The tragic death of actor and fitness guru, Greg Plitt has compelled me to write. Let me first offer my sincerest condolences to his family, friends and co-workers. Mr. Plitt was filming on railroad tracks in Los Angeles when he was killed recently.
Filmmaking is inherently dangerous, but it doesn't have to be. The problem is less about the actual dangers and more about a mindset. When I teach my students at USC, I always talk to them about "The Snow Globe Effect" and "Cinematic Immunity."
