Joe, glad you were amused, but that was one of those jokes that was so funny, it was true. :mellow:


I'm kind of embarassed how hard I cut into Frank and Satsuke almost a year ago. At the time I was working long hours for a job that was exploiting me for labor and utility money, so I apologize for the harshness of my words then.

So, hey, guys, hope you've gotten past what I said. I had no idea I came off on you that hard.

Most shows shoot 32,000 in the first 3 days!

The average drama today exposes about 10,000 feet a day for 8 days. Many episodes will hit 100,000 feet or more. That's what happens when you have two cameras rolling on almost every setup, and, shall we say, slightly less experienced directors than we used to have.

I do recall the days when we used to shoot for 7 days, expose about 40,000 feet total, and print about 2/3 of that. And that was on 4 perf. And we seemed to get just as much coverage as we often do today. Funny how that works...


I once cut an episode of a reality show that had a 120 to 1 shooting ratio. Most directors would benefit greatly from some time spent in the edit seat.

Karl,

I just want to say that I really appreciate and respect you for this very stand-up post.
