Setup and Maintenance
Often nothing else can happen in the morning until the camera is assembled and placed into position. This is why it is so vital that the Assistants develop the habit of punctuality. Better to be a half hour early than a half minute late. If you absolutely must have your coffee and donuts in the morning (with California crews, your "Breakfast Burrito"), or must brag to the boys and girls about your new car or your date last night, or discuss the football game, then get there early enough to do that and still start your work on time.
