The shoot took place in Dulwich Woods in SE London. We arrived at 5am and setup base camp to the adjoining scouts camping site. We used an Arri Amira and shot in log-c to help us create a look that was reminiscent of the Star Wars universe. Plus with the help of some clever props – a large off white camping canvas, similar to the ones used in the film The Force Awakens; a few smoke machines and the unexpected rain just added to the drama!
All three actors were fantastic on the day, their chemistry and professionalism helped us to achieve all of the shots on time and to budget. In post production we added the final finishing touches, such as a realistic campsite fire and the shadow of Kylo Ren, which we animated by hand. All the grading and editing was done in-house.
