What is Your Movie Production Blindspot?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

There is a lot of production that goes into a movie’s final product, but some times there can be some things that can get overlooked when watching said final product.

So, the question I ask today is: What is your movie production blindspot?

For me, it’s the score. Unless the music is something truly iconic and grabs your attention like Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones or Home Alone, I really don’t pay attention. Especially to the background music. I’ve seen some raw footage and it’s noticeable when it isn’t there but it’s just something that I seem to take for granted for some reason.

Weird question, but this popped into my head a while ago so I thought I’d ask it anyway.

So what about you, screenagers? What is your movie production blindspot?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
