How do i avoid my film to fall apart?

I got 6 people to make this short, but none of us have any money, so i hoped you guys could give me some advices about how to conduct the crew so the film doesnt fail before it starts.
To consider: I'm not the nicest guy in the room and dont have that many social skills
And they liked the screenplay

If they like the screenplay then see if their willing to work for free if you give them the role they want. It's hard to give advice without more details but if the story is good that's the most important part. Use what you have and just get it done, you will learn during and after the process. Focus on sound more than what you shoot on, don't use guns or a ton of special effects, don't cast young people to play older people, stay away from any waking up or alarm clocks scenes and the "it's all a dream" twist and you are off to a better start than 75 percent of first time filmmakers. Also focus on sound, oh! and don't forget to focus on sound.
