Pop Up, the movie – Block 2

Block 2 of shooting for Stuart McBratney’s feature film Pop-Up happened. It was totes radical, dudes.

Seriously, the team pulled together brilliantly on this block. In my next post I’ll go into detail about the all-nighter we pulled, but for this post it’s all general behind the scenes shots.

Mounting the camera on the bonnet of the car:

Becks is the Assistant Director.  She’s amazing. The queen of getting stuff done, at short notice, with a quickly-depleting phone battery.


This is Ryan, aka Fluffy. Clapper loader extraordinaire and stand up guy. And I mean stand up… he’s about 8 feet tall.

I think this might actually be the one and only photo of me on set, and I had to take it myself.


Nick, Donna and Sophie hiding from the intense summer sun and having a Saxby’s Ginger Beer break. We had many of those, it was awesome.

Greg aka Neil, ready to run down Perkins Street, yet again. And again. And again.

We ate so many Grill’d burgers and chips…. NOM NOM NOM.  They are DELICIOUS.


Here’s a scene in the movie, a contemplative one. Lone guy on couch. Focus on the loneliness.


Yeah, not so lonely when you swing around and look the other way.

Stuart and sound man Mark also took many ginger beer breaks.


As did Tahnee.
