Hello all you electronic people.
I thought I’d drop you all a line and let you know how we’re doing down here in sunny (!) Cornwall. Actually Joanna, our producer, told me to, but don’t let that put you off – I always like making new friends.
As you might have guessed from my exclamation above (?) – the weather is perhaps not what one might want for filming a holiday resort, but as our Cornish friends keep assuring me, its not just a holiday resort, so perhaps filming the land of sun from under thick cloud is not so ridiculous.
So far we’ve mostly been doing just scene setting – went up to a village called St Germans yesterday afternoon to take some footage of a church – turns out they’ve got a local tradition very like what our own dear druid is suggesting we perform tonight.
Lovely footage of the church and other local landmarks, courtesy of our own dear Tom, cloud or no cloud. But on to more pressing matters, working with the less pliable performers: people. Today we start our filming in earnest, and start preparing for our ceremony tonight.
Personally, though I can’t speak for the others, I’m looking forward to the whole thing… this is a lovely place, and the people are always willing to talk and share with us… and tonight! Can’t wait to have a run around in the woods – although Tom, of course, is worried about the light levels.
Low light or not, we’ll have fun, and I hope you do, too…
