48 hour challenge stills

Well, it was rather remiss of me to forget to mention who I worked with last week during the 48 hour challenge, so here goes…

Assistant director, boom operator and runner: Nicholas Eyre

Co-script writer and stills photographer: Shontelle Whiston

Actress (and all-round diva): Nadia Husseini-Eyre

Many, many thanks to Nicholas, my brother, who travelled down from Birmingham just to help out on the shoot; to my dear, wonderful Shontelle, without whom I wouldn’t even be embarking on this film-making adventure; and to Nadia, my lovely daughter who gets away totally with being a diva just because…

I have posted a selection of stills below that capture the two days of shooting.  Later, I will also post some screen shots from the film itself.  Enjoy!

Setting up the first shot with my beloved Mini playing a central role (isn't she cute?)!

Mandatory director’s cap here was actually keeping dripping water off my head!
