Often we as independent filmmakers feel that we need a big crew in order to produce a film that looks and feels professional. I find however, that on many types of independent films (specifically those with limited budgets) working with a smaller crew can be optimal, which is why even established directors that have access to large budgets still sometimes opt to work with smaller crews. Large crews introduce more headaches and problems when there aren’t enough bodies on set to manage everybody, and ultimately the vision and messaging in the film itself runs the risk of getting watered down.
