The Illamasqua Diaries – Day One at Pinewood

After the huge success of the Illamasqua short films, starring the wonderful and talented Vicky McClure, we’re back shooting once again and this time it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

Today is the first day in a whole week of shooting and if it’s anything to go by we’re in for an exciting week. Propaganda’s Mark Williams, Creative Director, and Nicki Casey, TV Producer, are with Vicky at the legendary Pinewood Studios where today she is filming underwater scenes in the studios tank, which holds an incredible 1,200,000 litres of water.

Legendary cameraman, Mike Valentine, who has worked on a whole host of amazing music videos, TV programmes and films, including Casino Royale, is filming the underwater scenes and we are delighted to have him on board. Take a look at this “making of” film to find out more about Mike Valentine’s work and see exactly where we are shooting today.

Directing the film is Paul Gore of Flynn Productions, he is one of the most sought-after directors in the industry and has worked on a huge range of projects including music videos for Massive Attack and The Noisettes, find out about more of his work.

Tomorrow we’re hitting a secret location to continue filming but keep a look out for behind the scenes tweets (@propaganda_uk) and another blog tomorrow!
