The Shoot

We shot on location in Cumbria in late August 2020. The shoot was challenging due to key locations being inaccessible to vehicles and the industry COVID-19 measures we were required to follow. We were very lucky with the weather, at times it appeared to be reading the shoot schedule and enjoyed a week of camaraderie, boredom and exhilaration (when things came together) - the usual strange journey of filming.
