Ok, maybe it is a little bit age, and maybe it is just the frustration of getting the emotional scene perfect, only to have it ruined by a crew member answering their phone, while cameras & sound were rolling! Seriously, what is going wrong on set these days? It is not just a me thing either. Friend working a feature reports back to me, new young producer talking on his phone and pacing back and forth, while rolling...and when my friend said to shut it down...he was threatened with firing. Young producer was a bit shocked to find out he not only could not fire my friend, or anyone else... he was told to learn basic set protocol by the Exec Producer and to stop talking on his phone, when cameras roll. Do these new cast and crew not understand how much money is lost, from people running their mouths, walking across set or knocking things about, while rolling? Do they have no idea how disruptive it is for an actor to go through a heavy emotional scene...nail it...barely be able to think after... and then hear it has to be done again, because someone had to run their mouth or walk around, during the shot? Do they even think about the poor sound guy with headphones who just got his hearing tested? What part of "Quiet all around", is not making sense? Is anyone here noticing this happening? Curious what other things you may have seen on set, that surprised the heck out of you...from newbies. Dish..but don't use names or identifiers! We don't need to embarrass anyone, by name! Perhaps by telling these things..a few new folks will learn, before they walk on a set!
