Day 29 - Shottery Brook

The last day of shooting - and it went with a swing - the fight between Gisele and love rival Yvette.

Weeks of rain meant the ground was somewhat damp, but our actors flung themselves into it full pelt.

Coombe Abbey played host to us again and provided a magnificent four-poster bedroom for our young lovers. This was a beautiful scene handled very sensitively by the cast and crew.

Extra romantic scenes were shot in the grounds of the Abbey, which doubles as a Loire Valley chateau in Calling the Tune

The afternoon session involved baby Elizabeth and the intervention of Resistance fighter, Lucien

Day 27 - Coombe Abbey

We are closing in on the last few scenes. Today we said goodbye to the villain of the piece, splendidly played by Greg Hobbs. Shoots won't be the same without him. Stunning prosthetics by Sue Kent !

Thanks again to Coombe Abbey for their excellent hospitality

A Few Pickup Shots

We double checked to make sure we hadn't left any sticks of dynamite on the bridge. Imagine the reaction of the first dog walkers of the day!

Day 26 Stratford Greenway

The morning shoot was easy - just very wet under foot But shooting at night adds another level of stress - especially when it's cold too. It's so easy to lose equipment, props - and even actors and crew in the darkness. But we came through. Lynne quickly dealt with the graffiti spoiling our shots under the arches and Sue took off Sion's leg (he got better).

We had added production value with Rick's Citroen Traction Avant and John's BMW style motorcycle combination.

To cap it all, Lee and Adi on pyrotechnics did us proud in difficult, windy, conditions. Great team effort from cast and crew.

Great shots by Niki, as always Nicola Young Photography

Day 25 Near Hitchin

Many thanks to Will and Gemma for hosting this shoot, where we captured scenes of joy, tension, arrest and death

A very wet day, but real production value added

Great shots, as always, by Niki www.nicolayoungphotography.co.uk

Day 24 Shottery

Bastille Day - 14 July 1938 in the grounds of the chateau. Minor aristocrat Martin Chabrier, whose family lost a fortune in the Russian Revolution of 1917, sees off the local, well-loved, Communist Mayor, Joseph - much to the shock of the villagers. Many thanks to all our background artists, who made it a very special day in sweltering September heat of 30c+

Of particular note were the excellent performances by the children and Barney the dog, who understood and acted upon every word of direction.

Crew and equipment were on the point of melting but struggled on to complete the scene

Working closely with our partners Wartime Productions we grabbed some excellent footage of planes and battles, with explosions by our very own Lee Craven.

Day 21 - Billesley

The tiny church of All Saints, Billesley, one of the claimants to be the church where William Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, became a Loire Valley church for the day, with French bunting, flowers and a Citroen Traction Avant wedding car, thanks to Rick Evans.

The bride, Charlotte Wallis, looked stunning in a genuine 1940 wedding dress and hair styled by Janine Wheeler - thank you !

Here are some of Nicola Young's wonderful shots of the day www.nicolayoungphotography.co.uk

Day 20 - Alveston

Conditions were less than ideal with heavy rain most of the day, but it added to the grit and determination of our actors and the pathos of the surrender scene. Here are some of Nicola Young's excellent shots from the day

Day 19 Moreton Morrell

A remote barn surrounded by sheep (mostly very quiet) at Moreton Morrell provided the location for our cell of Communist Resistants. 

We added Tom O'Connor and Artie Dobson to the cast. Top quality performances from them and Kate Sandison and Jem Heynes

Day 18 - Severn Valley Railway

This was a fabulous day filming at Arley Railway Station on the Severn Valley Railway. What a great bunch of volunteers and and super helpful Station master. Thanks Ian and everyone at SVR. Please contribute to the Survival Fund of SVR if you can. Things are not easy for steam railways at present.

This is the rather spectacular arrival of the bad guy, Wagner, played by Greg Hobbs, who is welcomed by his henchman Gerhard, Jason Havard

The station was transformed in a matter of minutes from being covered in Coronation bunting to being a 1940s French station under German occupation - thanks Sue !

Thanks again to Coombe Abbey for facilitating this shoot.

The star of the day was Mike Crawshaw's 1944 Matchless motorcycle - thanks Mike ! That's not to take anything away from the cast and crew who worked within the Abbey's timescales and work patterns as a hotel and secured all the footage we needed - under pressure

Day 14 - Alveston

Thanks again to Andy Gallon for providing such a magnificent location to shoot the French Resistance radio scenes 

The average life expectancy of a Resistance radio operator during the war was only about two months. It was a very risky operation carried out by brave volunteers

Day 13 Alveston

Many thanks to Andy Gallon for providing such an excellent location.

This is a particularly brutal scene involving an SS raid on a French farmhouse. Thanks to Nicola Young for excellent BTS stills

- and thanks to the Stratford Herald for their two-page spread in their Focus colour magazine (below)

Day 12 KES Grammar School, Stratford-upon-Avon

Huge thanks to the grammar school, which provided a location for our 1980 scene in a music school. Special thanks to David Troughton, who went to extra lengths to ensure we had a quiet place to record.

We shot two scenes which will top and tail the film. Thanks to all our background artists, who brought their own instruments and music.

 

Day 11 - Brogan's Irish Bar, Warwick

Thanks to Stefan at Brogan's Irish Bar for great support on a long day's shoot on Monday 28 November 2022.

Lots more production value added in this beautifully preserved old iron works shop just off Warwick Square
