Oxford: Lewis filming – series 8 part 2

Written by Nasir Hamid on April 29th, 2014

Some behind the scenes shots while series 8 of Lewis was being filmed on Broad Street, Oxford last month. It wasn’t easy for the crew to film on a main street during lunch time and they certainly drew a crowd of curious onlookers. I particularly liked how they had transformed the empty Blackwell’s music shop on the corner of Turl Street into a coffee shop called Fix. The shot in the bottom left is of the props guy’s moving in some of the furniture.

[Tech info:] Zenit TTL, 58/2 Helios lens, loaded with Agfa Vista 200 (Poundland) film, processed and scanned by ASDA in Swindon. (Thanks Simon).

    Hi Nasir, good work with the Zenit and Vista Poundland film 🙂
    My very first SLR weas a Zenit E with M42 mount and a Helios lens and that lens was a total terror for lens flare if I got a bit too much sky in the picture. It used to drive me spare but I couldnt afford a Pentax multi coated lens to replace it with :-/ But it was very sharp lens if you kept the sky out of the shot 🙂
    I remember the absolute joy of seeing the results of my very first ever roll of colour slide film in it and that was Kodachrome 25. Unbelievable sharpness and textures :-)I enjoy
    your site immensely 🙂
