timelapse shoot on train: Director Franny Armstrong and Producer Lizzie Gillett filming the seasonal timelapse shot from a train in the French Alps. The pair travelled to Chamonix four times and repeated the exact same shot in each season. Every single aspect had to be exactly the same so the shots could be edited together effectively to produce the timelapse shot in the film. This meant catching the same train, at the same time of day, from the same station, on a day with the same weather, flming out the same window, with all the same settings on the camera, and both standing in exactly the same position. Lizzie is bracing Franny to try and make the shot as smooth as possible.

Franny and Moppy with helicopter: Director Franny Armstrong and Photographer Charlotte (Moppy) Rushton were best friends at school and even though they both had wildly ambitious dreams neither could have imagined this scene. Perched on top of a mountain in the French Alps they are taking a momentary pause between filming aerial shots of snow capped mountains for Franny's feature documentary.  Doesn't get much better than that.
