'The Making of Sherlock Holmes'
Report by Clem Giuseppetti, J Social, Remove
The first Sunday of Term saw the Lakeside room in Mansion transformed into a film set ready for another sequence of Sherlock, the film written and directed by Clem Giuseppetti. The set was by far the most complicated one we had done so far, taking 3 hours to create, and therefore we were hugely grateful for all the help of the staff, from booking the room to supplying all the amazing props and costumes!
The two half scenes that were filmed were rather tricky, as we had a few animals in the cast. So thank you very much to Trish Reeves (Mrs Hudson) for taking part with her dog and to the Biology department for supplying their Boa-constrictor.
The technical camera, lighting and sound side to the filming on Sunday also took a step up in quality, as we put to use our new state-of-the-art equipment.
Filming continued through the afternoon and early evening but eventually after 7 hours of hard work, the estimated 3 minutes of film time was completed. There are several more scenes to film, mostly based in Oxford, but we aim to finish Sherlock by the end of the summer term, when there will hopefully be a Premiere.
