Yesterday we started our two-day shoot in a location in the middle of Frankfurt, Main Tower. The location is a posh meeting room, and we hijacked it for us to represent a meeting room for all of the world’s leaders. We had a very nice bunch of people turning up as representatives, and did some great shots. We’ll be continuing in the same location today, so the story of the world leaders is not yet completely over. But I think our 1st assistant director Peter McLennan describes where we are and for what the best way:
We’ve had a bit of sickness and accidents in our crew along the way. We’ve had at least 2 stomach flus, 2 ear infections, one broken leg and a bunch of other little things, so when I started to feel extremely nauseous yesterday, I wasn’t sure what was going on. Because just before that, I had been holding a hand-held monitor and following Steadicam, which made me car-sick – an image moving differently in front of you than around you seems to do it for me very quickly.
We ended the evening with Janos and Susi and Essi up in my room drinking few glasses of rhum and talking about the shoot.
