Garrow’s Law: Cleaning up London for Sunday

21 October, 2010 at 8:19 pm 2 comments

The following article is certainly of interest to technophiles, but all those of us who are eagerly waiting for the second series of “Garrow’s Law”. Gavin Struthers, Director of Photography, talks about his work on set. There are some pictures from series two, but I wouldn’t consider them spoilerish – it’s common knowledge that Mr. Garrow (Andrew Buchan) is quite dashing even when he looks grumpy.

SHOOTING DRAMA WITH “RED”

“18th Century London was very dirty, noisy and smokey but in designing the ‘look’ it was important to remember the TX slot, this was a Sunday night BBC1 show, it had to sit comfortably in that slot but push boundaries, something the first series did exceptionally well. I added some dutched angles where appropriate and looked to using wide lenses for closeups where possible.”

Bring on the clean rags and fleeless wigs!

      No problem! I have to screen anonymous comments to keep spammers out; I usually unscreen as soon as I see somebody has posted a message. It’s unscreened now. 🙂
