Walkie talkies are the best way to go, please do a search for recent discussions on walkie talkies. Or if you are in close distance shouting/ talking face to face will help.

It also depends on how many people are on set, and what roles they have. And what role you have?

Please provide more information...

Communications on-set for cheap.

I was doing some research online and I ended up going with something that's been working great for me...ESP.

It's cheap, free upgrades and the tech support is good too.

SCREAMING and WEEPING also gets the ideas across.
