Day 1 of filming is officially wrapped! Cast Rachel Teate, Simon Weir, James Payton and Ellen Patterson, with a host of supporting artist, descended on The Hub at Pacific Quay to film all of our PITS office scenes for episode 5, as Norris Fletcher (Simon Weir) briefed his team on their search for a missing PITS agent, as Maya decided to take matters in to her own hands, despite Grace’s interventions.
After lunch we headed to The Tron Theatre and the makeup team turned our PITS agents into werewolves for a scene involving Maya, Grace and werewolf bartender, David Brannigan (played by Harry Potter actor James Payton). Lots of fun seeing a drunk Maya turning rogue and shooting up the bar!
Filming finished at 5.45pm and cast and crew returned home! We’ll be releasing photos soon from the day but for now we’re focussed on prepping for day 2 and welcoming Doctor Who star Sophie Aldred to our Cops and Monsters family on the 24th of July.
We’ll soon be making plans to run a crowdfunding campaign to shoot episode 6 by Laura Anderson in August so we can shoot it in September before the show goes on a Winter hiatus, before continuing in Easter 2017…
Fear not though as we’ll be releasing at least 1 new “story” episode from Volume 1, working on minisodes with new characters, comic strips, radio dramas and more! Watch this space!
