Caring and Killing - Art Director

The final scene, for the low budget feature film Caring and Killing, is due to be filmed next month. Last week the director, Michael O'Connor, and I went to visit one of the locations I found through The Wales Screen Commission. The amazing property, from the 1500's,  has over 30 rooms and completely blew me away. Which room to pick??

We have just recently finished shooting the final scene for Caring and Killing, where I was required to create a makeshift study in an amazing manor house built in the 1500's.

The below images, taken by Steven Quinn, show how the room looked before I started rearranging : )

The home owner kindly allowed me to use some of his furniture from adjacent rooms, (the desk, chairs and shelving unit) the other props I was able to borrow or I already had.

The below images, also taken by Steven Quinn, show how the room looked after I finished.

In the run up to the shoot I mocked up bills and other letters for the desk and dirtied a cup ready to help show the character had been at the desk for a while. To add a homely feel I also had photos taken of the actors and added these, in frames, to the windowsill, one of which was shown damaged to help convey the characters emotions.

I'm really disappointed filming is over already, but I can't wait to see the final film!
