, or a coffee shop – you are there to work and get your job done so the project can move along.  Don’t be that girl with the fake lips that tries to fuck the producer to get the next movie role, there’s a special place in Hell for people like that.

Do not complain!  When you are on set and things are not going your way, the last thing anyone wants to hear is you talking about how upset you are.  Don’t be a little baby about it, and if you don’t like it then leave.  Don’t be the vibe killer on set, when you start complaining all it does is make everyone else want to crush your vocal chords.  Obviously, if there is a real problem on set (i.e. asking you to do something not in your contract), then take a break and call your manager.  A good manager will sort out any legitimate problems you are having.

Secondly, be prepared!  It is your responsibility to figure out where the audition is being held, look over the sides, practice with your friends, shower, etc. I’m not going to hold your hand, if you want the part you will need to put forth some effort.
