There are six crew members here, in this small bedroom scene.
Most of the time actors learn their lines as they shoot, the whole pace of telenovela production is 10 times as fast as a feature film. I would imagine since telenovelas aren't finished products when they are aired, the input and reception of the audience adds to the various changes a telenovela script goes through. As we learned some actors prefer to just learn their lines as shooting is being done.
After Dr. A talked about how important credits are I started paying attention more to the opening names of my telenovela. Obviously the names of the main actors are shown in the beginning, but after the actor's name come the crew, casting, director of light, writers, who are credited differently than the person who did the original story, director, and general producers. I decided to look more into the production of Las Aparicios and found an interesting fact on a blog where I also got these photos from. During the production of Las Aparicios the director Moises Ortiz, would be very hands on with his actors.

Taking what we learned about production and doing some research into the production of Las Aparicio, it was fun being able to see the process work and some behind the scene pictures.
