now there's a appartment house on the left, on the right, and at the back, all without windows of course, since those were once walls merging with the house missing now.
and right in the middle there is a huge tree, as high as the houses surrounding him, probably 15-20meters.
the guy who ownes this place is a retired lawyer who charged us 100euro just for coming and opening the chain blocking the entrace, altough he knew that we shot a noncommercial studentfilm with extremely tight budget.
okay, we agreed to pay for one day, but couldnt finish, because the steadicam operator
who would be so kind to operate for free for us had no time that day.
but that greedy old bastard won't let us shot another half hour there on tuesday (that's all the time we'd need, we are just missing one shot) without charging 100euros again.
so here i sit, with a steadicam operator at my hands the first time, a wireless bartech radio focus unit scrounged from another operator i was recently assisting for, but a production that hasnt 100euros left(/doesnt want to pay another 100 euros) and beeing pissed off to no end.
goddamn, i'm angry.
so, what were your bad experiences with locations?
P.S: that shoot was the last day for the shortmovie i already posted the trailer for here ...
oh and sorry for the probably annoying rant and my bad english.
