This really was a long day. The difference between this one and the 4o hour day is that this time it was not long due to a technical fault. No, this time was due to weather. Our final Guest Star was delayed in arriving due to the terrible Storm Doris that swept across the UK … Continue reading Day 24 – The Longest Day, Almost
To say I am falling behind on my this blog is an understatement. The work load is increasing as more of the cast turn up (we have had Guest Star 4 and 5 already in and Guest Star 6 was due today but Doris put an end to that). The more we film in a … Continue reading Day 21 to 23 – I think?
Some of you have been asking what an average day is like for me at the moment. I don't know why you want to know, this is just a job after all. But to sate the curious (and hoping none of you were cats, as I can't have that on my conscience), I will go … Continue reading An Average Day
For the halfway re-energise a few of the crew organised a Blues night for the whole team. After that long weekend and just overall dwindling of enthusiasm, it was very much needed. It started well enough. About 60 of us headed from the studio and walked the darkening streets of Cardiff. We felt like a … Continue reading The Hangover Blues (well, not me, but for sure everyone else!)
The more astute of you may have noticed that I didn't get to update the blog for the last few days. Those who didn't notice, why the hell not? It's like you don't even care! Anyway, to be honest I can't really remember what happened on what day, so this post covers the blurry mess … Continue reading Day 16 to 19 -Where Protective Devices Went on The Attack
Today has been fairly relaxed. GS#2 was in the house for the morning for a few re-shoots and left just before noon. For the class and joy you brought you will be missed, oh and thanks for the romantic meal 😛 While sat in the office reconciling the shooting schedule we discovered we were halfway … Continue reading Day 15 – Music to my Ears…Not!
So here we are, the halfway point. That is both in terms of days and in terms of the shots we need. It is a milestone, one we quickly celebrated with a quick round of gin. It is incredible to think we are halfway done. As I try to come to terms with what that … Continue reading Halfway There – A Look Back
I have always liked how St Valentine was chosen to represent the so called day of love. One, having one day where you are meant to show love always seemed stupid to me, and two, choosing a Saint with so little known about him, apart from his horrific death, to represent love seems oddly fitting. … Continue reading Day 14 -The Day of Love
Arriving at the studio today was eerie. The majority of the cast have the day off, as we are picking up specialised shots that don't involve them. This also meant the majority of the crew were out as well. When I arrive there are normally at least ten people already hard at work. Today I … Continue reading Day 13 – A Tale of Explosions and Class
Today may have been one of the funnest days of the production, at least for me. Excitement is in the air for the arrival of GS2 tomorrow, we finally have the special effects team on set, and the crew started practising for their magic shots. The day started with the arrival of the special effects … Continue reading Day 12 -Explosive Posing
