The last filming session went well last week and finished ahead of schedule. It was sad to say good bye to an excellent cast. Now the fun begins with the Editing. We've still got some bits and pieces to sort out, music, voice overs, etc but hopefully we'll have it all wrapped up for Christmas and a premiere in the new year.
Day 7 of filming complete. A lovely 9 hours to finish the majority of the filming. Some great performances by the cast. A huge thank you to all cast and crew for helping us stick to our shooting schedule and also to all the mums for getting their children where they should be. Just one more evening to complete the shoot and then the editing begins.
Day 6 of filming completed. A small cast and crew today due to 90% of it being either voice over or Music video so no sound recording required. Great work by Samuel Broadway and Jacob von Heimendahl. It's not easy getting kids to concentrate for 6 hours a day, especially having a producer and director shouting instructions at you all day long. Well done boys! Just one more day of intense filming to go and that will be all but one scene finished!
What a difference a day makes... Lovely sunshine for a mornings filming. Some excellent scenes filmed at Cineworld (thanks to them) this morning and then Hail Weston Park. Both Leah and Isabel have now finished their filming with us so we're sad to them go. Just two more full days of filming and then and evening, except the producers has messed up and needs to re-arrange that one!
Our plans were ruined by the rain, so had to do some hasty re-arranging and location shifting. We still had a successful day's shooting though and the film is gradually taking shape.
People always ask how the shoot went and the honest answer is I dont really know until we start editing, and then it is too late!
Let's hope the weather stays dry for the next two days, so we can finish our outside shoots!
