A couple of mistakes I made on the second days of shooting: I chose to shoot Fay for the silhouette sunrise then I was rushing Gerard on his shots and we missed the light. The shots with him were complete unusable. The folding paper shots looked grotty and the last shot of the film had a dreadful background. I decided to go back to Coogee beach for another shoot. The crew were only Ben, Joy, Elham and Stilgherrian and it was only for Gerard so that I could concentrate on him. The call was half an hour earlier since we hit spring time.
The plan was to keep Gerard slow and keep him looking at the camera. I finally got the shot I wanted with sunrise on him.
