What I learned
Union or non-union, minor talent have very special needs to make sure they are comfortable on set. Bela was a rockstar to work with and I couldn’t be more grateful for her mother Marja and how she dedicated so much time and effort to this project. Not all productions will be so lucky to have such a dynamic duo, but working with both the talent and their parent is key to making it a success.
