How do you film a movie set largely in the Vatican when the Holy See itself has banned you from shooting within its walls? If you are the producers of Angels and Demons, the prequel to the church-baiting worldwide blockbuster The Da Vinci Code, you send in cameramen posing as tourists to take more than 250,000 photographs and shoot hours of video footage.Angels and Demons director Ron Howard hinted in an interview in December on US TV show Shootout that his team had been forced into unusual measures by the ban. "We didn't shoot at the Vatican officially. But cameras can be made really small," he said.
Isn't there still an application of copyright law for using an image for profit?
BTW, Ron . . . you know Lupe, that woman who filled in last week for Maria, your usual cleaning lady? You know, cameras can be made really small . . .
And I know the movie will suck - because the book did.
