So, it’s been a while since we wrapped equipment, backed up our hard drives and ticked the box labelled “principal photography”.
After a couple of false starts (hey these things happen in indie filmmaking land), post-production work on THE STAY begins in earnest this week with editing at Pinewood Studios followed by VFX and score/sound mixing.

It’s a wrap!
We had a full and busy day ahead of us when we turned over at 8am this morning, lots of tricky stuff to shoot and a couple of pick-ups to bag before day’s end.
We covered Scenes 8, 10, 16, 2, 18, 20, 22, 24 & 13. We also shot pick-ups for Scene 12.

Will post more pics soon!
