Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 4 – part 13

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

The Endeavour crew came to the Oxford Union to film some scenes from FILM 4 of the fifth series and these behind the scenes pictures are from a scene that involved a flour bomb being thrown. The pictures pick up from after the first take where the flour bomb missed the intended target so quite a bit of clean up was required before the second take – this is where the props guys sprung into action. The last handful of shots are from a different day when I visited the Cowley CID interior set and finished off the same roll of film. I really like the use of daylight balanced HMI lighting because it enabled me to use daylight film without any filters.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, episode 5 – part 4

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 5 episode 5 in Brasenose college, Oxford. These pictures are from the last part of a  long day where the rapidly descending sun was causing all sorts of issues with long shadows being cast where you don’t want them. We had nice light all day and I chose this particular film stock (Portra 400) because I knew it would not only cope well with the contrasty light but also the extra speed would come in handy in the shade as the light level dropped.
