Long time no post!

Apologies for the gap in bloggering! I have mostly been working on my trailer.

My first port of call was to create a call sheet for my cast and crew, Helen kindly sent me one she used whilst at the beeb. Thanks Helen! I noted down important numbers of my crew and for the UCA campus. My next task was to check I could use the area around the viaduct in Eynsford. I rang Kent County Council and was forward to the Kent Film Office - I contact I know have, which I know will prove useful in future shoots. I was soon told I required Public Liability insurance! I rang UCA admin and they were really helpful and was forwarded once more to Sevenoaks council where I was finally given a name for Home Farm in Eynsford and got permission from the farmer to film. We were set for shooting! This was a huge learning curve for me with forward planning and putting paper work together in order to film.

The Day of shooting came on the 17th April. My crew were 3 hours late and we faced a 45 min journey to Eynsford. Not a great start! but filming went really well and we experimented mixing fast paced shots, establishing shots and GV's. all in the most idyllic spot. The sun was out and overall a pretty successful days filming. Im looking to return to london for 'pick-ups' and film the remainder of the trailer, Im hoping it will inspire me for my 10 min. script.
