Hello, Roger!

As a DP you lead and coordinate a team, and based on your results I assume you are a great leader.

could you share something about how you do it? How do you get the crew and the director to trust you and your vision?

Also, I'm not the nicest guy in the room and lack some social skills, but giving up on filmmaking is not an option. Not anymore.

Thanks in advance!

I certainly didn't have social skills when I was first in the film industry and I also lacked confidence. Whether I was or am a nice person is not for me to decide. You can only be yourself. Be open, be collaborative, be attentive to others and, most of all, work hard.
