Who's out there? Oh... the pizza man...
Another freezing night of filming was in the offing as the four students arrive at the door to collect a pizza from the Pizza Delivery Man played by David Randell aka Foil Man. This meant acquiring a pizza box from Domino's, much to the amusement of the staff there. Laura narrowly escapes capture as she investigates the fate of the Pizza Man (to be filmed tomorrow). As usual, the director made us do about ten takes, with intervening breaks to get warm again - perhaps wearing a T-shirt for the part of Jimmy wasn't such a good idea! David revealed a talent for screaming, and acquired quite an audience on the other side of the road as passers-by stopped to watch.

The filming then moved onto the hallway, as Helen desperately tries to wake the other students from their transfixed state as Foil Man tries to get in the front door. There were quite a lot of lines to learn, except for Mike, who only had to say 'Aliens' repeatedly. After a few tries, we were all doing quite well, and getting into our parts.

It's not just the pizza man out there...
