Stills from Great Brytania’s Teaser

Just a couple of shots from the teaser as I edit away. This pic was taken from one of the block of flats in Zielona Gora, and in the film it represents Magda’s home in Poland.

The second shot is kind of cool, showing Magda smoking at the coach station before she departs for England. In the film, the story is split into two chronological periods. The scenes in the UK takes place in the present day, while the scenes from Poland takes place in the 1990’s. That was hard to do, shooting in today’s Poland, but to portray a world 15-20 years ago. That meant no new cars or buses, no new logos, and clothes that would match the time period. Yeah, tricky stuff, so a close up of our leading actress smoking a cigarette was a nice shot to portray.

Oh yes, the joy of editing!

  1. This movie is a lot of work. You choose an involved background, requiring you to change scenes to match the 90’s. Kudos to you for not backing away from a tough project!!! Thanks for writing about it. People like me who are not real movie afectionadoes, don’t realise how much work goes into this art.
