Filming the plane interior.
We began shooting in earnest today with the aircraft cabin sequence. This should have been one of the easiest parts of the shoot as I had found several companies advertising cabin sets (most of them are simulators used by airlines to train cabin crews) but when I started trying to make a booking I found that all of them were either out of business or simply not interested in helping a low-budget short film.
Luckily I was able to track down a suitable location at an aircraft museum which was available at the right price. :)
We shot very light, with minimal lighting (just a couple of LED panels) and relied on the natural lighting in the plane itself. The shots turned out great and will really help to add some production value to the project.
Next shoot is in a couple of weeks, when we shoot interiors for the main scene that comprises the majority of the film.
