Directing Tip from Jeff Tremaine (The Dirt, Bad Grandpa, Jackass): Make a gang.
"One thing that I’ve done on all my movies and shows...is make a gang. After wrap, we’d go out to a dive bar and punish our livers for a bit. We’d hang out... And that led to the cast and crew bonding together.... if you hire crew who are great at their job, really care about the project, and understand what you want, they will take care of making your movie look great. Then you can concentrate on working with the actors and creating a world for your film.
It worked though. We became a family, both in front of the camera and behind, and it made for a great movie."

Steve-O in Fort Lauderdale
Although @steveo might be a household name few people know that he is a graduate from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey clown college and actually worked as a clown in a circus at the Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop flea market.
This is especially hilarious to me. Growing up my parents were flea market junkies. I mean they were crackheads for a flea market and went so far as routing our trips to visit family in other states by which flea markets we could hit on the way. I guarantee I've been to more flea markets than most people would ever believe.
Growing up down in Homestead Florida the Swap Shop was the closest 'big' flea market to us (about a 45-minute drive) and not only have I seen the circus there, but I remember when it first started. They showed movies in between acts and I actually sat in the bleachers there and watched the movie The Bear while my parents hunted for treasures in the sea of vendors outside.
I used to make a couple bucks hustling kids at the air hockey table in the game room by the circus, and although I stopped frequenting that flea market before Steve-O worked there it still gives me cause to feel kindred to him.
