The Lyrics

It's really hard to make a film on a low budget. This guy probably isn't going about it the right way, however...
Okay, camera
Keep on filmin', buddy
We'll fix all this in post
(Can't afford cuts)
(This film is a big mess)

We can fix this
Just keep filmin' buddy

Zoom in, now zoom out
We'll cut that flub out
Hold up, hold up
Where the hell is the prop guy now?

Ease in, now ease out
Pan up, now pan down
Don't cut, don't cut
We'll fix this in editing, now

Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'

Now I know they'll be lovin' this film right here
I.M.D.B. knows we've worked for years
Just ignore the strings, they're really in the air
CG guys take care of that, don't stare
One, two, three more scenes for this set
Then we all can get off and pick up our cheques
Let's film that run again, son
Don't fuck it up
We can't afford cuts
So don't eat the film up
(Metaphor, bud)

Zoom in, now zoom out
Don't laugh or you're out
Recast, recast
It will all make some sense, somehow

Ease in, now ease out
Hoist up, now hoist down
Hold up, hold up
Don't make them hit the ceiling now

Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'

HEY all of you background extras (what?)
Wanna keep being extras? (yeah)
Well, stop being so loud ('kay)
In the way and you'll be fired (oh)
It's a difficult scene right here (uh-huh)
And we're tryin' to get it right (yah)
But our budget is quite minimal
And, uh, we are short on time (oh)

Oh great, now the set
Is falling to bits
I've got some duct tape
Always useful for a quick fix
Quickly write some
Lines about an earthquake
That should make
The damage make sense, new take!
(Did I say "cut"?)

Zoom in, now zoom out
Now duck your head down
Look out, look out!
It's the evil monster-thing, wow!

Don't smirk or laugh now
Just move or drop down
Come on, come on
We'll replace the prop in post, now

Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'

Lights, camera and action
Don't wanna waste time on any cuts
All you actors, all you stuntmen
Let's get on with it, I'm late for a meeting
Stop flubbing, quit corpsing
We still haven't gotten to the forklift
Hey, I'm the director
And I wanna get this film done today

Zoom in, now zoom out
Don't fall asleep now
Wake up, wake up
Or I'm gonna cut your pay now

Ease in, now ease out
Don't smirk, or I'll shout
Come on, come on
This megaphone ain't for show, now

Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'

Zoom in, now zoom out
Stagehands get out now
Piss off, piss off
Cause you're messing up the shot now

Ease in, now ease out
Pan up, then pan down
Wrap up, wrap
Then we can all get some chow

Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Keep filmin', filmin', filmin', filmin'
Maybe this film will join the ouvre of "So Bad, It's Good" films like The Room or Birdemic, who knows?

Good parody! Sounds like the set of a Roger Corman movie.

Think Blair Witch Project potential :)

For microbudget, check out the Sci-fi oddity "Hellacious Acres". It had a shoestring budget as the director wasalso the producer, screenwriter, did the score, the SPFX, AND was one of 5 characters!!!

I liked the line about working in the earthquake :D

This is what it would probably sound like if Fred Durst tried to make a movie. Or did he? I eagerly anticipate what Matthias, our resident film-director-of-the-future, has to say about your parody.

Wow! As our resident film director-of-the-future I can't believe I missed out on seeing this fantastic parody. I loved all of the "we'll fix it in post" lines because I heard that line way too many times on the set of many movies. Can you believe that one director wanted to create CGI wind? That's right. She said we'll add wind in post! How the hell does that even happen?!?!?! I loved this and can relate to this one way too much. Can't believe I never wrote a parody like this and after seeing your parody it makes me wanted to. I think you've inspired me to write a song about all of my crazy times on the set. This one was amazing! I think I found my Limp Bizkit winner and this is just the first song I read! Also love the OS which makes this even better! Also, also love your references to "The Room" and "Birdemic" (wish you added those to the actual song but still the fact that you mentioned them is awesome!)

Do movie makers still use film? Which makes me think that someday after the great electromagnetic pulse the only movies left will be the ones on film...anyway, fun depiction of just another day on the set.

I'm sure he did Agri, but if he made a sex tape based on his naked on stage picture--it probably wouldn't go over very well . . . just saying. . .Good job as a write, it was fun. . .

(Artistry) Fun to say the least. So much fun, you should make a film about it.
