Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Always use protection

Last night, we were shooting in the front yard of an absolutely gorgeous Craftsman home, which had, of course, been meticulously restored (and filled with beautiful antique furniture) by the very nice owners. Even though we weren’t shooting inside, we still had to put lights into the house in order to illuminate the windows.

Why they let us inside the place was beyond me. To protect the original woodwork (breathtaking, of course) and floors from us, everything was draped in bubble wrap.

Which is good – it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

    Isn’t it funny that when building exteriors are used at night how people just assume all they did was turn the normal lights on?

    Have a lovely Easter!

    Bubble wrap on the floor? That had to make walking the halls fun. :-)

    But do you get to have a popping party afterward? That could be hours of entertainment.

    One thing I will never understand is why people with nice houses let film crews in. Stuff is always going to get broken and often you won’t even notice until it’s too late. An AD (male) once had a good quote/motto; never let a film crew near your house or your wife. They’ll screw them both.

    I think I know why people with nice houses let film crews in. It’s $$$. But once is often enuff. My question is, why is every movie/TV location in a Craftsman house ?

    It’s just not the same shooting in a live house if you don’t walk in and breathe deeply of the smell of cardboard protection.
