What does Terrence Malick have against chairs and why doesn't he allow them on set? Due to the experience that he gained in his early days as a production assistant, location scout, location manager and most recently through his role as a production executive for Studio Babelsberg, it is fair to say that Markus Bensch knows his way around the industry. Now a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Markus has both won and been nominated for top awards due his contributions to the creative development of such projects as "Bridge of Spies", "A Hidden Life" and the much anticipated Malick film "The Last Planet." He may even know why Malick doesn't like chairs. Welcome to the back channel where the real work gets done on set, "Locations on Two!"
