The other piece of film work this week was a full day location recce to Stockton Beach near Newcastle (about 2-hours north of Sydney). We were looking for sites for an old WWII style bunker for a feature film (which is at a very early stage of development).
We took some miniatures up that the director has been working on for concept art & pre-visualisation purposes. They made for some interesting pictures.
As soon as anyone hears that you are working on a film, prices go through the roof. We were escorted around the national park area of the sand dunes and the park rangers charged $330ph. Ouch.
