Hurry Up & Wait!
One of the first things you will learn by being on set is that there is a lot of "Hurry up and Wait." You may not fully understand what this means until your first time on set, but it's an inevitable part of this business.
I just walked you through an all too common scenario for a day on set. The glitz and glamour aren't abounding when you are on set filming. (That comes later!)
It's just a part of the biz. There is no point in complaining, you won't fix it or make it go faster. Just make sure you bring things to entertain yourself, meet some new friends, and enjoy the intricate process of film-making from behind the scenes.
