Welcome to The Uninvisible. This page is dedicated to the hapless crew of 24 who can't seem to keep themselves or their equipment out of the shot.

Because 24 is filmed with multiple cameras at once, it can often be difficult for the cameramen to avoid catching each other. And often times they fail. I'm not sure if there's a place for this in the encyclopedia proper, but for now, this is the repository of sighted goofs. Keep in mind this page is only for visible crew and equipment and no other types of mistakes. Feel free to add any you've spotted yourself or drop a line on the Talk page.
