We have now completed our first weeks filming and it’s been very exciting to say the least.
Firstly the arrival of a foot of snow didn’t deter us from manning our thermals and heading out to continue shooting – we’re a strong hardy lot!
The logistics of getting the rushes to and from the island have been slightly problematic but this has been sorted now and we have seen the first day’s rushes and they look amazing. Rain has managed to shoot some beautiful stuff despite the weather conditions and lack of equipment.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd AD’s were not enjoying themselves, were not getting on with the crew, or the extreme conditions that the Island has to offer so decided to leave us at the last minute – we managed to all pull through, with everyone mucking in and luckily a lovely guy called Will McDonagh came up to 1st AD at last minute and we are back on track now, whizzing through the shots in now time… well kind of!
The Spice of Life catering team have been truly wonderful, filling our stomachs with tasty food every day and generally keeping our spirits high not only with there gorgeous grub but also with there amazing dancing at the party we had on Friday night. It’s amazing what can happen when you take of load of ipods to the country!
Brek and the Dave Shaw from Diving Services at Pinewood enjoyed a dip in the Irish seas this week both posing as stunt doubles for Nikki and Callum. Both very brave solders indeed given the temperature. This was for the most adventurous of all the set ups being shot up in Scotland, the boat/storm scene. The rest will be filled in the safety of Dave’s tank later on in December.
Also we must mention a huge thank you to Mull Islander Ronnie whom has been wonderful everyday helping out with all the extra bits and pieces we don’t seem to have hands for. Everyone on Mull has been truly great and made us feel very welcome.
