1. Is it as exciting as it looks from the uninformed audience's end?
2. Flubs of the kind you're talking about, such as inauthentic props, can end up publicized on moviemistakes.com and similar sites. A viewer will say "The scene is set on Christmas Day 1937, but the model of radio shown on a shelf next to the coffee cups didn't come out until February 1938." Do the person or persons responsible follow such feedback and take it seriously?
3. Why do they roll the end credits too fast to read? We always want to see who did what, or at least what the jobs were.
Congratulations on your career advancement!
1. Movie sets can be very boring for most of the crew. The exceptions are the director and cinematographer as we are usually working non stop all day either setting up shots or actually shooting them. The rest of the crew usually only works during the set up or the shoot so they are standing by waiting most of the time. With that said, there can be some very exciting moments that the average person can't relate to and will never experience. Like being part of a shoot out and car chase through the New Orleans French Quarter, diving for a week with Dolph Lundgren, flying in a helicopter over the ocean while filming all day over a recreated WWII disaster scene with hundreds of extras in the water below you, and many other countless experiences.
2. When I try to bring up flubs and mistakes to producers or directors I usually get shut down. Most producers just want to get the movie done and don't feel minor mistakes are going to have any impact on how much money their movie makes. If it slows down production in any way they don't want to hear about it. I've learn to just stick to doing my job and will rarely speak up if I see improper weapons handling, cop tactics, poor computer handling skills, etc.
3. The films I've personally written and directed I've tried to stretch out and slow down my credits as usually I'm a little short on runtime! haha. When directing a film the expected run time is in the contract so I have to deliver a completed film including credits within a few minutes of an expected time. If it's too long you're going to have problems getting a good TV deal. After everything else is done, the credits are the final place I can buy a few seconds by speeding up the roll a few percentage.
