In my earlier post we discussed about the mistakes made by ameture filmmakers. Today we analyze the examples of the mistakes made by professional filmmakers during shootings. Every filmmaker make mistakes, be it a ameture filmmaker or professional filmmaker. Ameture filmmakers make diffrent kind of mistakes which we discussed in last article but professional filmmakers generally make a mistake where crew members are visible in a frame.
Professional filmmakers have large sets and crew and its impossible to control the situations all the time due to which sometimes some crew members are visible in the frames but then they are professional filmmakers, they try to hide their mistakes during editing and can be found only when you watch the film frame by frame. Following are the five examples of crew visible mistake made by professional filmmakers.
Black Hawk Down- Man Wearing White T Shirt
Black Hawk Down has many awards including Oscars and Golden Reel Award. As you can see in above picture there is a man in the humvee who is not wearing army uniform. He is actually a crew member who forgot to duck down before shooting started,
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl – Cowboy Hat Guy
This is a shot from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl where Captain Jack Sparrow shouts “On deck, you scabrous dogs” while you can see a crew member in a cowboy hat is standing behind his left shoulder.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – Dueling Scene Blunder
As Snape pulls Draco back to his feet during the duelling scene in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, you can easily notice that the cameraman in blue jeans standing towards the left of the shot.
Gladiator – Crewman Wearing Jeans
Getting every historical detail of a movie set in the Roman Empire isn’t easy, and Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” certainly has a few errors. In one scene, a member of the crew wearing jeans can be seen in the background as Maximus feeds a horse.
Troy – Crew on Radio as Trojan Horse Appears
A member of the crew seen talking into a radio as the Trojan Horse is dragged into the city of Troy is one of the most memorable mistakes. Stuntmen wearing modern day clothes make several appearances.
