We met with a number of challenging factors.
- Firstly, the temperature dropped during the evening to just above freezing. This is not all that common in Perth, but this winter (and indeed the last summer) has been a little more extreme than usual. So between takes, the cast were often seen hopping in and out of dressing gowns, quilts, jackets and the slightly warmer office space inside.
- Then there were environmental factors including passing trains along the railway some miles away. Large freight trains can take a long time to pass by and are very noisy.
- More significantly was the persistent alarm that repeated a cycle for hours on end. All attempts to contact the owner, security or anyone failed to resolve the matter.
Now I have a short break of a few weeks before I have four weeks of weekend filming, which will wrap up my character for the show.
