On Location with the Liminal States Crew 04.13.12 - Zack - permalink

As the April 16th launch of the short film based on Liminal States approaches, I thought it would be cool to share some behind-the-scenes photos of Dan Sollis and his fantastic crew at work. These images were captured by set photographer Rachel Blewitt. I asked Dan to provide some captions.

1874 Shoot - Almeria, Spain

When the crew arrived in Almeria they discovered their hotel was burning.

Fort Bravo - a former Western film set, but also used as a tourist attraction. These guys were the stars of the show, putting on a “Bank robbery and shootout.”

1945 Shoot - Camber Sands, UK

Vampires escape the sunlight under a cloth to get a look at the rushes onscreen.

Nathan Nolan (Warrren/Casper) takes a break from the war to enjoy some of his Cool Ranch D-rations.

Camera Assistant Benn Peacock sets up up the light bounce onto Nathan's face for a close up.

Sound Recordist Rob Branch, fighting with a nearby racket to record Nathan's audio.

2006 Shoot - Millenium Mills, UK

Millennium Mills - near London Docklands. The 2012 Olympic site is right next door. The Vietnam portion of Full Metal Jacket was shot at this desolate location.

There is plenty of very random junk lying around Millenium Mills. It's been used recently for the TV Show Ashes to Ashes.
