Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 2

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. Day 1 of filming ended on Holywell Street in rapidly falling light thanks to the clocks changing back an hour the previous day. This is something I had anticipated and loaded a roll of Kodak Portra 400 accordingly. Day 2 started on New College Lane in very contrasty sunlight.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. Teddy Hall was the location for this scene on a very chilly and overcast morning. Usually I wouldn’t push my film to ISO 1600 under daylight conditions but I wanted to see how HP5 would handle the contrast as well as having the flexibility to have a deeper depth of field than I would usually.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 1 in Oxford, August 2018. A lot of work goes into recreating a scene from the 1960’s and that includes dressing SA’s (supporting artists) in vintage outfits, sorting out hair and make-up, accessories/props etc even though many of them will be hardly noticeable on screen.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 1 in Oxford, August 2018. Magdalen College was the location for the end of the first day of filming in Oxford and the next morning started off in Oriel Square at a very busy intersection with Merton Street. The crew did an excellent job of keeping the scene clear of modern day vehicles throughout the morning.

Some behind the scenes shots from day one of three in Oxford filming Endeavour 6, FILM 1. I’m continuing to use mostly colour film for a change but I did manage to use a couple of b&w rolls as well during the three days of filming. I can’t share very much at the moment to avoid spoilers but more pictures will follow after broadcast.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 2 on New College Lane in Oxford. This was an extremely hot day and the tourists were out in force but you can’t really tell that from these pictures. I’ve picked out a selection of spoiler-free images, more will follow after broadcast.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 2 in North Oxford. No spoilers here. If you’d like to see the difference between Kodak Gold 200 film and Fuji Superia 200 film compare these shots with the previous blog post which was shot on Gold 200. Same lens used for both films.

Behind the scenes during filming of FILM 2 of Endeavour series 6 in North Oxford. Mainly crew pictures from this roll, no spoilers! Other pictures will follow after broadcast some time in 2019. For a change I have been using colour film instead of b&w but I may change things up a bit – I’m still undecided about that. On this occasion I dusted off one of my least used lenses – a 50/2.0 Summicron lens which originally came with my M2 but when I tested it with b&w film I found the contrast to be lacking for my taste. It does however produce very nice results on colour film so I decided to use it on this occasion.

Oxford: recent filming

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

There has been quite a flurry of filming activity on the streets of Oxford recently and I’ve photographed some of it. The scorching temperatures have slowed down the amount of photography I’ve been doing lately but I braved the heat when a certain crew rolled into town to film the next instalments of Oxford’s best loved detective. No spoilers.
