I come from the feature world but recently got the opportunity to load for an entire season of a television show.
I know the majority of it will be the same. Loading is loading and paperwork is paperwork. I was hoping for some tips or insight into what to expect.
Any hard learned lessons or things that worked for you?!? All would be appreciated.
Loading for a TV Show

Yes, they are very similar except you will probably shoot 2 to 3 times more film in a day since your page count is higher. You will have moments of despair as you grind your way through the shoot. Chew away at it like a pit bull because you will get a second wind. At the end of 7 months you will have aged 10 years. Depending on the show you will probably spend most of your time on the stage. Try to stay on the set when not loading. Be friendly to everybody. Fights break out. Don't be part of it.
