A 3 day mute shoot on location on the Cote d’Azur for a production budget guide of £100,000 (€115,000).
Having our own production facilities in Nice, and by taking advantage of the many low cost flights available, enabled us to take our time recceing, casting and enjoying the fine weather. With everything in place, including buyouts on local artists, we then returned two weeks later for an immensely enjoyable shoot in and around the mountains above Nice.
It was all so relaxed; the casting was easy with so many artists to choose from, all the locations were brilliant and the light and the weather were a dream. Nothing was too much trouble. Since one of the key selling points was the air-con I was able to build and develop a story which involved getting ice cold champagne from a frustrated vigneron to an anxious maitre d’ hotel at a wedding celebration.’
