'Culloden' filming

Postby Steve of RaT » Mon Mar 19, 2007 10:17 am

Here is Tod (of Foxblade not the other one) with our colour and a norwegian member on Saturday morning. It was cold and very high, gusty wind

Here is the view from the coach Sunday morning still high wind with a wind chill of -8 and no way the production crew would let us out.

Yes that's me 8) . I knew someone would just view the directory, but as all the pictures are posted around several forum it don't matter about putting an index.html in.

Nice photos Steve.

Never made it to the top of the hill, nice to see what I missed out on while staying at the hotel!

More pics here from 'Scotswars' via Henrik.

I've been sent a link to more photos http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/sou ... 466317.stm

If anyone got a photo of me on either day, can I have a copy?

Mark you were lucky, the reason everyone on the photos is huddled together is to act as wind break for those behind and then rotate to the back. Though you did miss some of the kit :? (and it wasn't from wardrobe) every thing you would expect in a Victorian idea of a highlander to Victorian costume including red pom-pom.:shock: :cry:
I'm still willing to go government if required after finishing the jacobite bits.

Unfortunate these - I also saw a couple of jackets in a fetching Prince of Wales check c. 1937.

There was reputedly a regiment of the British Army which fastened its puttees in the opposite direction to everyone else as the result of the Colonel turning up on parade one morning haveng still been half cut when he got dressed - RSM "Sir your puttees are the wrong way round!" Colonel " RSM I think you will find that, in fact, it is you who is incorrectly dressed!"

This is a cross post from another site but a short video of the charge can be found here (http://www.scotwars.com/html/images/charge.wmv) on the 'Scotwars' website.

Shot by a participant rather than part of the actual film recording I think.

A couple of pics from the follow up film shoot, a long and tiring day but quite enjoyable for a film shoot! Redcoats curtesy of Pulteneys, Flemmings, Royals a Cobham and costumed extras. We also squeezed in a guest from RaT. The weather was much more amenable too.

And I'm in pic 6, to the right of Mr Smith who is taking a well deserved beating at the hands of Mr Turton.

Seeing as I was stood next to Mr Turton does that mean I was giving you a "well deserved beating" :twisted:

I can't quite remember, I gave quite a few scots a hiding that day.

Got you - No I rushed past you and then died when I went past the matey from Flemmings.

You were the guy who said "Grenadiers never go down" (despite what it said in the toilets in Lauder) and the next time I saw you, you were on the floor.

So "HA..!"

and

"HA..!" again

Just you wait till Bath - you will find that pointy hats are no match against French quisine and hide-and-go-sneaky shooting.


Vive le Roi,
Andy

Hi all,

Thank you for a wonderful day! :D
Does anybody have more pictures from the filming? I would love to see them. Many of the photos from the first filming are really atmospheric, so I'd love to see how the others have turned out.

Gerry, you're one of the two redcoats I got to slash with a claymore, right? :D

One of my favourite moments on saturday was right after I had "killed" the two British soldiers in front of me. I continued moving towards the British Army's second line when Mark P. shouted to one of the grenadiers; "Kill that man!". We closed in and the grenadier then did his duty by clubbing me with his musket butt.
During one of these takes I landed on top of a heap of dead bodies, that had been mown down by a volley from the British second line. I remember Mark (the one with lowland kit and short green coat) being one of them.

Cheers,
Henrik

Radio Scotland made a little report on the filming. Neil Johnston informed me the show was aired today. You can listen to it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/radioscot ... moviecafe&
The part about Culloden starts after about ten or so minutes... It will only be available about a week, I think.

His Todship (...) Oh, sorry, I mean His Lordship Tod, or just Tod, sounds very proud of Lace Wars effort. :)

Cheers,
Henrik

Good effort all round, I reckon.

Managed to squeeze off a few snaps of the government line, but none of my brave highlanders.

We ought to get "I went to Culloden, but all I got was 17.5 inches of triangular section socket bayonet" T shirts done?

See Henrik...

The above was only for the 'special ones' the rest of you can have T shirts saying "I went to Culloden, but all I got was a lead marble"

Nothing wrong with that. There were at least 3 others that decided to. One was I believe from NFOE but the name escapes me for now. Another was a certain Mr S (can never remember which is which) and I have photographic evidence of that.

Best place for biscuits really - my last hob-nob was left in the packet and was soft by the time I git round to devouring it.

Most unsatisfying
