THE STAY at Pinewood Studios

Post-production begins – at Pinewood Studios!

Was 14 years ago (!) this month that I first visited Pinewood to discuss prosthetic FX for ‘On Edge’ with the legendary Bob Keen. How time flies…

The Stay: Day 3

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.
Lunch was pizza & pasta.
We completed the final shot at 17:20, wrapped location and headed home.
Will post more pics soon!
