After the initial gridlock we encountered trying to leave London, filming actually went very well.
On Saturday, whilst traveling back to London, I had sent and arranged for contributor consent and location agreement forms to be signed before we began filming.
It’s incredible what actually goes in to filming. I sometimes forget that it’s not a case of turning up at a location, sticking the camera in someone’s face, and then leaving.
The worst part about this filming was not having another room to conduct the interviews in. When originally told about this filming, we were led to believe we had a separate VIP area but on arriving, the separate room was unavailable. This meant some very crafty microphone work had to be done.
I’m praying that the audio won’t be as bad as I thought. I’ll have to put the transcript up though for multiplatform accessibility reasons.
Tomorrow I shall begin editing together the footage shot on Thursday night, which seems like an age ago!
Sorry I have no pictures of my expedition, but I shall promise to take more in future
