How on Earth do I direct remotely?

Quite honestly, ​this is one issue that we've had trouble figuring out the logistics for, but it ultimately comes down to a matter of communication. It's a good idea to keep everyone you're leading just an e-mail away. Video-chatting with your assigned cameraman or animator will also ensure that you can direct production in real time.

Why do I have to sign a NDA?

As director, you would be involved at nearly every step of the process of development, including aiding the story team in writing the script. However, this does mean that you would know every detail of the film's plot, including any potential spoilers. We also have the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Cinematic Universe, which may affect what is done in certain productions. By signing the NDA, you agree to not disclose this information on our official wiki or anywhere else.

What if I have one or more crew members who are combative over certain directions to take the film?

We are aware that, since this process is a collaborative one, disagreements are bound to happen. With that said, you're the director, not a dictator, so it would be best to discuss the disagreement directly with the members of your crew. If you ensure that everyone is heard, you'll have a more enjoyable production.

What if one of my crew member goes behind my back and does their own thing with the project?

Again, this all boils down to communication, so if you discover that someone in your crew is intentionally trying to derail the project, first ask them what has happened. If nothing comes of this, talk to our administrative staff, and we'll help sort this out for everyone.
