Bought a new camera which arrived this morning in all its technological loveliness. James and I used it this afternoon to interview each other for the “making of” archives. As normally happens when I get on the wrong side of a camera, I rambled like a backpacker on a Scottish moor.
We’d been planning to shoot a teaser trailer for the Courtyard screening of The Beacon next month, with a few brief shots of a dark figure with a scythe, and a tiny bit of a sword fight, but now we’ve decided to produce a two or three minute featurette instead, which could include the same material, but also using the interviews and other footage of us working on the script.
Tomorrow we go in search of a scythe for the teaser shoot, and hopefully on Sunday I can get some shots of a backlit Simon Wyndham doing some sword moves.
