Yesterday we shot our first day at the Warner studios in Gold Coast, at Stage 5. We started out with quite a complicated zero-1/6th-1-g -gravity sequence, which did take a bit to be thought through and shot so that it actually works. Luckily we have a great stunt coordinator – Darko Tuskan – with us here, and he’d been rehearsing with both stunts and actors the scenes beforehand. Still, when there are people hanging on harnesses – it’s never easy, not even with the most experienced people.
The studio is a wonderful place to work. Everything is so peaceful, close and it’s nice and air-conditioned inside there. We have erected a huge greenscreen surrounding most of the studio, and it’s making me a bit sick – everywhere I look is just plain green. It’s like being greenscreenblinded.
