Knightswood Film Crew.

There was a fairly substantial film crew set up outside my local community centre earlier.

After a wee conversation with one of the crew it seems the flick in question is Peter Mullens new offering "Neds" and all was busy busy on set between takes.

I've managed to get a couple of pics including equipment etc as well as a wee shot of Scottish actor (of Trainspotting and many other mainstream titles) Peter Mullen after a difference of opinion, complete with a few choice sweary words, with an over zealous set security arse.

I had asked Peter if it was okay to grap a snap of him talking with his colleagues and he had happilly agreed (seems like a nice wee bloke btw) when security twat says "Here! You can't take pictures of Peter without the production crews' prior permission".

"I've asked the man and it seems ok by him" says I. Securitwunt turns to Mr Mullen and says "Is this right?" to which Peter replies "Aye, he's fine".

Securitwat turns to me and says "I'll still have to stop you from taking any pictures until I clear it with production staff."

"Good luck with that." says I and proceeds to snap away complete with a "I don't fancy your chances mate" from the Mullen man himself directed at Bing Hitler and accompianied with a wee laugh and a smile.

I thanked Mr Mullen for the pics to which he replied "Nae bother Big Man." with another broad smile and a nod in the security blokes direction.

Cue one pissed off Securitwunt standing looking forlorn and rather pathetically useless and me walking away with my wee photographic prize.



Anyway .. heres the pics (phonecam jobs I'm afraid):

Cracking bit of gonzo journalism.

Brilliant stuff DS but the guy was either thick or stupid taking on the Doorstop in the first instance... did he confirm which category he was?

This subject was raised on the DP review forum recently albeit in the US but the circumstances were identical to Doorstops. The outcome was that film companies 'Buy' the location  regardless if it's on public or private ground to retain all rights therein for copyright reasons and any photographs taken have to be sanctioned and approved by the producer/production company.

Apparently the same applies universally as the locations are licensed by local authority's/ councils etc. who coin it in from the production companies. They'll even throw in a police presence as part of the package as part of the deal if requested for added security/crowd control purposes.

Gap74 or Nodrog might be able to shed a bit more light on the subject on all things cinema related.

Someone tried that with my dad in Blackpool.

Robbie Williams had originally meant to film a music video in Southport but the location burned down (shame it couldn't have been with him in it but I digress). Somehow the back-up location was Blackpool on top of the Lucky Star in South Shore with the shoot itself scheduled for after dark so the illuminations could be turned on etc.

Anyway, my parents were down visiting me at the time and went along to check out the shoot. Some Waffen SS prick in a nylon bomber jacket told my dad he couldn't walk down a certain side of the road as it was "...closed for shooting..." I told the guy he was talking out his arse. He didn't take the news well and asked how I could be so certain. That's when I told him I was the one of the two people who went down earlier that day to tell them which roads they could shut. He took that news even worse.

This sorta sh!t really pisses me off  I went to the holow mountain yesterday at Cruachan and as i was purchasing a ticket i enquired if there were restrictions on photography.??

..The lass wasn`t sure, but her supervisor came along saying " no photographic or recording equipment alliowed " I said wots the point then ...that`s £16 you aint getting

Next up was  Inverary Castle at £7 a head and no pics allowed, needless to say the duke is £14 quid short tonight.

Why don`t these places advertise in thier brochures the fact that there are no pis allowed ?
Ooops mibees in the wrong thread here

I'm with you on that one. Seems a daft idea just to get extra sales of their own stuff but the logic is broken. Not letting people take photos of a view is a bit like trying to claim copyright on water or cats.

That can't apply here surely? How can a publicly elected body sell the rights (even on a short term basis) to a publicly owned building or land?

I'd be interested to hear the clarified position on this, should anyone know it.

A question for Alex maybe?

I'm getting the t-shirts made up as we speak.  

Everyone elses comments on the commercialism of all things photographable (is that a word?) these days are landing on ground already sown at this end. It's fecking ridiculous just how many ways so-called entrepreneurs think up to fleece the coins from the public.
sputnik

even if there were temporary sanctions put in place on that location you can bet  that fuckwit knew nothing of them.as for peter mullan,he really is a top bloke .

Not sure but will look into it.

I have noticed that there are more things happening in the City Centre - like special photo shoots. Always attracts lots of by-standers with their camera phones or cameras out taking photos and have never seen anyone being challenged.
