Understandably, you can’t really shut down city streets when you are making a low budget short film.
Obviously, we didn’t have much money to do so while filming The Climb.
For the most part, we used to steady traffic flow to our advantage but it backfired on two occasions.
It’s a cold Saturday afternoon and you’re 30 years old. Clearly you’re on your way to buy dish soap because you have nothing better to do with your weekend. After all, it’s on sale so why not pick up a bottle. Maybe two bottles? Nah only one, you don’t need two…
While you ponder the future of dish soap in your dwelling, you come across a film shoot.
Two thoughts go through your head.
- “Oh look, a film shoot! I’m going to be courteous and drive by without disturbing those nice people.”
- “I should really honk and screw up that film shoot.”
There were two idiots who chose Option 2 during production of The Climb.
They literally HONKED repeatedly while yelling out of their windows.
Who does that?
Here is what I think happened after the honking stopped…
They rolled up their windows and cranked Celine Dion while laughing to themselves. However, something happened next that they did not expect. They glanced at themselves in the rear view mirror and the smile disappeared.
They thought to themselves…
“I don’t have any friends to share this joke with… Perhaps it’s because I’m an idiot who finds it funny to honk while people are filming.”
It’s okay idiot… At least you’ll have clean dishes…
