Just called SAG (Screen Actors Guild) to get the ball rolling on making the deals with actors all legal and proper. They’ve sent me a form I have to fill in full of questions I have no answers to – but at the bottom is a question that’s scared the living daylights out of me: ‘Do you intend to include any of the following in your production? Minors, Animals, Singers, Puppets, Stunts, Nudity.’
Oh no – the first flaw in my otherwise perfect plan has been revealed. What was I thinking? It appears I’m about to make a film without any puppets in it.
