Cast and crew of the Descent Part 2

My friend Simeon Halligan and partner Rachel Richardson-Jones recently organised Manchester horror film festival – Grimmfest.  In addition to screening Simeon’s own feature film ‘Splintered’, the festival is also hosting a number of other films within the Horror genre and includes interactive events such as public signings and Q and A sessions with some of the cast and crew members.

On the opening night of Grimmfest, the Director and two of the actors from the movie ‘The Descent part 2′ were on site at the Printworks Odeon Cinema in Manchester.  I was asked to take a few publicity shots of Director John Harris and actors Myanna Buring and Anna Skellern. I decided to use Elinchrom studio lighting (which I partly regretted due to the heavy task of carrying the gear to and from the car park). Initially, the plan was to shoot against an existing backdrop that included the logo ‘Grimmfest’.  However, due to problems with reflection, I decided to shoot the two separately and merge them together later.  I completed this shoot on my own (without an assistant) and had about 15 minutes to get the main shots required by the press and PR company.  Then I had to merge the main shot later that night (1am to be exact) in anticipation that the press would be screaming for images the next morning.  All were uploaded to Theimagefile as high resolution images, a place where they can be viewed and downloaded immediately by the client.
