Films, drama and scandal !
Updated: Aug 6, 2020
Everything associated with film industry has its own unique nature which is bound to create news which is actually filled with gossip, a lot of weird variations of drama and the last but not the least being scandals.
Same happened with me when my career started. The first film that I worked on was written, directed and produced by the not-so-famous politician from the town of Oshawa who served as a council member for two terms.
The film was about a girl who had Misophonia which is a sound disorder in which certain sounds trigger emotional or physiological responses that some might find unreasonable given the circumstances.
The shoot happened at a very famous restaurant "Berry Hill" in Oshawa and got wrapped up beautifully in 12 hours with a wrap party.
Now comes the part where all the drama started. The director wanted to send the film to all the film festivals and for that the film was supposed to be shot in a particular format but due to the lack of proper communication between the director and the cinematographer, the film didn't get shot in the right format and that ended up aggravating the anger in the fierce politician and she ended up forfeiting the payment that was supposed to be given to the cinematographer.
As a result, the film was a major flop since no amount of money or editing could save that film from being choppy.
So the lesson learnt here is that no matter what, always check the specifications required and keep a document of that with you as a reminder and keep your communication clear and open.
