Two sides to every story... but dang - that could have been tragic. Probably a good idea next time to let the locals know what your doing first.

28 years ago some kids who were shooting a scene for a film they were doing in my filmmaking class (and who had gotten permission from a local bank) were arrested for trying to rob a bank in town. All was finally resolved, but a lesson was learned by both the kids and their teacher.

Several "It's only a movie!" signs in strategic places?

that sounds like a perfect way to rob a bank.

"Even the person who was supposedly the hostage,"

Of courses. SOP unless the hostage is known to police in advance.


"I guess I didn't realize how bad it looked," she said

A big "Duh!" for her.


Several "It's only a movie!" signs in strategic places?

How about something more effective. like:

Probably a good idea next time to let the locals know what your doing first.

Starting with the local constabulary. In many cities, a permit is required, even for low-budget moguls. Part of that is to let everybody know, and often to have a police presence for traffic control and so *nobody* mistakes the filming for an actual crime.

Many years ago James Coburn was filming The President's Analyst in New York. He told of a scene where he runs down the street being pursued by "police". Unfortunately, they hadn't told anybody they were filming, and an NYPD uniform saw the approaching foot pursuit and took Coburn out with a punch.

In a few minutes the mistake was realized, and Coburn and company learned an object lesson.

There was a *great* scene in the final product where Coburn fakes being shot. Cracked me up!




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
