What are your benefits expectations?
Oftentimes, production directors receive some other kinds of perks of working this job. If the production requires travel, they are given a stipend for food and hotels, and even sometimes gas money when traveling to the productions. Otherwise, they receive some kind of stipend for buying tickets to see other productions or to send friends and family. The candidate should discuss what other benefits they hope to receive.

Christina's Answer
"At my previous job, I received free hotel stays when I had to work for a three-day stretch close to the production. I would appreciate getting a stipend for staying at hotels while on the job if they require more than an hour of travel from my home."
2.
How well do you work with quick changes?
Sometimes, a piece of the set will break, a cast member will get sick, or weather will interrupt filming. The candidate should discuss their experience working with changing situations and how they are able to manage the situation even on short notice.

Christina's Answer
"I work well with sudden changes because I consider myself very adaptable. I always have a back-up plan and can make it look like our first plan in the first place."
3.
Do you consider yourself someone who deals well with stress?
The candidate should discuss their experience working under stress in the workplace, and how they continue to work well despite being pressured or feeling stressed. Especially in this superior role, stress can come through many outlets of the job, and the candidate should be able to talk about how they have worked in the past with stress and are confident they will succeed.

Christina's Answer
"I feel that I am able to handle a lot more work even when I am stressed, because I am more focused and less worried about aspects of the project that do not concern me. I am able to give others some responsibility and focus on my job alone."
4.
What is your experience with technical directions on set?
The candidate should be well versed to both give and receive technical directions. This shows they are capable of doing the job and communicating to their team in a timely and widely understood way in the field of producing and directing.

Christina's Answer
"I am able to coordinate well with all branches of the production staff. From discussing scrims in lighting to simple direction like stage left and right, these make the production run smoothly."
5.
Who is your inspiration in this career field?
The candidate should talk about who inspires them and why.

Christina's Answer
"My inspiration in directing is Bo Christensen. He has sent multiple films to the OSCARs for award winning foreign films, and I am inspired by his work."
