‘Whatever After’ Film Stills – Part 1

‘Whatever After’ Film Stills – Part 1

Hello! I’t been a little while since I’ve updated here. I’ve been involved in a really exciting project over the past month or two as a film stills photographer and I’m happy to be able to share with you the very first part – so here goes. In September I spent 7 days working on set of the TV pilot filming ‘Whatever After’ which is a ‘A series of dark, witty and subversive fairy tales, re-imagined as allegories for the world today.’ The scripts are honestly brilliant, who knows where this project will end up?

I was there as film stills photographer, something which I am so keen to do more of now. It combines my love for theatre and documentary in one. I also generally helped out on set and stepped into a couple of roles too, including a magpie and a destitue woman (very glamorous!). I’m sure there are going to be quite a few blog posts on this coming out as I’m allowed to release more images and information, but for now I’m excited to share a bit of what I’ve been up to and some of the beautiful things I got to experience and photograph.

Throughout the week I made so many amazing new friends who I already miss. It reminded me of working in theatre – everyone working hard to come together and make something amazing and sharing the experience.

The hardest thing about the week was dealing with a new schedule (5am starts!) long days and how that would then effect my anxiety and energy levels. If anyone is interested, I may write a blog post about my experiences of anxiety on a film set and the little ways that worked for me to make the experience amazing.

But, for now, here’s a little sneak peak.

For now, thank you for reading and following my blog. I’ll be back soon! Please feel free to say hello.

Have a great day,

Filming for National Poetry Day

Over the last few weeks I’ve had the pleasure of coming along to some filming sessions of a creation by Jack Jewers to do some film stills photography and assisting. It’s the first time I’ve been on a film set as oppose to a photography one, and I have to say I completely fell in love with the whole thing and can’t wait to do more in the future.

In two short days (one day in front of the camera, and one day helping out behind and taking stills) I learned a lot and met some amazing people. I love love love how they worked together to bring a concept to life. There were times in set where there was so much smoke I felt like I was in Jurassic Park or at the very least the Upside Down from Stranger Things. When the final project is released to the public I will update this post and probably add it to my instagram too <3
