    This is true - they have one size for his standing/walking sequences, and one for his running, etc stuff.


    Every since they went to TF his suits have gotten less "classic" and more extreme

    It's not just for every "type" of scene. It's also for each specific scene, and can cause continuity editors conniptions.

    For example, if you have a scene in which Bond is cut on his left side, then for every scene that occurs after that, if he is wearing that suit, it must be cut in the exact same way, same or growing blood stains, on the left side. Since films are not shot chronologically, and sometimes, in the editing room, sequences are put together differently from how they were originally conceived, sometimes entire scenes need to be reshot or very artfully edited.

    I have some friends who work in the non-sexy jobs in movie making, and from what they tell me about the different aspects, it's like putting together a jigsaw puzzle that doesn't always fit together, and there is a lot of Hollywood magic to put together even a pretty crap movie. Have you ever seen the live footage of action sequences. Unless the stuntmen are really amazing and acrobatic martial artists, gymnasts, or some other exceptional athlete, in their own right, the raw scenes are often pretty funny to watch, and look a bit like that movie you made with your friends when you were ten, with the ninja suddenly disappearing from under his cloak after being cut down. Yes, a lot of my early filmmaking was influenced by Star Wars: A New Hope.

    Thus the adage: There is no perfect fit. If something fits perfectly when you are standing, it will not fit perfectly when you are sitting, or walking, or whatever. You (well, I) am not a mannequin. You get a good fit, and work from there.

    Bruce Lee wore a reasonably slim, cropped mod suit for his Green Hornet audition.

    And thats why its so much fun to make movies and videos! Half the time right after someone finishes a good line read they can completely break character and do something stupid, but cut that out and voila! Magic

    Oh yeah, I know. If I had actual time, I would love to learn the ins and outs of doing it. But... no, I just know how to wardrobe. Stores do love wardrobe though. It's a gigantic sale, right out the door. Picky, but big.

    Sorry to bring this up again but what was the reason for getting rid of thumbs comments the second time? They save so much space and cut down on spam, especially in waywt threads where most of the posts are fits and quick compliments.

    The 2 click process for EVERY like resulted in a across the board 40% decrease in use of the feature. A drop of the cliff, is the way things looked. It was one of the easiest calls to make. If it's ever implemented in way that requires only one click, we might try the feature out again.

    if you get an error when calculating the shipping cost, click the "Edit" button for the "Ship to" address and then re-save the address.

    The CM side of the board is also just a bunch of people in suits fighting.

    Thumb comments would allow for dank memes, which are essential to any forum. I'm appalled that having to click twice would discourage 40% of posters from thumbing. I imagine the only way to bypass that would be to have a textbox pop up when a poster hovers over the thumb button, so that they can thumb with one click or provide a comment also with one click; seems doable, but I've no knowledge of web design.

    I would agree with that. As it is though, that is unlikely to happen.

    Uh, I think it's pretty obvious that the styleforum version of that robot would tell its followers Hedi invented jodhpurs, double riders, and skinny pants / the 2030 last is shit / and go down a half size for barrie
