It’s the final week of making in The Weston Studio at mac. We feel we have a range of useful shots in the bag…  the sequencing of them is tricky – the right variety and relationship between images come into to play. A lot of them will be culled. Last week we were quite illustrative in the way we set up the images and now want to create some looser atmospheric pictures. This has involved a massive make… as we are creating a miniature city of tower blocks…

A quick visit to Birmingham’s premier drive-thru cardboard company resulted in 25 cardboard boxes ready to be whittled, an army of makers would have been handy at this point – but still, two days later and we’ve got a pretty atmospheric city – just waiting to be populated by 3mm high people and illuminated by fairy lights – we hope to start shooting this afternoon.
