Becky Hilton's Scarlet

I worked as "Best Boy" on Rebecca Hilton's latest film Scarlet, I also worked on the set build for two days to build three walls ready to shoot in for another two days.

Getting the chance to work with both the lighting technician and the cinematographer was a great experience, bouncing between the two to get the best out of each shot was excellent as they are both roles I have a great passion for. Lighting in a set gave us much more control over how to creatively use the light, especially as the genre of the film is film noir, shadows and silhouettes were very important.

It was a great shoot to be a part of and a good chance to get a glimpse at how much of a step up the third year is. The shoot had trials and tribulations that the crew worked together to overcome, it was definitely an eye opener and a chance to work in the department I am most interested in.
