Fictional Piece begins
Last night I started my fictional piece. I wouldn't say any of it went smoothly. My usual passive and comparably quiet stature was replaced by some directional aggression and lack of care for small problems. I needed to be forward with my actors aka close friends, whether or not they were in the mood to do what I needed them to do. I didn't want to push them around as I did, but sometimes you need to show authority, especially when you're working as a director. I showed great gratitude for their work but none of them were entirely happy. All of us definitely had some fun moments, the script had some genuine laughs, but the attitudes were poor.
