Not much to it but it does make you think, 3 January 2005
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

Lucy has worked in the film business for over 30 years. She's worked on 56 feature films, 3 documentaries and 2 series. She currently resides in Sofia, Bulgaria with a dog, a son and a new tattoo. "Tsak tsak" is her slang for the slate that she has clapped approximately 459100 times. By doing this, her image is on over 382 hours of film, although she had never appeared in a single motion picture.

This short film consists of a load of clapper board moments before stopping to deliver more or less the text that I have written above. This doesn't make for much of a film but it is more interesting than it actually sounds – mainly because it did make me think. The film is only two minutes long and most of that is taken up with the text, however it is interesting because it made me think about all the people involved in film that never even get seen, Lucy just being one of them. Of course another way to look at it is to wonder what sort of a job it is to clap a board hundreds of thousands of times over several decades, but whichever way you go at it, it still comes out being more interesting than it sounds.

Overall, a very short short film without a great dealing happening, but an interesting tribute to all those people who make films happen but have never actually made it onto the silver screen. With this in mind it is no surprise that this film was mostly seen at festivals rather than anywhere else.
