Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

CEO in vision

07 October 2014

We always build in at least one ‘Changes’ day to the edit, so no problem when Jubilee Sailing Trust come up with some thoughts. They’re good ones – what they propose will improve the movie, and deliver more for the Cator family, for whose big fund-raiser this film is being made. Also we all agree a snap decision to ask Duncan to close the film (most important moment of all in terms of delivering their message.) But where? Luck of lucks, Tenacious is in port nearby – but about to leave. We make it in time and Duncan turns in a strong performance. Fighting the light though, which is fading fast – the location overshadowed by Southampton’s huge Ocean Terminal. A lighting rig would be great, but there’s no time! Get it done, then film Tenacious gliding sweetly away to sea.
