Very funny, Elvis guy. Yes, sounds like a good story for film.

Actually once, we forgot to bring film. Very funny, everybody assumed the other guy brought it. Not so funny for the producer of course.....

Ouch!

Then again, you're filmmakers, not film bringers. No problem, just... make some film!

i got few bad experiences . but i think the worst is the last one . 3 days in the last week end . i'v been to shoot a cars show . drifting and cars going on two weels and stuff like this .
most of the drivers were professional stunt , so , no problem whit them . But this crazy guy who organize all the contest , doing drifting and pretending to be the star of the event ... >:((( cause he pretend to be funny , trying to scare me with couple of dangerous tricks

so , couple of shoot were very dangerous , and i risk a lot : and they did not understand that shooting is not that easy , and in that contest more .

so , i reccomend you not to do shoot like that.

hope i explaine myself . cause right now i fell quite hangry and depressed , and my english is worst that usual

thanks

I'd say the worst experiences as a Line Producer are with writer/directors unwilling to cut down their scripts because the dialogue is too much. So the actors struggle a little bit with these scenes that have 4-5 pages of long dialogue diatribes.

In post, they can't cut anything out because it'll hurt the film (or they don't want to cut it out); if only they took a paragraph of dialogue and turned it into a line or two BEFORE production. Usually, they aren't accepted into fests because of this.

I advise all up-and-coming writer/directors to cut your dialogue down, your scenes, too, if you're on a micro budget. It's hard, I know, but do it for the sake of your film. An occasional monologue that advances the storyline is cool, but not every other page.

Also, a dialogue-driven movie isn't a bad thing, but they're a rare breed (think Noah Baumbach's excellent KICKING AND SCREAMING, now on Criterion DVD).
