It’s the second day at the Blue Bell railway and it’s below zero.. brr. My leather Converse are just not cutting it today, my feet have gone numb. The SFX people are still making rain for each take. Mr McGregor is soaked to the bone for this scene. I’m sure he’ll turn blue by the end of it. I love watching Ewan and Renee acting on the video split as they shoot. It’s sort of like watching the movie unfold on Tele with no crew or equipment in view. Only problem is you’re left gagging to see the next scene. Dailies of today’s work will look great on the big screen.
Just hoofed off to the nearest town to get the camera crew & Chris piping hot Starbucks coffees. They absolutely loved it; on arctic days real coffee is liquid gold. Well I’m lapping up the over heated trailer as I write this blog. My eyelids are getting heavy I could so easily nod off… and this is where the bracing cold weather comes in handy, to jolt you into a vigilant state after a big cooked lunch.
