I don't know what the best boy does, but we will get one. There has to be one somewhere. After all, I found my husband, and no one thought that was possible.
He will entertain the kid actors between takes. Kids like him and trust him. On second thought, maybe no kids in the movie. That was a tough thing to go through when I was little. Maybe CGI the kids. What's the difference between scale pay for kid actors and good computer work?
My husband can just run classes for sexual assault prevention, like he does for the military in his spare time. (Told you he was a keeper.) He works for free.

Not my house. I won't go that far. I have limits. I need one place in the world without any nightmares.
