Let the games being!

The start of a film shoot is always a tentative affair, with a large group of people – some unknown to one another – coming together to work in a high-stress situation. Our first day involved shooting six scenes in the one location. With all crew arriving on time and in fifth gear, it was apparent from the outset that the film was in great hands.

What a cracking start

Our first scene involved Tom, Jamila, Steven, and Katie-May (yes, our Producer/First A.D.), who doubled as a receptionist (her nod to the main players during the scene is extremely natural, I might add). Everything went off without a hitch, with Shaun Pettigrew, our DOP, setting a great flow for the crew to follow.
