Video Diary 30 - Filming Mandy's Final Journey
This should have been a fairly simple shoot on a Sunday afternoon in central Birmingham but it ended up proving somewhat difficult. The scene is set towards the end of the film where Mandy makes her way across the desolated city in an attempt to find her husband Tom.
I had chosen some locations that were generally quiet and very cinematic. As you can see from the video the weather was very varied and we felt like we'd been put through the tumble dryer by the end of it. Thankfully, we got some amazing shots and our lead actress, Lucy, gave a very moving performance. The scene will work extremely well in the final movie and the audience will have no idea of how tricky it was to shoot.
