The reporter of this article was somewhat involved in production of the film; discussed below, 1 2.

Reporter's notes edit

  • potential COI disclosure: I was the script supervisor for this short film, and also had a bit part in it as well. I have made no financial investment in this film and expect very minimal remuneration from my participation in it (just for fun! .....and it was fun!) --Bddpaux (talk) 19:45, 27 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Question asked of director/writer, Amanda:

Q: How did the idea for the script come to you?
A: "We often see the efforts of filmmakers being put to the test when it comes to creating fantasy or horror based movies. I had always wondered what would happen if their dreamscape became their reality and how they would react. For this film, they're so entwined in what they're doing they can't even tell the difference between real zombies and the fake ones. Considering the hilarity of that concept, I decided to write a comedy on that very subject." --Bddpaux (talk) 22:21, 27 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I know the Liberty Theater bit, as director told me on March 18th. ....and yes, the Liberty Theater (major renovation several years back) is 'historic' (because its older than dirt!) --Bddpaux (talk) 22:10, 27 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Review of revision 4299890 [Not ready] edit

I get your points here.....so, I can only provide some basic facts. My 'script supervisor' role was quite simple.....I watched the scenes and recorded the time taken per shot. That's about it. I signed up for a pretty minor role....I guess it grew slightly over time, but that's really all I can say. Post-facto, the director/writer chose to name me as a 'producer', but again, I didn't formally sign up for that role at the outset....and I've certainly done minimal 'producing'. Also, if it matters: this is a short film. It'll be submitted to a couple of film festivals and that's about it, really. I can't claim to be free from biases (in this, or many other things for that matter), but I'd have a hard time figuring out what they might be here. Hope that helps. --Bddpaux (talk) 16:03, 28 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Bddpaux: That's just the sort of information I wanted. Makes things much clearer. Thanks. --Pi zero (talk) 16:28, 28 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
