Never Before Seen Behind The Scenes Photos From World’s End

Whilst clearing out my digital camera I came upon the few behind the scenes photos I took on the set of ‘The World’s End’. Many of these are roughs of angles, sometimes a technical scout of the location with the crew, sometimes sitting in the studio with the cast. And even fewer than that are the actual photos I took during the whole three month shoot, which gives you an idea of how busy I was.

Here then are never before seen photos from the production of ‘The World’s End’ – July to Dec 2012.

This is the cast of Martin Freeman’s broken head, nicknamed the Half Bilbo.

This is a test of the in camera effect of the half blank in the Cross Hands bathroom. Posing in the picture is prosthetic artist Barrie Gower. September 3rd, 2012.

    The one you’ve labeled as Hemel Hempstead is actually Welwyn Garden. It’s the bench opposite the Peartree. Really nice pictures though.
