Today I was on the set of Sophie's Fortune. I'd been offered the role of runner by the producer who I'd met before on the set of Darktown Jubliee's Breakdown music video. I was really happy to be offered the role, especially as he contacted me as I was unaware that they were looking for runners! I will hopefully be taking up the runner role again next weekend for them. The film itself is about a group of dad's who go on a treasure hunt as part of a child's birthday party, but they get carried away and adopt 'hero' personas. It's a fantasy, action-adventure type film and even though I usually avoid action films, it really does look like it will be a great short. Most of my tasks included driving actors and crew to locations, carrying gear to the locations, speaking to members of the public who came across our production (most of them were excited to see men with guns running around!) and generally lending a hand where it was needed. Luckily for most of the day the weather was nice and the location was awesome! It really suited the story and the actors looked great in their costumes too. Everyone on set was really friendly and hardworking, so it was a nice atmosphere.
