I just got a $53 check for a movie

Get your money up front kids.


That is all.

hmm, 1993... what was playing, then? couldn't have been even slightly big or you'd have been paid much earlier no matter what your relationship was to the flick. unless union or specific actors rights or something were held up, but then that could lead down an endless labyrinth as a relevant trivia question.

how about an obscure or semi-obscure movie that recently came out on DVD, possibly as a collection? maybe a horror film or a documentary...? something made in the 'east coast hollywood' rather than the traditional schlemiel.

if that's all wrong, how about a hint? :D

It was part of a deferred payment plan. It was a way independent movies kept their budgets low. In theory when they sold the movie, then all the folks whose payments were deferred should have gotten paid. But that would have required the idiot producers not to spend like crazy on the soundtrack. So every few years, I get a check.

Did you take part in a child porn session and just get paid your court settlement?

I see you answered the question on my mind already. Good night to you, sir.

I have no idea what generates another payment. It could be they sold the TV rights in Eastern Europe or something.

Not giving any hints on the flick though.

I used to be boom op. Though I don't think I did that on this film.

I don't think a movie grossing close to one billion dollar have a hard time paying out $50.

I figured he was in some cheesy kids movie with an expensive soundtrack, like he mentioned. Jurassic Park did not have an expensive soundtrack.

I am a fat redhead, but it's none of those movies. I was in one scene though.

It was a steadicam shot through a house during a party. To give you a level of the competence on this movie, we were on the other side of the house and they never told us they were beginning the next take. We didn't they had started up until we saw the camera. So I'm sure the camera caught us just standing there doing nothing and then all start "acting."

I was not there the day they forgot to put a stopper on the dolly tracks and ran the camera dolly in the Mercedes being used in the scene. A camera dolly is usually about 300 pounds of metal.
