I’m not sure how many of you tuned in to the first episode of “Beach.Ball.Babes” last night. Those of you who did might be wondering how Christopher Lee drove so convincingly. I am about to share with you “behind-the-scenes” to a car scene we did together in a later episode. In other words, you get a little preview of what is to come later on, and how it was done.
I’m not quite sure what they were trying to do here, perhaps they were trying to find a way to tow the car?
While waiting for the car to be in position…cameraman, director, Christopher Lee’s body double, lighting engineer, camera assistant taking a break (left to right).
Christopher and his DS Lite.
Tired of squatting, or in need of a change of “fengshui”?
The cameraman prepares the camera for a front shot.
The cameraman is shooting Christopher from my point of view while I’m feeding lines from the backseat.
The tow truck in front drags the Range Rover “driven” by Christopher behind, to simulate the driving experience.
A car scene on television may only be a few seconds, but the filming process can take up to a couple of hours, just mounting the cameras and repeating the lines from different angles. The professional cameraman going all out to capture yet another angle. Please do not imitate.
I’m waiting for the rain to stop with Christopher’s body double. For wide shots, he will take over Christopher behind the wheel.
Here’s a video to give you a better idea!
