- find location
- make sure that every component of the movie runs smoothly
- I have a say in how the scenes unfold, what props are going to be used, how the characters should look, and who should play specific parts.

As the movie director, I was responsible to try for out group to meet and create a plan for out final film. Unfortunately, the corona virus outbreak brought me some difficulties as we weren’t all together to decide what to do and were not allowed to go outside. Nonetheless, I arranged a zoom meeting where our group could safely meet and discuss what we were going to do.
Of course, we discussed the possibility of filming the movie like we were going to do from the beginning, but due to some special occasions we have in out family, we agreed it was better to do something else; we could not put our family at risk.
Then, I proposed to film ourselves (each one of us in our houses) and then send all the videos to the editor so she could put them together and create the movie. And in fact, we did try it, but it did not come out as we hoped it would; it was low quality, and since we all were in different scenarios, it wasn’t clear what was going on. Also, the sound was horrible and it was just a mess overall.
Finally, we simply decided to explain in our blogs the situation and try to continue them with what we have.
