The End of the Shoot is in Sight

Posted by on 31 Oct 2014 in Production | Comments Off

Sometimes it seemed we had been shooting forever and still had so much left to do, but as of yesterday we have wrapped on five of our actors, and the end is definitely looming. There is still quite a bit of exciting stuff to come – more Epping Forest antics and adventures of the four legged kind, but we’re taking this opportunity to say a very fond, though sad, farewell to Nick Cornwall, Suzanne Emerson, Alan Hay, Grace Parry and Richard Zeman. Until season two anyway…

Days Off – What are those?

Posted by on 11 Oct 2014 in Production | Comments Off

Strange day today with our DoP Neil Oseman off on another job for the weekend. Only me and Michelle in the office this afternoon.  Going through our non existing budget and putting a teaser trailer together.  With no one here it kind of feels like it’s all over even though we have loads still to do. It’s our Epping Forest shoot this coming week including a night shoot on Monday. Still looking into getting a generator to help power our 2.5K HMI.

Well I can’t do that tonight so I guess I should venture out of the Ren bubble for just a moment, go home and watch TV like normal people do.

Thank You for the Gifts!

Posted by on 8 Sep 2014 in Pre Production | Comments Off

It’s all go here at the Ren Studio, as the clock ticks down to our first day of shooting on the 15th of September. But we had to take a minute out to say thank you to some of the people who have given us gifts and loans. This is just a sample – will post more when we get a chance! And for those who are thinking of sending us prezzies, we still need basics like food and drink for the shoot (chocolate makes crew happy), and cleaning products, toilet paper, and so forth to keep the studio clean. Not to mention there are still houses left to sponsor!

hans gifts Hans Goosen, one of our incredibly talented volunteer artists and makers, gifted us with this selection of authentic pottery, baskets, and fabric, left. And that’s not all – he also sponsored one of our houses. Thanks Hans!
nicole withpurple dress This hand-embroidered purple shift has been loaned to us by another of our amazing volunteers, Nicole Kipar, who also gifted us an entire rack full of other stunning costumes. Thanks Nicole!
plum money Volunteer thatchers extraordinaire Allison Reid and son Matt donated 27 pounds they raised from selling plums. Thanks Guys!
pretty house And Brian Gyrion of Chicago sponsored our very first house, Homewood, right. Doesn’t it look amazing? Thanks Brian!
