Foil Man heads menacingly|
We started the dream sequence with the interior location, scripted as a bare white room. To achieve this we shot in what will be the lounge of the student house with the camera suitably adjusted to make things appear much whiter than they actually are. The dream opens with Scanner counting potatoes (perhaps representing the small potato-shaped aliens) before the invincible Foil Man appears and threatens him.

Next up was the field. We headed out to our new location and got set up. If anyone had been walking through the area they might have had a shock - Mike, wearing a dressing-gown, was sitting on his chair in the middle of the field, whilst Dave, dressed as Foil Man, ran around trying to look scary.
Once we had the shots we needed, there was plenty of time to try out the old rope swing and take a look at some of the surrounding woods in case they might prove useful for scenes later in the movie. It's possible we might one day return, but that was all for today - we finished with a couple of pints in the pub followed by a Nepalese curry...
