The Shining Bathroom

Plate Shoot

Alexa Mini / CP2s

1/6th miniature set.

February 19, 2019

This 1/6th miniature replica of the red bathroom in The Shining was was really great set to get the chance to film. It was built using a series of frames from the film rather than proper dimension which I find really impressive. We shot a series of plates that have been sent off to VFX to comp in our actors. I spend quite a bit of time trying to get a smooth track through this space. We had a peewee and a Ronford baker slider ready and prepped. In the end it was a piece of black plastic and a few wedges that achieved the smoothest track. Sets like these always excite me, its something about the scale that I really enjoy lighting for.
