As filmgoers and critics, we often take for granted what goes into the filmmaking process. You typically hear about the "hard work" invested in a project, but those two words really don't paint a picture of the exhaustive process working on a film can be. From start to finish, it's your life. Imagine going to work in the morning, probably outside, setting up your area and focusing on it for hours. Then you get a break where you get to rehydrate, but your brain is still wired into your function on the set. Then you spend another round of concentration on your area and you get another break. By now you've been focusing on the same thing for around twelve hours. You may still be going for a few end-of-the-evening shots, and then the break-down of your area. This could be well into your eighteenth hour.
