Theatre of Fear & Valley of The Witch

Two low budget features I worked on last year. It was such a great experience for me working on both of these projects with a great director and a fantastic crew.

I can't share any photos yet but here is a link to an interview with the director for both films:

The Body (promo)

The Body promo is about a Plague doctor in 1665. We shot this in a 17hr all night shoot in a lovely old church in Powys. Unfortunately the church didn't have any power or form of heating, so it was pretty cold, but the Red Epic worked really well in the candle light : ) In preparation I visited the London museums with the co-producer, and storyboard artist, Whitney Branning, researched on-line, contacted candle makers to find out what candles would have looked like in the 17th C and raided several charity shops and prop houses. Pictures below....

'Daniels' - Feature Test Shoot, production design

I was asked if I would be interested in doing the Production Design for a teaser/test shoot for a feature called 'Daniels', for which I would have to create a drug den/makeshift kitchen. 

We shot it last weekend....see below for before and after images of the location :)

St Milligans Wharf, Second Block

Yesterday we wrapped :) Now it all comes down to the edit. I had such a great time working on this pilot, big shout out to Matt Brown, a amazing director, Keefa Chan, an incredibly talented DP and Whitney Branning, a great 1st and awesome art department helper :)

After several trips to London we found a suitable location. To get the right look I had to CAD up a scale drawing of the office and boardroom and then plan what we were going to hire, in terms of furniture, as the items available on location were not suitable. I also had to bear in mind that two of the main walls, in the office, were orange, which I over came by adding orange items around the room. Below are some images of the locations before and after.
