Had a fantastic time recently creating the sets for the short road-trip movie 'Grey WIlliam'. As we adventured through the rural vistas of the Manawatu and the wider Wellington region, I got to explore many places that I hadn't seen before.
As this this was a road movie, the main set of the film was a van – 'Grey William', which, according to the story, was named after the race horse Grey William who features proudly on the dash.
One of the other more involved sets of the shoot was the 'Short Straw Cafe'. For this we used an existing cafe in Whiteman's Valley and just tweaked it a bit to look less modern and more of a country kitchen.
I had some fun taking night shots outside the Shannon police station during the first shoot of our mission. See more images for the shoot on my flickr site.
