Yeah, this wasn't a residual check like actors get if they show reruns of TV show. I was behind the camera and they are still paying off my agreed upon salary.

I did once play a non-union orangutan for the woman who did the Lion King on Broadway. That involved being a foam and straw costume in NYC in August. Now, I know you wondering, I bet the studio was air-conditioned right?. No, it was not. Good times.

When the union rep showed up they would shuffle us (me and the 7 orangutans I was chained too) off and lock us in some back room for few hours and throw in some Sprites.

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.

Dude, what is the movie? People will never find you in RL.

It's amazing what you can find on youtube. Quality is shit, though.

Orangutans start about 6:30

dumbest mistake I have seen on a set was when a jib operator accidentally hit the host of a cruddy in restaurant entertainment show in the back of the head with the camera when she wasn't paying attention between takes. He came down on her so hard she dropped to one knee.

The dolly grip on this job used show up everyday to work with a briefcase which I guess thought made him look professional. Somebody saw him open it one day and it was just filled with old skin magazines.


Also the story I heard was that the movie's original budget was very suspiciously close to the amount the producer's father was charged with embezzling.

Oh, another thing I just remembered was that the director threatened to stab me with a fork because I kept calling him a legend. I think he realized I meant a legend in his own mind.

He said "You don't stop calling me a legend, I'm going to stab you with this fork."
To which I replied, "And that would only add to your legend. It would be another legendary act by you."

Classic diss. Reminds me of one of the guys on Narnia, guy was almost 7 feet tall, played a cyclops. One of the ADs (Assistant Director) walks past him, and cyclops guy asks him nicely to grab him a coke from the cooler about 50 meters away... AD refuses, cyclops stands up and says, 'now.' Fastest I had seen that little guy move.

The funniest thing about all these little guys called ADs, is that they don't actually do anything. They are like little bitches running around the set.

wow, that was lovely. vaguely reminded me of something like "dark crystal" given a brit-com treatment... with kind of a fellini touch to guide it along. or something like that.

it's like roger waters said in that one wall song- "we've got 13,000 channels of shit on the telly to choose from," but i'd prefer to watch stuff more like that there playhouse film.
