I refuse to watch this, and members of the First Curch of Batman, Scientist are likewise forbidden.
The DP on TERMINATOR SALVATION, Shane Hurlbut, is a apparently a light tweaker. He's a fairly young DP and likes to fiddle with his lights on set during action, which is a big "NO NO" on most productions unless worked out in advance with performers. But apparently Shane was a pretty unrepentant light tweaker.
The scene in question, was a very emotional and tough scene between Christian Bale and Bryce Howard. A scene that required soul bearing and a deep level of immersive concentration. The sort of scene where everyone on set knows not to get in anyone's eye lines, and definitely not to move lights around while FILMING. You lock that shit down before the scene starts.
Bale had indeed warned the DP on multiple occasions about messing with lights while the cameras were rolling, and Bale was in the midst of a painful scene with Bryce, what was described to me as being the emotional center of the film and his character for the film.
On 22 July 2008, Bale attended a London police station by appointment and was arrested in connection with an alleged verbal assault on his mother, Jenny, and sister, Sharon, who called the authorities. After being held for more than four hours, he was released on bail, pending further investigation. He has denied these allegations. On 14 August, British police declared that they would take no further action against him. [bolding mine]
“…according to Ain’t It Cool News, there’s more to the story.
‘The DP on ‘Terminator: Salvation,’ Shane Hurlbut, is apparently a light tweaker,’ Ain’t It Cool editor-in-chief Harry Knowles reported on Tuesday. ‘He’s a fairly young DP and likes to fiddle with his lights on set during action, which is a big no no on most productions. But apparently Shane is a pretty unrepentant light tweaker.’
Not only that, but Bale was in the middle of filming a scene that laid down ‘the emotional center of the film and his character’ with Bryce Dallas Howard when Hurlbut’s interruption came.
‘The scene in question was a very emotional and tough scene,’ Knowles wrote. ‘A scene that required ... a deep level of immersive concentration.’
A source told Knowles that Bale had ‘warned’ Hurlbut on multiple occasions about changing the lighting while the cameras were rolling, and that otherwise, he’d been an ‘utmost gentleman and cool guy’ on the set.
‘Transformers’ director Michael Bay, a man who’s seen his fair share of intense on-set moments, also weighed in on Bale’s actions in an interview with Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and ‘The Billy Bush Show’ on Wednesday.
‘Everyone’s allowed to have blow-ups on set, OK?’ Bay said. ‘It’s a very tense place. I could totally understand Christian’s point of view — it takes him out of the scene when he’s trying to give it his all.’” *
