English term or phrase:filmmaking metaphors are often close at hand.
When Joel Silver talks about Auldbrass, the Frank Lloyd Wright house in Yemassee, S.C., which he bought in 1986 and has been restoring for the last 15 years, filmmaking metaphors are often close at hand.
Silver, Hollywood's top-grossing producer, likens the work on Auldbrass to one of his big-budget action pictures (''Lethal Weapon,'' ''Die Hard,'' ''The Matrix'' and their many offspring). Like a movie, a restoration begins with an idea set to paper, and after ''a process fraught with negotiation, problems, compromise and tremendous budget and cost issues, becomes something that lasts forever.
