Have a Cast and Crew Screening to Go to

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on February 1, 2016 in On the set |

    I received an invite for a screening of a movie I worked on 2 years ago. I am curious about this movie, how it came out? why it was delayed, but… what the hell, I want to see how things cut together, and if you can really light a scene with 2 candles… […]

Film Directing – Notes From the Trenches

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on June 30, 2014 in On the set |

  Haven’t written for a long time, and with that crossed one of the “no-no’s” of blogging. You have to be dedicated and provide new content, all the time. But when you work 70 hour weeks as script supervisor (yes, had to do that to make ends… closer), you get sucked into a new world, […]

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on February 15, 2013 in On the set |

This line was directed toward me, late one night, in a field outside Wilmington, North Carolina. It was a big production. The biggest this studio has made at the time. It involved a few units: The main unit – shooting the plot with the actors The stunt unit – shooting things that did not involve the actors […]

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on November 14, 2011 in promises, The search |

      There’s this promise which we grow up with and one we try to instill in our children. It seems this promised exist in many languages and many cultures; In Hebrew they say “There’s nothing that stands in the way of the will”, in English we say “When There’s a Will, There’s a […]

Being Script Supervisor II

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on August 30, 2011 in It makes me MAD, promises |

F@#k Her and The Horse… III

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on August 10, 2011 in promises, The search |

“The man you will marry will have an understanding of the human behavior.” He started immediately. “Ha?” He was reading from French notes, saying it outloud in English and I was ready to write it all down in Hebrew. “I don’t understand.” “He’ll understand and will have an insight to people’s feelings.” “Like a psychiatrist […]

F&*k Her and the Horse She Rode In On

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on August 1, 2011 in promises |

How to Kill an Actor in 5 Seconds

Posted by Rena Sternfeld on January 25, 2011 in Short Stories etc. |

The Film Director was a famous man. At 27 he won an Oscar for directing his second feature. Three years later he almost single handedly sunk a studio into bankruptcy with his third feature. The movie he was directing went horrendously over budget. That is not such a huge sin for a young film director in Hollywood, […]
