I would guess that the train is just a reference to Walt's love of trains. He even built a small train in his backyard. What is on the flag? I've been trying to figure it out.

I'm guessing that movie has an odd aspect ratio, but when mastering it for DVD or BD it needs to fit inside either 4:3 or 16:9. Are you certain your screenshot is the actual picture? Because to me it looks like the actual picture is 16:9 with black bars on the side, and the black bars at the top and bottom are added by your player, hence the windowboxing ...

There's quite a lot going on with Storage Wars and a lot of it is vague (presumably due to potential legal concerns) but there have been instances of people who've turned up to watch filming noticing that the final product that airs is heavily cut and there have been a lot of "rumors" about items being moved or planeted. Storage Wars executive producer Thom ...

A behind the scenes article at Reality Blurred shed some light on the actual process with the help of magicians Shimshi, Penn and Teller from the show: Episodes film back to back: All six episodes are filmed over three days, so it’s back-to-back magic performances.

I THINK (but don't know) this is like the Q bit in a James Bond film. The team gets their stuff plus extras, spends their hour preparing, then the audience bit is done as part of filming the acts. The link to Q is they used to film that last, once all the sequences with the gadgets were filmed, so that was how Q knew just what to give Bond.

First off, it's definitely Dodger Stadium. The Wikipedia page for the stadium even states that: The baseball scenes from the first Naked Gun film were filmed at Dodger ...

Perhaps it also allows the same set to be used multiple times whilst giving the impression of it being a different location. I could imagine the Star Wars scene you mention lending itself to this quite well - grey corridors with occasional lights. When shot from approximately the same angle but with one scene reversed in post production it may give the ...

In this AMA session, a former contestant revealed that the whole weigh-in session takes a very long time, with multiple parts being redone. He couldn't reveal too much detail as he was legally obligated not to. An interesting part that he did reveal was that they were trained to always speak in the present tense during interviews. So my educated guess given ...

General crowd releases can be used, particularly when you don't need to control the crowd. These are common in general exterior shots and when shooting reality TV. But, in your example, this is very unlikely because you don't want the people recognizing your talent and messing up the shot. If the principal talent is in the scene, you can pretty much bet ...

So, I actually work in casting... There are honestly a couple ways to do this sort of thing and I'm going to take your example as a hypothetical because, let's be honest, you're probably not actually going to be casting Julia Roberts and/or Jonah Hill. No offense meant... just being realistic. Split the Difference You want someone to play both 30 and 50? ...
