Thinking Outside The Box While Confined In One
Another day of shooting on Broken England went ahead last weekend with some continued scenes from the previous weeks ones in the shop, but also some new locations. The main new location was in fact a car. As a filmmaker car scenes are always interesting, mostly since you’re very restricted to what you can achieve. If you have specialised car rigs then that does make the options and shooting slightly easier, but you are still stuck on a few different angles. Without one of those rigs we relied on a handheld rig and the DOP getting in some very bizarre positions to get the angle right. Good thing I’m pretty skinny!
It’s difficult but it does give you some big challenges to try and solve creatively. They always say that restrictions make you become more creative and maybe that is the case, it definitely made me think differently with my angles the day.
The shoots seem to be going well, shooting around schedules and it’s been interesting working with a totally different crew and with different styles and ideas. I’ll leave you with a still I took from day one a few weeks back. Potential poster?
