My Does This Happen to You moment was working with a new filmmaker this last weekend. He did not break down the script into the shots he needed. He thought actors couldn’t say more than a few lines of dialogue at a time. The lead actor acted as shot adviser and the supporting actors, me and two others, chimed in if it appeared we’d go entirely off the rails. We survived but Cedar the dog was traumatized. We used the supporting actress’ house for the filming location. The scene called for lots of yelling and Cedar the family dog ran away down the street every time the yelling began. We did several takes. The actress’ husband chased down Cedar after every take to bring her back safely.
And now, here is The Drunken Cyclist’s Does This Happen to You moments while leading a cycling tour group through the Champagne region of France. You will find the Drunken Cyclist’s blog right here on WordPress.
