We finished filming short film “Mr. Invisible” on Sunday night after what was a hugely enjoyable, but also very hectic, 4 day shoot. Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew though we got everything we wanted and more. It was a great privilege to work with Mr. Julian Glover, who despite being in his mid-70s was as as enthusiastic as anyone.
The shoot took place in both Aylesbury and London, which posed different sorts of challenges. A special highlight was the large set-piece on the final day in Bedford Square, which included coordinating 20 extras, and a dramatic action scene involving a police motorbike and a car.
Shooting the bulk of the film in a small town definitely worked in our favour. Special thanks to Comet Aylesbury, the Aylesbury Library and Tilbury’s Butchers for letting us use their spaces.
Mr. Invisible is a co-production between Big Bright Lights and Tin Monkey. It was directed by BBL’s Greg Ash, produced by Kieran O’Brien and written by Richard Sainsbury. It is expected to be completed by mid-2012 when it will then be exhibited at various film festivals around the world. Keep up to date with news via our facebook page.
