Hitch came to me and said, ‘Cary, in the next scene I would like you to take a sip from the glass of water on the table next to you before you speak your lines.’
“I could hear a gasp from the crew that surrounded the set. The sound man came over to me and implored, ‘Cary, please don’t make a slurping sound because it will be magnified on the sound track and ruin the scene. Also, be careful to set the glass gently on the table without a sound.’ The lighting technician told me, ‘Cary, please hold your arm at this angle when you pick up the glass so that we don’t get a shadow.’
still, he makes it look so effortless.
