Help for a TV show needed

Postby coppinpr » Tue Jan 12, 2021 6:03 pm

Ive been contacted by a company making a TV show that needs early amusement machines, this time they need 1930's (or very early 40's) pinballs, I should have more info tomorrow but it would seem they are willing to hire machines from their owners,I have told them all machines would need to be fully insured for loss or damage and owners would need that in writing.Anyone interested in getting involved pleases PM me,

From personal experience, many times over, my advice is simply steer clear. Film and TV companies are a total pain in the arse and are invariably absolute time wasters.

I know what you mean, but in their defence, this is a major production by a very large production company not a "make it then try to sell it" fly by night production Co, I even had to sign a non-disclosure doc before they could even talk to me about the details of the production. they also have serious insurance in place.I think I personally would go with this one where I wouldn't have in the past, but its down to each individual of course.

I can tell you they need to recreate this scene as correctly as possible

Almost impossible to re-create.
Where are they going to find all those Yanks?

Reminds me of someone who supplied number of original working bandits for a tv crew
for an outside filming location. These were hired with insurance. However, also needed
large number of empty cabinets for the background. These were purchased as likely be
damaged in "explosive action scenes". Once filming completed the supplier returned to
location to collect all hire machines which were all undamaged.The purchased cabinets
were all in x2 skips within the fenced off location but nearly all were undamaged. These
were written off & Supervisor allowed him to retrieve cabinets from the skips @ no cost.
