In every industry, communication is a driving force to bring success to any work you need to get done. It is no different in film making. It is never a one man’s job. You need to work with people who are expert in different areas such as but not limited to acting, directing, screenplay writing, costume and props makers, researchers, and many more. If you are a type of person who doesn’t get along with people then maybe this field is not for you. But if you can change that destructive attitude then please change it by all means.
