keberoxu BS: Film: The Legend of Barney Thomson (28) RE: BS: Film: The Legend of Barney Thomson 15 Dec 20


Re: Mudcatter pfr's recent viewing of the film
in the thread title.

Two factors, and you identified one of them:
a low budget.

The other thing there was little of, was time.

When the financing finally, finally came through to produce the film, Robert Carlyle, who says that this possible project had been stalking him through his agents/management for years,

had predictably gone on to secure employment elsewhere.
In fact, he had been cast as Rumplestiltskin in
ABC-TV's Once Upon A Time and this weekly television series
was well into its multi-season run.

Therefore, he had to direct, play the title role, and more or less
produce Barney Thomson
in the summer months in between shoots for the US television series.

Having completed shooting the film,
Robert Carlyle worked out an arrangement with his bosses at Once Upon A Time.
He returned to the shooting location -- actually not in the States
but in Vancouver, British Columbia,
where his family has been relocated
and his children continued going to school --
with all the film footage in his bags.

And at the studio near Vancouver, he would proceed
from his trailer to one of two working areas:
to the set or location for shooting the TV series;
or,
to a specially set-up editing area,
where he would spend his spare hours editing Barney Thomson.

He HATES HATES HATES editing.
(So he stated in numerous interviews.)
