Pick-up (filmmaking)


Pick-up (filmmaking)

A pick-up is a term used in filmmaking to refer to small, relatively minor shots filmed or recorded after the fact to augment footage already shot. When entire scenes are redone, it is referred to as a re-shoot.

In the DVD commentary for "The Goonies", Sean Astin reveals that a pick-up (of the boys looking at the map in Mikey's kitchen) was filmed six months after the original shoot.
