 "Filming Begins"

Production of “From Hell” has begun.  That means we started working long days.  We are filming 6 day a week.  The workday averages about 14 hours.

 Let’s meet some of the people involved with the film.

We began filming on locations that were either in Prague or within an hour’s drive. Now we have moved onto our “back lot” set.  The Art Department built a replica of the White Chapel section of East London, as it would have appeared in 1888.  The set is quite amazing.  We will be filming there for at least a month.

We have just begun 6 weeks of night shooting.  Staying up all night is one of my least favorite things to do.  However, the set looks lovely when lit for night work.  I will try to have some photos from the night time on a future page.

Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a question.
