This is a scene from the promotional movie that was shot this past weekend. Mark and I were kept on the go all day Sunday moving from one location in Wychwood Forest to another, and from one scene to another. Each scene was shot 3-4 time or more in some cases. We never realised that acting was so tiring! Although the shoot took all day, the main promo will be cut to only 30 seconds! I can't wait to see the finished product.
Due to other shoots on that same day in different location, our film crew were without a jib, reflectors and orange crates! The scene you see here was shot with my own $50.00 camera and a tripod to match. The film crew were using a $5000,00 camera with tripod to match!!! It was tiring, but it was a lot of fun, best time I have had for a long time. If laughing is as good as they say it is for your health, then I should be good for a long time to come after this weekend.
Several people did not turn up for this shoot, which was a pitty, it also meant that there was a lack of equipment as well as actors. Mark is actually using a real sword as against my blunted practice sword, so we had to be carefull!
