Outside sleazy hotel


To shoot the exterior of the location known as the “sleazy hotel”, we went to Brunel Estate in London. It is not exactly the most luxurious place in the world, especially when you compare it to the splendid locations that we have already been to, like Aynhoe Manor. But it serves the purpose well – […]

Day 21 of filming


We spent the morning in the kitchen at the B&B, which is not a bad place of work with all the snacks and coffee around. The first of the “kitchen scenes” shows David and his mum having a chat, shortly after the Murray’s painting has been stolen. David is taciturn when it comes to discussing […]

Day 20 of filming


We started the day with some physical exercises on the set. Charlotte had to demonstrate Olive’s daily workout which keeps her fit and combat-ready. This included sit-ups, shadowboxing, stretching and kicking. Since Olive is a serious athlete, Charlotte could not even utter a solitary pant! It was quite a challenge. We then shot a scene […]

Bed and Breakfast


Mrs Owen’s Bed & Breakfast is a lovely place that instantly makes you feel comfortable. There are wooden floors in almost every room and on the staircase, so as we walk around, spooky creaks can be heard all over the building. Actually, because of the creaky floors, we are asked to walk barefoot when filming […]

Day 19 of filming


Welcome to Mrs Owen’s Bed & Breakfast in Old Berry. It is a nice, cosy guest house where Olive is staying prior to the heist. The first scene we shot at the B&B was Olive’s arrival and checking in. This is when she first meets David and his mother (played by Jeanette Rourke). The climax […]

Day 18 of filming


Today we were occupying a section of a high street in London, shooting inside and outside a clothes shop. The first scene we did shows Olive and David shopping for new clothes as they spent the previous night digging their own graves at gun point and doing other messy things. They are followed by Vlad […]

Day 17 of filming


This was a long day for the crew, spent mostly outside. First, we did the first of the three “park scenes” with Olive and David having a quarrel over what happened back at the sleazy hotel and what they should do next to deal with both the Russian mafia and Murray. The scene has a […]

Day 16 of filming


We are back at the sleazy hotel where we have left Olive, David and the Russian mobsters. Today we are doing tonnes of ACTION – fighting, terrorising with guns, running away, tying up, etc. Olive, brutalised by Vlad, is of little use and it is time for David to be the hero of the day […]

Day 15 of filming


Today’s scene takes place at a shabby hotel in London renting rooms by the hour. Being chased by two Russian mobsters – a seasoned veteran named Vlad (Charlie Rawes) and his reluctant apprentice Sergey (Oliver Watton), Olive and David are hiding, trying to come up with a way out of the whole situation. Their conversation […]

Day 14 of filming


Finally, the day has come to shoot the very first scene of our film! Olive is in her flat in New York. Her life is a mess – she has just been in a fight, she is broke and, to make things worse, some very bad people want to get even with her. As she […]
