Local filmmaker on prop guns: 'It's all about believably'

Franki Cambeletta, a partner and founder at Shift Films, joined Marc Cox to explain exactly why movie makers try to utilize the most accurate props on sets.

"It's all about believability," said Cambeletta. "When you watch lower-budget films, independent films where people don't have high budgets, they don't have armorers, they don't have prop guns. They're using fake, very fake guns."

Simply put, "you want it to look as real as possible," said Cambeletta.
