Martini Shot: You Never Really Know

Slow-motion panic, 'Batgirl' and the 'science' of audience research
Sponsored by

Rob Long opines on audience research, bad time slots and rules for what not to say in front of executives as a writer — which somehow leads to the curious case of Batgirl, a movie that apparently will never be seen by anyone outside of Warners Bros. For Rob, there’s no rule for that one: “What I do know is I don’t know because you never know.”

Martini Shot
When you’re filming a movie or a television show, when it’s the last shot of the day, the first assistant director will call out, “This is the Martini Shot!” I call these stories “Martini Shots” because they’re exactly the kinds of stories we tell — and lessons we learn — after we’ve wrapped for the day. - Rob Long
