Always inform your local police if you are filming a bank robbery scene or else you could end up dying,this production crew failed to do that.
A police officer in Crawfordville, Indiana, shot at actor Jeff Diff, who was wearing a ski mask, after 911 calls to say that a robbery was taking place at the Back Step Brewing Company.
Duff was holding a fake gun and was backing out of the building, Police ordered him to drop the gun before firing. The shot nearly missed Duff and hit the building behind him, Duff was scared and shouted “we’re filming a movie, I ain’t lying to you”
Another actor Phillip Demoret told RTV6 “The bullet went by his head. It was very close. I don’t want to think about it. If it had hit him, we’d be having a whole different conversation. Thank goodness he wasn’t.”
Also Co-Owner of Montgomery County Production Kodi Swank released a statement “There’s lesson to be learned on both sides of the spectrum from us as a low budget movie company and from the police department on their quick reaction.I’m very grateful that the police department did their job to the best of their ability with an unknown situation.”
The Crawfordville police department said “The subject did not immediately comply with the officer’s commands and raised the gun pointing it at the officer .
“Officers later determined that the firearm was a movie prop and that the subject was part of a movie being filmed at the time of the incident. Those filming the movie had not notified authorities they would be shooting in area business and on public thoroughfares.”
The actor nearly missed death he was lucky enough and from the next time do inform your local authorities if you are filming a robbery scene.
