In my country it's mandatory to have covid "supervisors" in shootings (ones with budgets and a lot of people though) The more there is people on set, the more "supervisors" is requested on set too. They obviously make sure the protocols are respected and have to have some medical training too, they can be doctors or nurse or medical assistant.
But it's actually the insurance companies and production companies that pushed this too. And I have to tell you, those protocols are kind of crazy and seems really hard to respect. I can't say if they really are or not.
But you tell me that the US don't anything like that? Production companies went "fuck it, the assistants can do this", and insurance companies went "alright let's roll baby!".
Watched it twice already, waiting for my citizen kane blu ray to watch it again and then watch Mank a third time.
Fincher didn't make just a movie about the writing of Citizen Kane, he made it to be like Citizen Kane and Mank are the two sides of the same coin.
Magnificient movie, and for the first time I hope they'll release a netflix movie on Blu Ray.
It was the next logical step of the digital revolution.
All the hardware that was analogic can now be replaced with digital, so now the focus is becoming more and more "can we combine this and that to change this".
That's what extended reality is about too. But we're still living in the infancy of digital, a lot more innovations are coming.
I don't know what we are complaining about with streaming services.
They're so much cheaper, much more convenient and have way more content than any video services we ever had before.
You can have like 4 or 5 services for $50 a month. And you will never be in need of new content. Compared to what we used to pay for channels, or the price of VOD, we should be happy.
So $5/10 to watch 9 seasons of the office and yes EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE SERVICE, and you can terminate your subscribtion anytime. I really don't see something to complain about.
I see it like this.
He is right to say all of this.
Did he do it in a harsh way? Yes.
Did he needed to do it this way? I don't know, I wasn't there.
Heavyweight Directors Vs. Warner Bros,
my bet is on the multi billion dollar corporation.
I think it's always a safe bet.
