Is that the main culmination of your movie? If not, then who cares where the remote is located. You are distracting yourself from the plot with silly details that no one will even notice.
Move on. Keep working on the script. It's a short movie and you're working on it for years already...

I read it as wondering where the on-truck, remote-from-the-ladder controls are, as opposed from any controls on the ladder or man bucket are. Such controls are often on a side panel and duplicated somewhere inside the cab. Occasionally they're on a detachable box connected to the truck by an umbilical, so the operator can stand back to see what s/he's doing.

And no, I don't know what color the buttons are or what sequence they need to be pressed in.

Oh okay thanks. I suppose I could just make up where they are located, just wanted to know . Thanks. When you say duplicated somewhere inside the cab, what do you mean by 'duplicated' in this context?

Sorry I just didn't know what you mean by duplicated. Are you saying there's two of them?

Was I doing something bad on here? All I asked was where the remote control was located for a script, I didn't think it was a big deal or anything.

Maybe the truck is being controlled by an alien craft hidden in the tail of a comet?

Well I don't see what is so ridiculous about it. In the fire apparatus magazine article I listed, it says that newer models now have remote controls to control the ladder. So I just wanted to know where you would find the remote control since the article doesn't say, and I couldn't find any site that tells you, or anyone else that knows. Why is it so ridiculous, when I got it from an article on newer models?

No comprende duplicated? Cloned. Copied. Or....
Seriously? You think you're going to write/direct/produce/whatever a movie and you don't understand the word duplicate?


Give it up. It is never going to happen.

I understand the word, but it I did not know what the person was referring too. Was the user saying the remote control has a duplicate? What has the duplicate?
