Last night was the best night of the shoot so far. I’d been really worried about it because it involved shooting a foot chase necessitating three total relights in different sections of our location, Westons Cider brewery, followed by a sequence on the walkways above some vats featuring a creature that would be entirely generated in post-production. The crew however were totally on form and allowed us to shoot the chase very swiftly. The brewery looked fantastic on camera and it was quite fun getting Ray and AJ to run about and jump over stuff.
After lunch Jonny and Ray and I got up on the walkways and started to rehearse the sequence with the non-existent creature. Naturally it was quite confusing but eventually we got it blocked out and were subsequently able to get all the coverage quite quickly.
Right now Edd is putting the finishing touches on my living room’s new paint job in readiness for the scenes in Joe’s flat tonight. We’ve just spent half an hour going round women’s clothing stores, looking extremely dodgy, looking for a white sweater to complete Heather’s costume. We also tried to find a copy of the South Park movie soundtrack but failed so now we’re watching the film again.
