DAVID RICH - MANIAC, DISHONEST, FOAMING-AT-THE-MOUTH PRODUCER

Seen this goon at close quarters on his production of MARGERINE WARS.  Roaring like a loon displaying his total ignorance of film-making.  Roaming round the location talking during takes, yelling at anyone and everyone.  Wondering why this or that happened when it was only normal filmmaking practise. A Jew insisting his star wore a 'yamalka' on top of an afro unaware that some Jews were offended by it.  On top of which his star looked ridiculous.

But more seriously he fiddles expenses, overnight accomodation accounts, meals, normal SAG breaks.  He routinely rips off the crew if he can get away with it.  Canned the director, it's said, the day after the shoot - of course, once the film had been shot.  Didn't have the courage of his convictions and sack him when he decided he was no good.  It's also rumored he cut his fee.  Well, thats normal for him.

An ignorant buffon, a dangerously unstable enemy, an idotic Shylock will rip you off as soon as look at you.  Whatever you do, if you do business, BE VERY CAREFUL. Dont do backend; dont do deferred.  get your money up front and nail down the deal or he will rip you off.  Michigan Film Commission ought to watch out: they are dealing with a crooked fixer will rip THEM off....

#1 General Comment

Only good experiences with David Rich

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

I am working closely with David on another project.  My experiences have been nothing but positive and professional.  I feel the negative comments lacked specific information which would explain David's alleged wrong-doings.  Therefore, I urge those who read the negative comments to take them with a grain of salt, as my experience with David has been exactly opposite.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Consider the Source of this comment

AUTHOR: mwcrew - (United States of America)

This is written by the ex director Rob Walker, who was fired for cause.  I know this as I have been in contact with the producers of this movie.  He was fired at the end of the shoot because he continually undermined the executive producer and was unprofessional as, he laughingly called himself, a director.  He constantly changed the script from the original, failed to get establishing shots, film making 101, failed to notice boom mikes in many scenes, and appeared confused several times on the shoot.  Even when problems were brought to his attention he ignored them.

It is interesting that he referred to the executive producer as "A Jew"  which seems anti-semtic.  Mr. Rich was indeed new to film making but I never knew him to treat anyone badly.  He insured that everyone was feed well, there was a medic on the set at all times, and everyone was paid in full on the last day of the shoot.  The only person ever to complain was the fired director, go figure.  The tenor of this comment can be explained as the director wrote this just a few days after he was fired.  The truth be know, Mr. Walker threatened several times to walk if he did not get his way and on an 18 day shoot replacing him, as bad as he was, was not possible due to restrictions on time and money. 

If anyone wants to know the truth they can contact any of the crew listed on IMDB and ask them how Mr. Rich treated them or how Mr. Walker ran the set.  It was Mr. Walker's first attempt at a feature film with major stars and an American comedy.  I believe that he was really not ready for this level of film making as his genre is horror.

I would have responded to this sooner but we just learned of this, this weekend and someone had to defend Mr. Rich.  He came to Michigan and gave many of us jobs and paid us fairly.  We all would work for Mr. Rich again but not for Mr. Walker so that says it all.
