The Shoot

The director's in love with the lead actress, but the lead actress is secretly sleeping with her co star, whose ex-wife is the line producer. Nobody likes the line producer because she turns up in the middle of the day acting like the most important person in the world. The production assistant keeps messing up the coffee, and the other assistant keeps annoying the DOP with enhance-my-career questions. The sound guy is unhappy because no-one informed him there would be planes in the sky, and the make up girl is annoyed because the 2nd AD made a joke about her job being easy. The camera assistant ate all the chocolate biscuits and the executive producer is currently looking for the chocolate biscuits. The writer is angry because he's picked up the day's pages and doesn't recognise any of his dialogue and two of the extra's just broke the set because they were leaning on things to look-like-they-belong.

And then it wraps and these people will never be together again.

Care to share?

  1. Ah! So not so different from the corporate world, eh? Funny how the characters are th same no matter where you put your briefcase. But at least you have the comfort of knowing that in your industry, eventually it all wraps ups, and you can take that black leather case elsewhere. ;)
