Myself and a small but dedicated crew shot KEEPING SOPHIE, my second short film, on the 22nd of April 2014. The shoot was much fun, and we got everything we needed despite tube strikes, flash floods and smoke alarms.
David Cann and Alina Dheere Babaletsos delivered moving and menacing performances. Matt Glen led his stalwart camera team through a frantic shooting schedule to deliver beautiful images. And our art directors Harriet Goddard and Rachel Ellis from Ohlovelystudio created two sinister sets within our location on Hackney Road.
Following a lengthy period of post-production in the capable hands of Tommy Boulding (editor), Joel Neale (sound designer) and Liam Hill (colour grader), KEEPING SOPHIE is now complete and ready to go to festivals. A massive thanks to everyone who helped out.
