Movie Crew Avoid Arrest After Police Spot Fake Cop Killing
Movie director Adam Rifkin's experimental new movie almost landed his cast and crew in jail, after police mistook a cop-shooting scene for a real life killing. Look, which follows the lives of a group of Californians, was shot using just surveillance cameras. During one scene actor Rhys Coiro beats up a cop on a deserted highway and shoots him dead, all watched overhead by an unsuspecting police helicopter. Rifkin explains, "There was no visible evidence that a movie was being shot because the camera crew were all hiding in the cars. "All the cops could see was another cop being beaten up and executed on the side of a lonely road. I was convinced were going to jail." Rifkin diffused the situation by calling 911 to warn police chiefs.
