Directing a baby actor - Cute! But not easy.

My wife and I decided to make a commercial for the Crash the Superbowl competition.

Hollywood often uses twins when using baby actors but we decided we'd try our commercial with our one baby daughter.  The results were very cute and hilarious and totally worth it.   But it wasn't easy.  Since the baby was the star and focus of the video, we could only shoot for about 30 minutes a day.  So over three days, we were able to get enough cute video of her for 30 seconds.  Imagine how challenging that must be for a 30 minute sitcom or a 2 hour movie!
