Last night was memorable for a number of reasons. Firstly we were very fortunate to have such a magnificent back drop for our shoot both inside and out. We shot the wolf protestors for an earlier clip which went without a hitch (unless you count the rather long halt in the proceedings when the street cleaning vehicle came along).
Pyn brought Shirley Sheep to join us and she had her first role (worn by Rachel, who had to be guided in and out by the others) – telling the world that ‘Agatha is innocent!’
We then started filming in doors. The costumes looked great (especially Abi’s Dress) and we were delighted to be joined by Deborah Tracey a great new actress who is destined for great things. She took my script by the collar and made it her own; using a Ruby Wax-esque character to interview the celebrities. All was going well until one of our performers was taken very ill and an ambulance had to be called. We are pleased to report that she has made a full recovery and we got enough to make a version of the scene that we wanted.
