Fubar

Has anyone seen the movie "Fubar".

I watched it on TV last night and was puzzled by a few things.

I was under the impression it was shot digitally then transferred to film. But if you watch the credits, there are 2 loaders on the crew.

Was it film? or simply an extremely lazy camera operator that couldn't figure out how to slap a tape into his camera?

Well my background is theatre/opera, not film... however in our profession a "loader" is somebody who loads and unloads scenery and equipment from trucks. In major cities they are members of the teamsters union. Do you suppose this is what the credits refered to? I know that the film and video shoots in our area use teamsters as truck loaders.

From the sounds of it Nori maybe they should have been called "packers". If it was made in BC then maybe they should have been called "pickers".
