blog-pic

As we prepare to film the next two in the series of six commissioned films for Positive Edge Education Ltd, we thought we’d publish a sneak peek at the first two films…

ISTEIN2

Actor James Bryhan brought the older Albert Einstein to life with the help of excellent make-up by Tania Ashworth. Long day, but great fun.

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again, as crucial as planning and preparation is before an intensive shoot, it’ll only take you so far without a great crew to back you up – thanks guys!

Evolution

Darwin

Evolution was another brilliant day on set, working with a top quality cast.

Playing the role of the young Charles Darwin out to prove himself, is Edinburgh based actor Chris Bain and he did a wonderful job. Chris has another film due out this year, Shooting Clerks, check it out!

Another stand out performance came in the shape of Carl Wharton as Robert Darwin, the father of Charles.

Of all the films in the series, Evolution is one of the most demanding in terms of FX work.

Alongside the usual virtual set-pieces and backgrounds required for a green-screen shoot, our script called for him to witness the age of the dinosaurs and the coming of the Ice Age.

It was great fun bringing a T-Rex back to life though!

Now it’s back to preparing for the next shoot, so keep watching this space! In the meantime, please take a few minutes to find out a bit more about Positive Edge Education and what these guys are doing  – it’ll change lives.
