    what's the meaning of "Production arriving in the past 10 years"

    Hello,

    Does the sentence below mean production will be represented after 10 years of working on it?

    Production arriving in the past 10 years.
    In addition, I'm curious about "arriving." I think the original sentence was "Production [which is] is arriving in the past 10 years" and after reduction (or reducing, I'm not sure about the correct term) the sentence has been changed to the form of above.

    Thank you in advance,

    Well, I'm using an app which sucks in showing subtitles. It sometimes doesn't show the whole subtitles. When I was writing this topic it showed only that part but now I see after a director of the film saying the sentence above, after a small pause he adds some thing else. So the entire the sentence would be:

    Production arriving in the past 10 years was actually very good.
    So I think the meaning of the sentence should be: "after 10 years which we worked on our film, the conclusion of our work was good."

    But does "arriving" has been reduced?

    Is the audio file available? I'd like to have a listen to it.
    (I'm not really sure if the sentence you quoted is grammatically correct.)

    You can download it by searching the name of the below:

    G0T.S05E00.A.Day.in.the.Life.HDTV

    Got is the abbreviation of "game of the thrones."

    After downloading in the part of 23:45 minutes, you can see the sentence that I quoted above.

    Re: what's the meaning of "Production arriving in the past 10 years"

    It sounds like "Production arriving in the past ten days was actually very good" to me.
    However, I think the underlined "was" is actually "is", because he then says "There's a lot of people rolling up. There's probably four hundred (and) fifty people working there in the camera ..." in the present tense.

    I hope it helps.


    (Edit) Well, if you wish to use a relative pronoun, it would probably be "Production which has arrived in the past ten days is actually very good"

    Well, I adore your cautiousness. I multiple times wrote 10 years but you just after one time watching the film understood that it was "days."

    But about "was," he says "was" not "is."

    In addition I still have problem with the structure of "arriving."

    "Production which/that has arrived in the past ten days is actually very good." or probably "Production which/that arrived in the past ten days was actually very good."

    I'm sorry, Lumia, but this is all I can guess.
    Please allow me to leave your questions to native speakers.

    I would take it to mean what has been coming out of the production department in the last ten days.

    Re: what's the meaning of "Production arriving in the past 10 years"

    That's what I thought until I listened to it just now.

    The man definitely says "Production arriving in the past ten days was actually very good. There was a lot of people rolling up. There's probably 450 people working now under camera".

    I think he referring to the the fact the Production Team and all it's equipment arriving in Spain within ten days was a very good thing. (i.e. it was on time). As he says the first sentence we see part of the production team rolling in a big piece of filming equipment on wheels. As he says the second sentence we are shown images of the feet of quite a few extras arriving in sandals and long robes, and it then cuts back to various shots of the production team.

    I think the reason you think it is odd, is because it is! Firstly the man saying it sounds to me like a very, very fluent learner, but not a first language speaker. Secondly, it sounds as if he is speaking in the abbreviated jargon which filming seems to use. (I have just found out his name is Peter Welter Soler, and he is German. I was able to tell mainly because of the way he says "definitely" in the clip two seconds before this one. He says it as "def-lee". However, his intonation is very good. I thought he was American at first).

    This is what I think the sentence would be if he were to say it in full:

    "[The fact that the] Production [crew/team were all] arriving in the past ten days was actually very good.".

    Even then, as you detected, "arriving" does not seem completely natural, in my opinion.

    I would be more likely to use:

    "[The fact that the] Production [crew/team all] arrived within the past ten days was actually very good.".

    or

    "[The fact that the] Production [crew/team were all able to] arrive within the past ten days was actually very good.".

    In informal speech, I'd probably even say "get here" instead of "arrive".
