BLOOPERS! – Planet of the Spiders


If you`re not that keen on the old eight-legs then maybe this blooperpost isn`t for you!

First off, there`s the eternal problem of studio lights getting reflected in shot. This isn`t the first one of these either…

And finally, some invisible wire that`s quite visible…
