How much editing is really done? How much psychology is involved? What actually happens once the HMs leave?
I do know someone actually because he came to work with me on a film not long after BB 4 or 5 ended. I had just moved here and wasn't in to it at all so didn't hound him for info. I've sent a FB msg after reading your post so hopefully he'll give us some dirt. As for editing, I think tonight's Drully argument shows how much they do when you compare the live feed vid to what they aired on the daily show. For whatever reason the editing of the daily show was slanted to try to favour Tully and they used the Frankenbite quite a bit in that exchange which I'm disappointed in because I didn't think Aussie reality shows relied on that nonsense. I'll definitely post back in here when he replies... we've stayed friends throughout the years and have worked together since so I should get an answer soon hopefuly!
That's exactly what my friend said when he replied back to me although he said he couldn't remember if it had an expiration or not. I'm actually surprised he wouldn't tell me anything at all because he's normally a very chatty/gossipy guy. Completely understandable though.Yes, all crew be it runners, camera people, editors, even Mike Goldman, all must sign a confidentiality.
I cant go into details but can say its 3 pages long and covers all the important points.
Yeah it's the same thing as film. As soon as he said he'd had to sign a CA I completely dropped it. I've never violated one no matter how tempted I've been, even when I was offered cash to talk, so I'd never expect or pressure anyone else to do it either. Back home people were sometimes a bit nonchalant but the industry is way too small in Australia to risk it. Thanks for all the info you have been able to provide us though...we totally appreciate it and respect why you can't say more than you have.[MENTION=35181]Mrs Butterface[/MENTION], I am aware that staff have been dismissed for leaking information in the past. I am not sure what Legal action SS or CH9 took against them.
But will say this. If you get fired for something like this, trust me, no company/channel will ever employ you, so I guess it's how much do you value your job.
This is a big reason why little information has not been released this year. All staff were given a massive warning with a threat of instant dismissal and pending legal action against them.
