SuburbanCowboy: As if they couldn't easily fix this. Normal every day shots on tv shows still have green screen.

Doubleplus ^this^. Only amateurs actually film on real streets.

Here's an early clip from Star Wars Episode VII. The effects haven't yet been completed:

Dr.Zom: A lot of anti-Hollywood haters in this thread. I'm sure you guys don't watch movies or TV and only get your entertainment from local theater and when the circus comes to town.


I have cats.  They put on puppet shows for me.

dookdookdook: Thank god I live in a place (Nebraska) with enough parks and undeveloped land that the bike paths can cut through safe, quiet areas with almost nothing around instead of inches away from multi-ton hunks of metal going 2-3 times faster than you

while their drivers are talking on their cellphones or, far worse, being Lindsey Lohan.

Copenhagen has grade/curb separated bike lanes with separate stoplights for bikes. Americans are horribly behind when it comes to this sort of thing.


Just watch out for the gargoyles.

Location scouts 2020: The city needs to paint the bike lanes green so they match the bike lanes in other cities. Leaving them the same color as the rest of the road makes it hard for LA to fill in for other cities.

kg2095: funmonger: We're not even cheap labour up here anymore. We're skilled and we have unmatched movie infrastructure, thanks in part to gov incentives.

You can't possibly have unmatched movie infrastructure - the Australian movie industry has. As well as Australian farmers being the most efficient in the world, Australian produce being the best quality in the world, Australian actors taking Hollywood by storm, Australian I.T. entrepeneurs invading Silicon Valley and showing the 'Yanks' how it's done, Australian manufacturing being the most innovative in the world, the Australian economy being the envy of the world, Australia being God's own country, Australia punches above its weight in this and Australia is better than anyone else at that, blah, blah , blah - every time I turn on the TV, the radio or read a newspaper. Oh, and at the same time I will hear things like Americans are overly patriotic and big-headed,

Little country syndrome.


No, really. It is literally unmatched in soundstage size, and the a good many of the big films you watch are Meade here, at least in part.

Not sure what Little Country Syndrome is, but you sound fat.

"We spend so much time fighting to keep filming in the city and to keep the city film-friendly, and when something like this happens, we can't take it lightly,'' Duffy said in an interview. "We're in a crisis mode, and every one of these little things just puts us more into a crisis."

Looks like failed screenwriters can become location scouts.
