A chronicle through the last 25 years of my career in the film industry from Who Framed Roger Rabbit to Harry Potter. Working on behind the scenes documentaries I have collated this recollection of what really goes on during the production of some major Hollywood movies, and it's not all autographs and sunglasses. The prolific Hollywood Producer Robert Evans who headed up Paramount Studios in a period that saw the release of some of cinemas' great mainstream films such as, The Godfather, Chinatown and Marathon Man, prefaced his own account of life in movies with the following quote:
There are three sides to every story: yours… mine… and the truth. No one is lying. Memories shared serve each differently. Be it day or decade, recall still remains the one ace I've been dealt from life's deck. In the spirit that the least spared in these pages by myself, I make no apology to those chronicled. At least you have been remembered.
Well, everything you will read here is my side of the story, my best recall, a glorious quarter century watching some great, and not so great movies, being made while working on the promotional documentaries (behind the scenes) commissioned by the various film studios involved.
