’, ’10 Items or less’, ‘The sweet life’, ‘To the Bone’, ‘Life’ and ‘Revolucion’. So in total, she has successfully produced fourteen movies till date which received a great review and rating. When she asked about her do’s and don’ts, she replied in don’ts that giving actors their private peace and space should always be in concern; don’t neglect it because it throws the hard-work and creative work out. Then she says that no one should assume shooting the complicated scenes easily, without keeping the extras in the place and control; especially the ones which are full of crowd. She says accomplishment becomes very rare at that point. She adds up by saying that at the time of production, there is no need to jump in contingency as there are so many by which a person gets attacked financially at any specific instant.
Then she discussed a few points about the do’s in the production circuit in which she particularly talked about the sets of the movies which require a lot of money to be put on their dressing, so she said use the sets which already are quite dressed and decorated so that a bit of funding is saved. She also added that the crew becomes grumpy if they are not properly fed, so never take the chance of leaving them hungry. Quite a basic thing told by her was that whenever crew people are hired, it is needed to make them assured about their job for the film’s sound editing, screening, makeup etc so that they already start a plan for preparations in their mind; due to which the performance gets enhanced of these people. This was all about her do’s and don’ts tips in production.
Talking about her company, Mockingbird pictures made her a hit and because of it, she could showcase her talent!
