Is 'cut' a word said by a director or other movie people or is it a word symbolizing a sound?

The initials C.B. - do they stand for a name?
If so, a real person? Male/female? Actor/actress?
A famous one?

Do all the "booms" have the same origin? Do all the "splashes"?

Is a war movie being made? If so, is it a real one? A well-known one?

The initials C.B. - do they stand for a name?
If so, a real person? Male/female? Actor/actress?
A famous one? The title is largely irrelevant to the puzzle. It's the punchline to a well-known joke about director CB De Mille.

Do all the "booms" have the same origin? No. Do all the "splashes"? Yes.

Is a war movie being made? Yes. If so, is it a real one? Yes. A well-known one? Yes.

Let us then divide it like that:

Boom1! Splash1! Boom2! Splash2! Boom3! ... Cut!

Did Boom 1,2,3 go wrong? Did Splash 1,2?

Are all "Boom"s and "Splash"es sounds? Or are any of them spoken? Is Boom3 the microphone boom entering the picture? And someone calls it out, which leads to filming being cut? Do the first two booms cause the splashes?

So the moment when it went wrong was:
before Boom 1?2?3? After Boom 3? Before Splash 1? 2?

The FA - they were not planned? They were planned but not by the director?

Is this a scene when actors/extras are shot and fall into water, then? Are Splash 1 and 2 caused by Actor 1 and 2, respectively? And Actor 3 fails to fall into water which makes the director end the scene?

If so, was there something relevant preventing Actor 3 from falling? Or did something fall instead of him?

Was the life of any of the actors in danger? Were any of them injured? Killed?

Does actor 3 hear the boom that is supposed to prompt him to fall into the water? If not was it due to a hearing defect ? other noises? Was the scene reshot and put into the movie ? Or given it's complexity was it left on the cutting room floor?

If it were not for the mistake, would all the three boom/splash series be used for the film? Or would just one of them be selected?

Is there a defined number of the boom/splashes?
Relevant?

Does the actor always fall from the same height? Relevant?

Is he shot at? Or do the explosions have a different cause (e.g. grenades)?

Does Boom 3 damage anything relevant?

Is there a defined number of the boom/splashes? Yes.
Relevant? Not really, it could be two or four. Three is the standard for this kind of story, though.

Does the actor always fall from the same height? Yes. Relevant? Yes.

Is he shot at? No. Or do the explosions have a different cause (e.g. grenades)? Yes, but not grenades.

Does Boom 3 damage anything relevant? Yes.

Do all the boom/splash series follow in a row (I mean are they filmed in one take without cutting)?

Could they be stopped anytime (e.g.after Boom 1), or are all the booms triggered at the beginning and can't be stopped?

Is it relevant who calls the word "cut"?

Are the explosions caused by real/fake war material? If so, bombs? mines? (we have already excluded grenades and shots, correct)?

Is it relevant to know which war was the movie about? The location?

Does the actor fall into water? If so, is it sea? lake? river? pond? swimming pool?

Does the actor fall, stand up, and immediately fall again? Does he stand on something relevant?

Is the time between the boom and the respective splash relevant? Is the time between each boom/splash series?

So they are filming a scene when a ship is hit and the Actor falls overboard, correct? All goes well twice, but for the third time the shot fails because it is a fake one/a blank, and the Actor remains standing there, looking at the Director.

Correct?

So they are filming a scene when a ship is hit and the Actor falls overboard, correct? Yes. All goes well twice Yes, EXCEPT, but for the third time the shot fails because it is a fake one/a blank No., and the Actor remains standing there, looking at the Director. Yes.

Correct? Partly.

Does the third shot miss? Does it hit something it's not supposed to?

Do Shot 1 and Shot 2 actually hit something? Does Shot 3?

Does something relevant happen during the Boom2/Splash2 series?

Does something relevant happen during the Boom2/Splash2 series? Yes, the same as during Boom1/Splash1.

Of course, camera shots. I can see the side effects of jurpling are already taking their toll on me.

Do the two previous booms gradually damage something?

I was asking whether all the booms and splashes were planned by the director, and you cautioned me of a possible FA. Was that because the booms and splashes planned by the director were not the same booms and splashes which actually happened?

If so, was the one unplanned Boom3/Splash 3?

Is any of the booms/splashes just said?

So the Actor/the Director/someone else says "Boom" in Boom 1 and 2, while there is no real explosion, right?

Does whoever say it as a signal for the actor to fall into the water?

Does the scene look something like this, then:

A war movie is being made. They need a shot of the Actor falling into water after a warship is hit with a bomb. They do not need the bomb for the take, just the part when the Actor falls into water.

The Director says "Boom" (in the sense of "Action") and the Actor falls into water. Twice. For the third time, a prop bomb goes off when it shouldn't have. The Actor, surprised, does not fall into the water this time, looks puzzled at the Director, who looks puzzled at him for a while, then calls "Cut" and ends the scene.

Correct?

So let's see what we have wrong.

Do they need the bomb for the take?

When the Director says Boom (eg in Boom 1), is it the only Boom or is there also the sound of the explosion? Was the explosion filmed separately?

Are they filming boom1 and boom2 as well? Or are they just rehearsing the scene? In the hope that when they do it "live", everything will go smoothly?
Is the fake bomb: misplaced? Overpowered? Can the structure the actor is standing on be called a platform? Is it not strong enough for the blast? Is the fake bomb meant to produce: a blast of air? Light? Noise? Smoke? Debris? Is something damaged in addition to the platform? Does the damage reveal that it's just a movie set? Such as plywood painted to look like steel? Or something bending/breaking that wouldn't if it was made of the right material?

So they are rehearsing the scene twice. The Director says Boom 1 and Boom 2, and the Actor makes Splash 1 and Splash 2.

Then they go for the "real" take. Cameras are rolling, the slate is clapped and the Director calls "Action". However, the bomb does not go off. The Actor therefore feels no need to fall into water.

Correct?

Was the actor prepared for it to go off when it did? Assume yes. Is the nature of the damage to the platform relevant? No. Is it relevant how the bomb managed to damage the platform? No. Or why everything got set up so that it did? No. Assume it was a scene where a bomb hits a ship and a sailor dives over the side to escape.

I have watched the movie tonight just because of your puzzle ;-)). Hope you liked it. There were two scenes which might fit the description in the puzzle statement.

I must confess one terrible thing. I had some work to do, so I watched the movie with one corner of my eye just to spot someone falling into water.

Now it's out, I deserve to be shot down in flames. But I promise to watch it again.


Was it the scene when a guy falls through some sort of railing (is it called gunwale)? If so, is the railing relevant?

Was he surprised with something related to technology? Something any of the crew did? said?

So he was surprised because he expected to hear a person, but didn't? Did he expect the director to yell "bang" the third time around as well?

SPOILER

*************************************************

The director of Tora Tora Tora was rehearsing a scene with an extra whose job was to leap from a sinking ship as it exploded behind him. The explosive special effect was expensive, so for the "rehearsal," the director shouted "Boom!" to represent the explosion, at which point the extra dived into the water. They did it a second time -- the director shouted "Boom!" and the extra dived again into the water. Satisfied, the director ran the cameras and the explosion went off perfectly. But the extra didn't jump. The director shouted "Cut!" and demanded, "Why didn't you jump?!?"

Replied the extra, "You didn't say 'Boom!'"

A great puzzle, Jenburdoo! I had a lot of fun with it, and I must confess that a lot of frustration, too, when I was playing around with all the booms and splashes, and could not hit the nail on the head. Thanks!
