What the hell is a Jigawatt? It’s a company, that’s watt. I mean what. Yes, Jigawatt Pictures Ltd. is now a real company incorporated in England & Wales under the Companies Act of – appropriately enough – 1985. (“I’m a time traveller from the future. I came here in a time machine that I invented and tomorrow I have to go back to the year 1985.” Slap.)
Now if I can just open a bank account for the company, work on the Swordsman can finally begin…
It was indeed a lot of fun. We got one day off – one day more than on Beyond Rec – the equipment was incredibly heavy and the weather was consistently very hot, but I had a great time.
Amongst the highlights were filming a foot chase in Times Square, shooting at Tavern on the Green (thinking “Oh my God, they shot Ghostbusters here!”) and grappling with an underwater camera housing to film Jaws-esque angles of Aimee’s drowning scene. Once again it was terrible to have to come home. Even the kettle felt wrong when I made my coffee this morning. I mean, this afternoon. (Still sleeping off the jetlag.)
