If you've ever spent more than eight consecutive hours in an edit bay, you understand that it's quite easy to lose your grasp on reality. And when that happens, sometimes the only way to cut the tension and spring yourself back to life is to drop an easter egg into what you're working on. Maybe it's inserting a random shot into a scene, maybe it's an unnecessary cut, it all depends on what the editor has available to work with. 99% of the time, those jokes get left on the cutting room floor by those humorless, good-for-nothing producers. But every so often, one of those easter eggs manages to sneak its way into the final product.
This example is the first in an ongoing series that puts a spotlight on those moments, a feature that we're going to call Scrambled Eggs. Feel free to play along at home; if you spot a Scrambled Egg that you'd like us to feature, please send an email our way and we'll credit you here on the site. So, with that in mind, please enjoy our first installment.
