Bowfinger

Question: Was the freeway scene in Bowfinger done with CGI or stunt drivers?

Chosen answer: It's done with CGI. Such freeway scenes are impossible to do with stunt drivers as you would need very complicated choreography to make it look believable.

Mistakes

Daisy is an out of work jobbing actress but she has a credit card that will take the cost of developing and printing the stock used to shoot a feature film in 35mm! Since they are watching colour rushes with synchronised sound on film (not cheaper video) they are not doing this on the cheap, either. Minimum cost, for a 90 minute feature, allowing four takes of each shot (which we see them do) - £41,000.00 or around US$85,000.00. That's some credit card. Anyone got the name of the issuing company?

Trivia

The character of Daisy (played by Heather Graham) is a thinly veiled jab at actress Anne Heche. Like Daisy, Anne is from Ohio, and, also like Daisy, Anne was briefly romantically involved with Steve Martin. Daisy's last lines about being involved with "the most powerful lesbian in Hollywood" are a reference to Anne's relationship at the time with Ellen DeGeneres.
