So having been involved with its development to a certain extent through my work with Dogs of Annwn, I began working on ‘The Lighthouse’ just before Christmas as Production Manager. The shoot was chilly and had the odd fraught moment, but everyone had a good time and have been blown away by the footage. The DoP, Alex Metcalfe, and director Chris Crow really pulled out the stops to turn what is essentially a one-location thriller into something so cinematic.
I’m currently helping to manage the post production process as there are an awful lot of VFX shots to complete for a film of this budget (the green screen pictured is gradually turning into a tempestuous seascape!). With backing from BFI, BBC, Ffilm Cymru Wales, S4C and Soda Pictures the hope is that we’ll really get ‘The Lighthouse’ out there later on this year. I’m also developing some other cool projects with Dogs of Annwn that I’m not able to discuss just yet, but I will post more as things progress!
