comment Were old TV shows routinely sped up for some reason?
@Catija I added a reference to a story in the WSJ. But there are many more, just Google: old tv shows sped up for more commercials

comment What is this vehicle during the filming of the bus flip in Terminator Genisys
There are at least two separate cars -- the one you show as your first sill, with the cameras at the back, and the one I am referring to. One runs ahead of the bus, and the other runs alongside it.

comment What is this vehicle during the filming of the bus flip in Terminator Genisys
Although your top still is interesting, with the cameras visible at the rear, that is not the car I was referring to. The one in my post (which is the same as your second picture) doesn't have any cameras mounted at the rear; there is just a bare wooden deck. Although that could be a camera mounted under the front rail, I don't understand why they didn't use the rear deck instead which is much larger. Plus I don't remember any shots from this angle ending up in either the trailers of the movie.

@GuruGulabKhatri I grabbed the screenshot from the video clip I linked to. I agree, I don't remember any shots in either the trailers or the final movie that were that close to the bus, except for the camera mounted underneath the bus itself.

@Richard Then why aren't there any cameras?

comment How much does a staff writer make on a TV show?
@Catija Wow, had no idea it was so structured. I assumed everything was negotiated on an individual basis (which, as a contract programmer, is the way it works in my profession).

comment How does ADR work?
@wbogacz "automated is not equivalent to automatic" Actually, the first entry in Collins Thesaurus for automated is automatic.

comment How does ADR work?
@wbogacz But I can see how it could be automated; as you were suggesting. A computer could input the original dialogue from the soundtrack, separate out the words (if our smart phones can do that, an expensive computer should do an even better job); then repeat for the words spoken by the actor and line them up by stretching or reducing a little of the time between the actor's words. Come on Hollywood, not that difficult.

comment How do they shoot live commentary in reality shows?
Agree with the huge amount of editing. Years ago my wife and I participated in a half-hour reality show that was filmed over three days. They shot 18 hours of video which was edited down to 22 minutes of air-time footage (Some people get 15 minutes fame; we got 22.)

comment Legality of using fake license plates in movies
@his I was think more along the lines of when a car is filmed from a helicopter and shown driving down a highway in regular traffic, where the road would not be closed..
