This week we’re scouting for locations.
This is possibly the most exciting and purely joyful part of film-making – every thing is before us and there’s nothing but excitement and promise in the air. About eight of us are driving up and down the Spanish coast looking for places where we can shoot our SClub story. It’s fun because, for the moment, we’re quite relaxed and we get to visit all kinds of wonderful places, we get to eat for free and there’s only the hint of the tension that the following weeks will bring. This is also a very important bonding period before the tough days that lie ahead.
Normally this is the time where the key members of the crew get to know each other, sound each other out about ideas and find out about each other’s strengths, weaknesses, foibles and eating habits. This movie is different as all the key players have been making a series for SClub here in Spain for many months. The only new person is me!
