Last Of The Lounge
Location: Farnborough, Hampshire
Bodies present: David Randell, Ian Lindsay, Sue Element, Mark Stalker, Mike Varty, Henry Burrows
This morning, we made the decision to finish all remaining lounge scenes tonight. Ian is heading off to New York tomorrow to work for a week there (at very short notice!), and Mike needs to use the room currently set up as the student lounge over Easter. Arranging this involved some hectic phoning around the people involved and cancelling all other plans we had made, but fortunately everyone was willing to help out.

The first scene went smoothly, all necessary shots achieved before the sun went down, and then we had an hour's wait until it was dark enough outside to shoot the remaining scenes. This break was a good excuse for food and beer (rehearsals? us? you must be joking!) and for Dave to cool down. The last three scenes involved: (a) Jimmy hunting for a can of beer, (b) Ray having his coat placed over him, and (c) an alien crawling past the video recorder's clock. Easy!
Filming out of the way, we helped move large items of furniture around the house for the last time and packed most of the now useless props into the back of my car. We're now rapidly approaching the end of the student house scenes, with possibly only one or two more evenings' worth of material remaining to be shot here. Coming soon: driving scenes - watch out for a Foil Man in a car near you........
