Oxford: Endeavour 4, episode 2 – part 5

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Behind the scenes during filming in Radcliffe Square, Oxford of Endeavour series 4 episode 2. This was the first day of filming in Oxford for this episode on what started out as an overcast morning but turned out to be a very hot and sunny day. The tourists were out in force and the crew did an amazing job of crowd control with minimal staff. I must give a shout out to the props and art departments for the attention to detail that went into the table that was laid out with the petition (most of which was never seen on screen). It was so convincing that I saw some tourists trying to sign up! While all of this was going on the set at New College was being prepared for the dance routine that was due to be filmed the following day (last shot). More to come.

Oxford: Endeavour 4, episode 3 – part 2

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

These behind the scenes shots of Endeavour are from the first day of filming in Oxford for Episode 3 of Series 4. This was the first scene they filmed in the morning of Dr Max DeBryn cycling around Radcliffe Square but it didn’t make the final edit. I’ve cycled over those cobble stones and it’s not comfortable at all.

Oxford: finals exam celebrations, 2014 – part 2

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Now that winter is here and the weather is getting colder and wetter I think it’s the perfect time to start posting my coverage of the trashing that happened here in Oxford during the summer when it was a lot warmer and sunnier. This was such a lot of fun to photograph but also quite difficult, not only because I had to avoid getting in the firing line of the various liquids that were flying around but also because I kept getting accused of being from the Daily Mail after they published an article about binge drinking and used pictures of Oxford students getting trashed to illustrate it – the two things couldn’t be further apart. It’s hardly surprising really because if the Daily Mail are good at one thing it’s publishing lies – just ask George Clooney.

Oxford: Jason & Hugo at Clements & Church

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Some shots from my Zenit which was loaded with film from Poundland. I wanted to see how the film handled very contrasty light, I also wanted to see how bad the light leak could get when using the camera in full sun. While this film certainly isn’t on par with Kodak Portra it can certainly deliver some nice results. Jason and Hugo were accommodating as ever.

Oxford: Lewis filming – series 8 part 3

Monday, May 12th, 2014

Some more shots from a scene of Lewis that was being filmed on Broad Street, Oxford recently. It was a cold and windy day which is why the two main actor’s are dressed in warm coats during the rehearsal.

Oxford: Lewis filming – series 8 part 2

Tuesday, 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.
