Filming of the Gym and Pool scene

Posted by Phil On April - 20 - 2011

Ok I’ve completed the Gym and Pool scene for “One Step” Sasha’s play about an amputee.

We shot this in a few hours at the Trouville Hotel in Bournemouth.

My aim was to have lots of moving tracking shots, but the mirrors meant I kept getting us in the shots, so it ended up rather more static than I  intended.




I tried out some new techniques for getting moving shots over water. I think they worked quite well.  Mike lit it and we shot on a Pentax DSLR and a Panasonic. It was very hot in the gym, but we didn’t have any condensation problems.

Actors were Sasha, Sean and Lewis, who seemed to act out enjoying themselves very well. Smile

This got over 1700 hits in the first day on Youtube.
