It’s 3:20am. We shot the sequence in Joe’s bedroom, which took longer than I would have liked due to much fiddling about to try and get some contrast into the lighting. Ray and Kat, the latter in her first scene of the shoot, gave great performances and Ian once again made an excellent job of the set dressing.
Ray’s ability to find a Back to the Future quote for every occasion continues to astound. As I tightened the nut securing my tripod head to the jib, he came out with: “Five eighths? Don’t you mean three quarters?”
In total contrast to the rest of the shoot so far, we had to contend with sweaty temperatures as the lamps heated up my tiny flat into which we were all squashed. Unfortunately, due to the persistent rain we were unable to film the exterior scenes, which will now have to be picked up later in the schedule. Meanwhile we’ve set up the High Town scenes we dropped last week for this Thursday.
