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.
Just to be clear, we’re talking about the third sequel to Terminator, right? A movie about robots that kill people? That is directed by a man named McG? Who also directed Charlie’s Angels, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and a Korn music video? OK. Carry on, assholes!
