A new series of A Touch of Cloth, another continuity joke. Last season made reference to continuity through the character 'Connor Tinuity', this time they went for a more classic approach.
Some time ago I made a blog post about a continuity joke in Young Frankenstein. Mel Brooks would do something similar a few years later in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. The film is Mel Brooks' parody of the Robin Hood legend. It came out in 1993, 2 years after the Kevin Costner movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves so it spoofs a lot of elements from that film. One of these is a continuity error.
In the season 4 episode "The Problem Solvers" Liz is talking about actors.
I'm starting a series of interviews with different people working in film. I'll be talking to people in the UK and in Belgium. The first one is Jonas Govaerts. We met on the set of his tv series "Monster!", which was about a crazy director making bad movies in his back yard. Aside from that Jonas plays guitar in the band The Hickey Underworld.
Young Frankenstein is Mel Brooks' horror parody starring Gene Wilder as a descendant of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. Among all the great jokes making fun of the genre there's one involving continuity.
I do everything I can to avoid watching trailers. I won't look them up on purpose and when a youtube video starts with a trailer I try to skip it as soon as possible. In cinemas I look at my phone and listen to music while the trailers are playing.
There was a continuity joke in the second episode of Charlie Brookers crime drama parody A Touch of Cloth.
The job I do has many names: Script Supervisor, Continuity, Continuity Supervisor,... In Flanders the job is mostly referred to as just 'script' among crew and then there's the archaic 'script girl'. One production wanted to have some fun and tried to credit me as 'script boy'.
The fourth episode of the 25th series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks (broadcast on 24 October 2011) had the magician Dynamo in Noels team. Dynamo performed some illusions on screen, but aside from the very visual tricks, he did one that wasn't even mentioned during the episode.
