“Chris Clarke was the DoP on the shoot and he was using the EOS C700, which was a pre-production version and I think the only one in the world at that time. In a project of this size I have to distance myself from the kit and concentrate on directing. It’s all about finding the right people for the job and Chris and I had worked on an RNLI project before and got on really well. Plus I liked his approach. If you have got an ambitious shot list, actors and a performance you don’t want to be bogged down with the technical. That’s really important and that’s why Chris was brought in.” – Clive Booth
