I didn't get much work done today. The studios are on a dead end road so there isn't much traffic (apart from the fab taxi garage next door), but I found loads of people milling around right outside my studio, camera tracks and umpteen cameras, chaps waving sound recording poles, make up artistes, chaps in suits who were being filmed having a spat, 'take 17' operators, drivers moving the car back and forth, people saying hush and others saying 'action'. I have no idea what all the rest were up to. It was just as well I didn't need to leave in the middle of it all but they did ask I didn't use the chainsaw. I saw them again today filming at the bottom of the flats in the background and with the title 'The Corrupted' and toughie mean looking chaps (who are good to their mother but scowl a lot) I suspect a gritty East End mob film coming.
