So its normally all going on in airline loos but what shocking places to try and shoot. We think we’ve not just made it possible but fairly easy. We have 3 different styles of loo; two economy and one from a First Class Cabin. Of the two economy options one is a complete toilet section, but oversized by about 20% just to give a little more wiggle room. The door opens wide, the mirror removes four camera as do sections of the rear wall. The ceiling lifts off for lighting. The whole cubicle is on a sturdy base meaning it can be floated away from the rest of the set, or even easily removed to shoot another day when you don’t have loads of SA’s standing around on the payroll.
The second economy style option is actually made up of 3 separate identical loos. Each is lit the same and has the same floating ceiling for lighting. One is complete (to shoot your hero going in), one has the rear wall removed (to shoot the reverse) and the last has the mirror removed (for hero face on). Again each loo easily floats away from the set for ease of camera access or to simply take away to another location.

So last week I think I made some claim to having 17 studio ready cockpits? Got me thinking... and adding up... It’s actually 23. All housed in a new 18,000 sq ft shoot space. If you need a cockpit for your #filmproduction then look no further. #ukfilm #Filmmaker #filmmaking https://t.co/KLSFK5jLV04th February 2019
Filming on/in/around Airliners. The most common request we receive is that of a production wishing to film inside an airliner. Be that…
