It's rather ironic that, the more chaos is in your shot, the more orderly and planned out everything needs to be. It all must work like clockwork.

I recently shot a short that was extremely demanding. The director wanted to shoot many long takes involving lots of moving camera. We were getting about 3 shots daily because of how demanding these shots were in terms of lighting, blocking and execution. We also did many takes because the actors would flub a line 3 minutes into the take, so we'd have to start over. Certain shots were extremely frustrating, because I had no where to hide lights. A very rewarding experience, if I might say so.
