Gravity and Intense Stupidity teamed up once more to show after and for all that ‘Stupid is as Stupid does’. For any new men and women that are contemplating about relocating to Hollywood to operate as a crew member on a movie set I implore you to heed the words of ‘ Jon Anderson’ the direct singer of the band ‘Yes’ from their 1984 Album ’90125′ song entitled ‘It Can Happen’.

So watch out all you shortly to be extras they are gunning for you. (pun intended) The rest of the casualties on a set occur from the typical crew, like the creation assistants, the welders, the grips, the set dressers, craft providers and the unique efx guys. Just everyday individuals like you and me obtaining caught in the incorrect location at the improper time or doing something really stupid we weren’t meant to be performing in the initial area and get hurt due to the fact of it. I am not attempting to scare you, but you need to know that film and Tv sets are some of the most harmful areas to be around.
On top of that, you require to realize that this market in particular sectors is filled with some of the most significant idiots, pill poppers, stoners, and alcoholics the globe has to offer and they never actually care about their possess basic safety or yours for that make a difference. Do not be like them, the stupid kinds that live by the every day mantra “I would alternatively be lifeless and calme, then be alive and un-interesting.” Just be sensible about what you might be doing and usually pay attention to your environment when your on a productive production set. Do not have confidence in the other man, especially with your existence! He may possibly not know what he is undertaking, physically or mentally at the moment. Moreover, never do anything that you experience puts your well being at threat with no making use of the proposed basic safety devices that each creation ‘MUST’ supply to you.

If not, you could stop up like a single of these unlucky bastards. R.I.P.
