Alfie’s garage


Having left Aynhoe, we moved to London. Our second location is placed in the heart of Stratford – a highly industrialized district in the eastern part of the city. Through a colourful door covered with graffiti, we entered an amazing vast space which we are going to use as “Alfie’s garage”, namely an illegal gun […]

Spooky toilet at the Manor


Even if for natural reasons you frequent ladies’ room when the nature calls, do not leave the manor without peeking into the gents’ room, too! It is a truly memorable place – with dim, atmospheric lights, weird-looking hunting trophies and a rotating chandelier that can make you feel dizzy if you watch it for too […]

Day 4 of filming

Robert Murray

Our last day at Campbell Manor this week was devoted to two scenes with Robert Murray, the film’s villain (one of many, actually). First, a police officer pays him a visit to find out more about Robert’s connections with a recent murder. Obviously, Murray tells the police nothing that could help them in their investigation, […]

Day 3 of filming

Robert Murray

On the third day of filming, we were still at Campbell Manor. We completed three scenes in the library, part of which had been cleverly adapted to serve as Murray’s fancy office. Murray has an intense phone conversation with Gennady, a Russian mobster, whose help he requires. We then shot Beatrice and Curtis happy after […]

Library at the Manor


On one of the first days of filming, we are allowed to the library – a very special room in the Manor that is normally closed. When we enter the room, we are instantly overwhelmed by even more stuffed animals, an impressive desk with a dominant red leather armchair and innumerable volumes of old books, […]

Day 2 of filming


On the second day of filming at Campbell Manor we met young Beatrice and Martin again. This time we shot the scene when they meet for the first time.

Day 1 of filming

Beatrice and Martin’s date

The first three scenes from our film were shot at Campbell Manor today! The filming started with a heated conversation between David and Murray which takes place in the morning after Olive’s daring burglary into the Manor. It is very intense stuff: Murray, being furious about losing his precious belongings, blackmails David into helping him […]

Final touches to the script


Or in other words … It’s never too late for an ingenious change! Three days before the shooting starts we have introduced the last (hopefully!) changes to the script, following the director’s recommendations. For example, in Scene 1: Suki suggested replacing the original with this dynamic sequence: K

Aynhoe Mansion: An absolutely fascinating place to visit


There can be little doubt that the interior designer of the mansion had very particular interests, including stuffed animals, nudity and other odd artwork. Have a look at the photos to admire but a few examples of what you can come across in this extraordinary building. You won’t be bored there, that much I can […]
