Behind the Scenes: A Field in England (2013)

A Field in England #7

The execution of an exploding head gag in British horror auteur Ben Wheatley’s newest film, A Field in England.

A Field in England – the latest from Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley – hit stateside Video on Demand a few weeks ago. And with it came the most comprehensive production diary I’ve ever laid eyes on.

The psychedelic period piece’s official site features a breakdown of the film’s entire creative process from conception to pre-production to shooting to post-production. That means videos or articles detailing the cinematography, visual effects, costuming, acting, locations, sound, editing, marketing and distribution.

The movie was shot in 12 days in a single location with a Red Epic as the A-camera and a Canon C300 as B-cam. Cinematographer Laurie Rose used only a pair of panel lights (1 foot-by-1 foot squares full of small LED bulbs), lighting the rest of the film with reflectors to redirect the sunlight. Continue onward for just a few of the behind the scenes shots available on the official site.
