The day before the shoot. The atmosphere is filled with nerves. We have the last meeting to decide the final details for the shoot.
In the meeting we decide the role each person will fulfill during the shoot. We try to organize every detail for the next day and to have a clear schedule. In the morning, first thing is to meet Karim, the owner of the location. At the same time, the technical equipment should arrive and the technicians start setting up. There will also be a meeting with the director, the DoP, CGI specialists and the first AD while the second AD is getting the frosted glass ready.
At 11.30 everything should be ready to start shooting.
We decide which actors will participate in each shot, their role, which directions they are going to take, how many of them there are in each shot.
We check the list of things we need to take to the shoot. All the props we have been collecting like hats, coats, handbags…and even a crutch…
We have the contracts, the make up, the menu, video camara to shoot ‘the making off‘ and the camera to take pictures during the shooting.
Everything seems to be ready. We send an email to all the cast and the technical crew with the call sheet and all the information needed: address, contacts, map, time…and we wish everybody good luck.
We phone all the actors to make sure they are coming the following day and that they received all the information.
And…even if we are still nervous, we leave the office feeling that everything is under control. Next day we will meet at 7 am at Lavender Hill to start with the real action. The show is about to begin…
