And: action! On today’s episode, we’ll be discussing the first time Mandy Fabian ever sat in the director’s chair. We’ll talk about the learning curve that comes with making your first short film, dealing with actors and crew who have way more experience than you. Plus she tells me about the worst direction she ever gave an actor. But as today’s chat starts, directing is the last thing she ever wanted to do.
