Back To the Feature

I've been to Aberystwyth to shoot a feature in 3 weeks and survived to tell the tale.  Y Llyfrgell (BFI/BBC Films/Soda Pictures/S4C/Ffilm Cymru Wales) wrapped yesterday and it was perhaps the most challenging shoot of my life but intensely rewarding.  A lot of this is down to Euros Lyn who directed the National Library of Wales set thriller about two twins out to avenge the death of their mother.  His experience, storytelling ability and total confidence in craft and performance were inspiring and pushed me to reach new levels in my own work.  At the centre of the film was absolute head spinner of a performance by Catrin Stewart who played both twins, and played the physically gruelling parts with subtle emotional sensitivity.

And of course a big shout out to my team, without whom there is no chance I would have made it out alive.  Big thanks Sam Ebrahim Riley on focus, Luke Jones 2nd AC, Llion Gethin trainee, Rogan Brown grip, Tim Jordan gaffer, Ben Manwaring best boy and Antonis Tsiakos spark.  Love you guys!!!
