Scheduled for tonight was the training sequence between Grim Reapers old and new. At 3:30pm the rain looked like it was settled in for the night so we decided to go with a back-up location, a warehouse, rather than an exterior location at Westons Cider. I’d not seen the warehouse before and when I arrived I knew immediately it wasn’t right for the scene. The rain was starting to ease off but by then it was too late to set up Westons again so we cancelled the night’s shooting.
We headed back to the house where the actors are staying and had a bit of a production meeting, plus Ray and Simon got to look at the new scythe which has been made for us by the blacksmith whose shop we filmed at last week. It’s extremely sweet.
It’s now 12:11am and there hasn’t been a single drop of rain since the call time. God damn weather. But we did get to watch Back to the Future Part II.
