Just checking in to write an update in relation to the short film, i’m currently producing ‘Switch’.
Filming is ongoing, having cast the roles, and written the script. For quite a small scale production, I’ve been amazed with the reception, and peoples attitudes towards helping out.
The film is around 80% finished in terms of filming, while I await all footage to begin a proper edit. Switch is being filmed in various locations all around Norfolk, and because of this, I am able to work with such great Norfolk talent, as in actors and crew members. This is something I wouldn’t normally get to do, so it’s a welcome change.
This weekend just gone, we filmed at actor ‘Paul Goldsmiths’ house, of which, I am truly grateful for his hospitality, and patience. The weekend was a packed weekend full of nonstop filming, as I had to drive towards Wyndham (30/40 minutes drive away), for both the Saturday & Sunday. The Sunday we filmed the most ‘Tarantino-esque’ scenes in the film, which took place in a remote field out in the middle of nowhere. For this Max Rudd & Gary Crowe were excellent, in their roles. Very convincing, and I had chills just watching them bring my characters to life. In fact, I’ve been so excited by the entire production. Watching these actors bring characters I’ve written, to life, it’s a feeling I don’t think you actually fully get over. it’s great.
Filming continues next week and on into May, with next Tuesday, filming scenes at ‘The Red Herring’ pub, in Great Yarmouth. For this, I am so grateful to Darren, pub landlord for allowing the use of such a wonderful location. Also to Marie Setchell for suggesting it.
Infact, my thanks to all those involved, in the production, they’ve all been so wonderful, and we’re not even finished yet. It’s a pleasure to work with such like minded people. Really is.
The film has also been submitted onto IMDB, which you can view more details here.
