Alex sitting in our set
A very talented photographer Alex Holland has agreed to work as our DOP on the astronomers Sun and came to visit the set last week. He spent a good few hours working out what lens's we will need to achieve the shots we have planned in our animatic. This is no easy task! In theory our shots work but it is a totally different kettle of fish trying to get the camera to do what we want it to do. Luckily Alex is pretty good with his camera and I'm sure with his expertise we will achieve exactly what we are looking for with this film.
Alex took a few pics of Henry with his beast of a camera, thought I'd pop em on the blog cuz they look ACE!
Don't worry, these are not Henry's eyes, just experimenting with bead sizes.
Here Si is directing Al - For the record, Si is NOT posing...
