Shower thought from last night: What would each film department choose for their super power?
Sound: Telekinesis — bye bye boom poles!
Actors: Shapeshifting — why work out for the role when you can simply morph your muscles?
DoP: Weather Control — the best natural lighting all the time.
Grips: Super Strength — because duh.
Electric: Lightning — why use generators when you can BE THE POWER!
PAs: Super Speed — helpful when running all over set.
Editors: also Super Speed — for reasons.
Scripty: Cloning Self — it’s really a job for three anyway.
The Entire Art Department: Mind Reading — so they can understand exactly what the director means when s/he says “I want it to evoke feelings of majesty”.
Greens: Plant Powers — obvious
Animal Wrangler: Speak to Animals — also obvious
Producer: Turning Stuff into Gold — What “financial woes”?
1st AD: Warping Time — No more worrying about falling behind schedule.
Screenwriter: Teleportation and Time-travel — First-hand research made easy!
Director: Multilingualism — Because each department has its own language. And now the actors will finally GET what you’re asking for.
