If you've been following the trials and tribulations of SteamWork Film at all, you'll know that The Flock was put on hold for a number of reasons and we moved forward with another SteamWork original, 'Stop:Watch'. Thanks to the involvement of friends both new and old, the main body of this short sci fi has been shot. A huge thanks, from all of us here, has to go to Northampton County Council who allowed us the use of their amazing, but little known, prison cells beneath County Hall. If you want spooky, you got it! We didn't but we got it anyway. What we wanted was a brutal prison set in a dystopian near future. And that's what we also got.
What we also wanted was a simple shoot. Mostly, we got that too. Apart from setting off the fire alarm with the heat from a big light! It was okay. Roger, the Council Sergeant, was very cool about the whole incident and promptly reset the alarm. Thank you Roger.
We also had spine tingling performances from everyone, cast and crew. A massive thanks, and we look forward to seeing you all for the next stage of the shoot.
