    Maybe they could film one of the mission impossible films here ??

    Just-James. I was watching the middle tier where they were gathered. I pity the poor sods in the edit suite as for the life of me I can't see how they are going to push/pull those exposures into anything resembling an even illumination, especially as they were only using what amounted to 'domestic' kit. On the other hand, we could both be doing them a disservice, and the effect that would have you and I pulling our hair out may be exactly what they are after. I would love to see the finished 'print'.

    Helmetfire - I don't know if you caught the filming from the street level. They had all the red ladies come down the steps with the three white ladies in the centre. They did a few retakes. In some, there was a strong shaft of sunlight right up the middle of the central flight of steps - so some were in the su and some were in shade. Then, the next take had no sun at all. I shudder to think how that can possibly be edited. And the filming went on until it was nearly dusk as far as the light was concerned. I don't know about the finished film but it was certainly entertaining to watch the filming.

    Agreed Just-James. My last post seems to have been removed...

    Helmetfire - I didn't see any lights to speak of. I was already thinking this is a very low budget production. Lack of light and single camera moving through the women says to me it must be one of those arty farty things. I would actually like to see it, if only to see how amateurish it all was without a proper crew, lights, etc.

    The producer/director may take one of your ideas on board.

    As an ex-TV Cameraman, I have to say that I am not impressed with their lighting control. On a day like to-day they should be using a lot of fill lights. But maybe they are after the 'exposure all over the place' look.

    On the lower level - street level - they have a long boom for a camera. That makes me think this is for a movie. My other thought is that all the red ladies are going to sacrifice the three white ladies! Another thought is that the church has decided to let women priests and these are a bunch of cardinals that have just been appointed. (I could go on with loads of my outlandish theories but I will sod off now)

    Obviously some sort of chaotic photoshoot.

    There's also a few ladies in white frocks. Vestal virgins?

    12:2 - a load of the ladies are sitting on the steps and I can see three coppers at the balustrade, but not, apparently paying any notice. I thought it was big fines for sitting on the steps.

    Anyone know what is with all the ladies in red with veils? Looks to be camera crews there too.

    What are these Ladies doing then? Is it a meditation class?
