One of them is the tradition of breaking a plate, a favorite tradition for everyone, as well as a “hat” at the end of a project. ⠀
We take a white plate and write the names of all producers, directors and crew members. ⠀
On the first shift, after the first successful take or after the first shot, the director breaks the plate on the camera tripod. If the plate does not break, this is a bad sign. Well, if it crashed, then each member of the team takes a piece for himself, so that after filming, get together and put the plate – if all the pieces are collected, then the picture will definitely await commercial success.
But the most interesting fact is that the tradition is supported mainly in Russia – foreign colleagues are very surprised and ask a completely logical question – why do Russians beat dishes on the playground? So we wish all colleagues that all the pieces fit together! ⠀
