Is the Briefcase a true McGuffin? Definition of a McGuffin as follows: A MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or Maguffin) is a plot device (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plot_device) that motivates the characters and advances the story, but has little other relevance to the story.

Things went great with those girls at the table, till I found out two were married and the one had a boyfriend, and none of them cared.

I bounced.

Been down that road once before, ne'er again I say.

Mike, I didn't bother with the first girl trying to set up a screen test, but Amanda says she's interested. She's much more promising, trust me. If you want to set up a screen test tell me when and I'll let her know.

Go back to the same place, with the same coat, with a wallet in the pocket, and thermite in the wallet. After the creep takes it, wait 1 minute and press the happy little watch detonator, and watch what happens. Thermite does not explode, but will burn a hole through an engine block, so you can imagine the joy if he has it in his back pocket.:violent5:

Hey Mike. I'm sorry to hear about the wallet. How low is that? Times are tough I guess. Anyways I thought this might inspire you. Nod nod wink wink.
Just me testing out my 'special delivery package' to the wallet thief.

I'M KIDDING FOLKS. I'M KIDDING ( as the swat team takes position around my perimeter.)

I thought you might get a chuckle out of it. Shot it yesterday just for you. Yes that is yours truly. Hey, its Friday.

Yep...that is the worst! Well the worst is if they will not re-shoot, but still...it sucks. I totally believe that you will get better shots, in the scenes you need to, the second time around though! Good luck with the reshooting!:thumbup: :beer:

or the worst is when, your Director....who isnt a director, doesnt tell you till after the whole day of shooting that, all the stuff we just shot indoors, with that beautful morning glow... just looked at the script and realised that it was supposed to be a Night sequence.

THAT is the Worst.

I missed three brief shots this past weekend. Two actors will need to return One won't be any problem, as he lives with me. The other should be available too. Still bites. Both shots I should've caught. At least they're short.

Yeah since everyone is working for free I am afraid of not being able to reshoot and one of the locations was a one shot deal..... so i may need to do some creative editing...YIKES

I try to be always available, but keep in mind this weekend is Cinco De Mayo. I'm actually not going out at all this week to make sure I got plenty of energy for saturday night. Which pretty much slaughters sunday morning, but otherwise I'm probably avail.

Just want you all to know this is Lucidz fault. He started some freaking lawn mower dance thing.. then started talking about some guy doing the sprinkler on a bar. which apparently is a dance and not someone pissing all over the place like a bad Quentin Tarantino joke.. soo then this happens :beer: the f*&%$#@ truck driver dance.. we're trying to film PEOPLE :)

lucidz
05-02-2007, 06:04 AM
Well now everyone knows what you're getting into when you shoot with me! Its a party all the time, every time!!!!

But seriously, its my feeling that if you want to minimize the "AH DAMNIT!" when you have to reshoot, make sure people are comfortable and have a good time. Its easier to rationalize having to get up at 6:30 am yet again on a saturday to show up somewhere. :)

(Plus I'm just a cut up!)

Hey Carli. Welcome to DVX. Yeah the guys get hung up on the kissin. We don't get out much. (Or get much of anything, haha). Just had chicken and a little bordeaux in a disco. (Actually it was a can of roasted peanuts in my basement while chugging a beer.) But hey, I'm there in spirit.:beer:

Congrats on getting near wrap, Michael!

I just saw those pix on page one... looks like fun. And I see you still haven't been able to get your dvx off of that mic stand! :grin:

What camera is that on the "real" tripod??? I don't recognize it. And speaking of the tripod... I am expecting my Bogen 3191 sticks, 3066 head and 3067 dolly to arrive this week!!! (very similar to the one in your pic) I found it on Craigslist in CA. I am so excited to have a "real" tripod myself!!!

Michael_Petro
05-07-2007, 06:37 AM
YEp loving the tripod... ain't mine though... got to get me one... its amazing how much better that manfroto is than than $100 tripod and head I was using.. also my micstand monopod combo gets me some pretty nice steady shots. wait you'll see.. Got one re shoot to do on the 20th then done, but its just some filler stuff no big deal we should be there about an hour tops mostly setting up the lights..

one minor annoyance is I missed a shot completely so I will have to do some creative editing for that part. fortunately it wont mess with the flow at least I hope it wont.

Hey Mike. I logged into your work cam last week and yeah it was weird. I was not sure if it was live. You looked at the computer and sat down like you were waiting for me(whoever) to say something. I didn't know where to type then basically ran the hell out of there. I like your shop though. I'm not used to that live feed stuff yet. You've got more guts than I have. :)

Oh the "i before e except after c" rule does not apply to "weird". I am not smarter than a fifth grader(T.V show).

In relevant dvx info If your gonna film in a bar and grille consider all the noise they make ARRRGGGHHH refrigerators.. jager machines and fortunately they are all in the voice midrange freq.. which is nice<sarcasm> makes it impossible to notch it out without everyone sounding like they are on an am radio.

Michael... I like this image very much. It is an interesting choice of background. My point is, at first glance she almost comes off as part of the painting.

Very cool look indeed!:thumbup:

Yeah I liked it when I saw it... That scene was originally intended to be an outdoor balcony scene but the wind was gusting at 30 mph that day so I saw that and said hey lets do it there. kinda glad it was windy.

Thanks man... the secret is... SADLY! We don't party... THIS is our play-time. I don't watch TV, Matt does a little, but not much and we pretty much obsess about this 24/7. Our wives our very accomidating and just kind of go with the flow and they are involved most of the time, as are my kids (Matt doesn't have any yet)... they are all involved in a lot . So every waking hour not at work, is dedicated to this.

It is a bit of an obsession really! :)

But hey... it is better than smoking crack eh! Sure Crack is cheaper, but it is worth the additional money eh!

I feel you on the audio brotha, and it's so important too.

Luckily I got some help on that front.

So are past the audio hurdle yet or still slogging through it?

Good luck in the final stretch here.
