It honestly does look like they do not know the camera is still rolling. When we shot the fishing shows and they would take the lure out furnished by the sponsor and pull a bass from the live well and hook it on there usually they would tell me "don't shoot this!" No money from the sponsor no show and we would all be out of business. Thatís exactly right about show business and ratings.
The first show we did Buck Trent and Sheb Wooley (sp?) were in the show. Buck Trent with flask in hand was nothing but a constant flow of foul language, complaining and calling people names and didnít care if I was shooting or not. We had tapes full of video with things that couldnít be used for anything. He has his own show in Branson and heís completely different on stage, heís a real phony. I get the impression heís a real unhappy person. He has his own show in Branson, MO now. Itís amazing how much you can learn about a celebrity by spending some time with them. I would go fishing with Sheb anytime, but Buck is not much fun to be around.
I guess the fact Iím so willing to tell on the producers of TV shows may have something to do with me no longer being in the business. Of course I quit editing the fishing shows when they ask me to mix ĹĒ video with 3/4Ē production video back then. The producer didnít like me much after that. They edited the low quality video into the show and put my name on the credits so I would take the blame for what they did.
What I want to know is was that video of the Most Haunted team taken from an actual show or where did the video come from? How did that get past the producer and the director? _________________ http://www.dream-link.org/spookyplaces

Who knows!? Now-a-days you can get any information you want if you know the right people. Hollywood and the BBC are full of drama queens and talkers. No one can keep a secret in the film biz. If you do something stupid it will get out in that clique! _________________ Frank Ratka
I know of an outdoor production company who were shooting a bear hunting show and never saw a bear. In order to appease their sponsors they paid the manager of the hotel to take the stuffed bear out of the lobby and use it in the production, as if it were a live bear. They had a man holding the bear behind some bushes and moved it around just enough to let the camera catch a glimpse of it then they showed the guy shooting the bear, but never showed the bear again. The producer I was working for knew this other producer and he's the one who told us the story, as he was trying to convince us that it was all right to fake things in these shows and it was "good for the business." _________________ http://www.dream-link.org/spookyplaces
