Shopping for Props
For one of our new films – no title as yet – we went shopping for props and costume in Nottingham.

Without giving too much away, the film is set in the Second World War, which has lead to all kinds of problems finding locations and of course getting the right costumes and props.

We spent most of the day in Hopkinson’s on Station Street in Nottingham. If you don’t know it, it is a large old hardware store that has been taken over and turned into a maze of retro and antique stalls. If you can’t find it in there then it probably isn’t to be found.

We had a great time noising around and found some very interesting things …

We will start filming shortly and hope to have the film finished for the film festival in May.
