              I pay Google to not watch commercials, and then YOU make me watch commercials even though I've paid not to watch commercials on their platform. I see a problem with that, don't you think? You're already earning a thousand times more money from me compared to the rest of the non-paying monkeys.

                      It’s not up to the location manager to hire staff. That’s the on the UPM or Unit Production Manager.

                        Considering the recent Saudi schenanigans, I think a logistics of flying WWE would be interesting (could cite incidents such as the plane ride from hell among other logistical issues)

                                                                                            As always you have a great production quality and a logical presentation of a topic.

                                                                                            Just have to say for the record though, that when describing people listed as "SFX Technicians", you mis labeled them as Sound Effects technicians when they are in fact Special Effects technicians dealing with real world visual effects on set.

                                                                                            The only sound personnel on set are production sound mixers and boom operators tasked with recording dialogue on set.
