Congratulations to the cast & crew of Solitary, a feature film by Katharine McEwan that wrapped yesterday in Portsmouth! It was a fascinating, fun & exhausting 3 weeks away.
We shot in a real prison (not functioning), which has put me right off crime. You do not want to go to prison! Everything’s hard, cold and cream. Also very creepy. I almost gave myself a heart attack when I decided the best place to wash paint trays was the men’s locker room at dusk (of course I couldn’t find the light switch). Every time I felt myself getting absorbed in the task I panicked because that’s always the moment when they leap out at you with machetes.
It was a special treat to work with Arlo Markantonatos (Production Designer), Pete Wallington (Director of Photography) and a very talented & good-humoured crew.
