Film credits that roll down the screen at movie’s end don’t get enough credit. The number of folks required for a two-hour product is astounding, suggesting it takes a lot of people working together, even if the result is just so-so.
I particularly enjoy reading the actors’ roles that are too minor for a real name but have a part in it:
“Redcoat #2,” “Humming Woman,” “Child in Stroller.”
The music credits are fun, too, because jazz, rock ‘n roll, swing and classic musicians probably didn’t know they’d be getting together to be a new thing, the film score.
I wonder why film producers put this cool info at the end and roll the credits so fast.
Art imitates life I guess.
Will and I always stay to the end of the credits. Directors like to put things in them that you wouldn’t expect. 🙂 Yes there are so many people that work on a film and I think its required that all of their names are listed, even if you are the coffee runner. Besides people like to see their name in lights. I think the reason why the move so fast is because they have to keep a film to a certain time frame.
I like reading movie credits when the film is good or when the movie is filmed in our hometown.
