#1) Be Your Own Matchmaker
I hate to burst your bubble, but when the director calls “cut” and you’re forced to re-meet someone for the third time, the whole encounter loses the charm and spontaneity of a first impression. You can never tell what’s a genuine awkward pause, because there are so many orchestrated halts and pit stops along the way. What should be an organic conversation turns into a goofy-footed dance of camera angles, “marks,” positioning, and lights. If you ask me, I’d rather keep it real than stress about where the cameras are and which direction I'm supposed to stand.
