YVONNE – volunteering on the short film shoots
I enjoyed my day as a runner for the Talkies’ commission Sunday Worship. I didn’t know what to expect so I was glad I wasn’t alone, Surayya was runner co-ordinator and sent me the schedules for the day. The film crew had driven up from Bristol really early so Surayya organised bacon sarnies for them. I also met Sarah who took photos for Talkies throughout the day. Our first exotic location was a bus stop on the North Circular Road. Then we moved round the corner where I asked a few members of the public if they would cross the road so they didn’t disturb filming. Our last shoot was in Broomfield Park. The cameraman wanted a 360* shot of Brian Croucher as he gazed at the bandstand. This was tricky because people kept going on the bandstand and we had to keep our wits about us to keep out of shot. Between shots I got to chat to Brian. The crew were grateful for our help. I’m looking forward to watching Sunday Worship – the film I helped to make!
