Haha! If I had a nickel every time I heard locked cut… Or “it’s a lift”
Ha! Is it a picture lift? A script lift? A camera lift? An animation lift? A grade lift?
Heaven help any producer who tells me there is a direct lift. My entire body becomes pure cynicism, often causing me to pedantically explain all the ways something could be not a pure lift.
Because it never is. The handles are different, one take is different and no one knows why, and all the timewarps are quicker.
My fav thing now is: Well, if it’s from the same take it’s still a lift, right? Even if it’s way outside the handles that we graded?
“If you want to pay me to do the VFX work on every whole take I’m happy to do that. There’s a place around the corner that rents dump trucks. I suspect you’ll need two or three to carry the cash.”
BTW @andy_dill “Locked Cut” is two words.
a few things:
- this is my re-creation of a meme I swore I had on my phone but can’t find, so I can’t take any creative credit.
- I watched the scene in question (pic is not from the scene, fyi) to make sure I had the text of the line correct.
- I thought about the grammar v deference to the text and decided upon the latter.
another favorite from cg memes.
(based on a true story)
I’ll leave this here😊
The cylons were the bad guys.
They got eliminated in large quantities in every episode.
Who is dressing up as a bad guy and crying about being a victim?
Isn’t this like wearing a Nazi uniform and asking for sympathy?
Surely this is Darwinism?

I’m not sure there’s a more perfect meme.
TBH I’ve got a lot of notes on that painting too.
