If I were Amber and I had money lying around to pay lawyers, I might press charges.
But because I am Becca and not Amber, with no money lying around, I looked it up anyway to see if they had an opening for an editor - hey, a girl's gotta work! ( even if I knew the chances were they might call me bastard or bonehead becca if my cv didn't suit their needs).
When I googled 'Bastard Amber' to do more company research, the first thing to pop up was a link to DICTIONARY.COM, where I then learned that the term is actually film production lingo that I had never heard of before!
Turns out Bastard Amber Productions are not the bastards I thought they were.
'Bastard Amber' is the color of a gelatin filter.
Productions place these filters over their lighting so that it casts an amber-pinkish tone.
It looks amazing with flesh tones, and photographers and the theatre use it all the time so their subjects don't look pale or corpsy blue.

The censored version is called a 'bamber,' for underage kids, priests and NBC.
I am so glad I learned about 'bastard amber' the easy I-googled-it way - instead of inserting my foot into my mouth by telling the BA company I thought they were mean spirited. That's what you would have called a bonehead becca.
