So today I took Zaeem to visit one of the locations PFZ will be using for a scene, in the lovely Kingston upon Thames!
To be honest we could not have asked for a better day! It was just perfect – birds were singing, it was warm and sunny! With England you never know when it will be Sunny again so you have to lap it all up while you can!! And it is in this type of weather that you can really experience the beauty that Kingston has to offer
Our shoot location is at my very own beloved Kingston University (Wahey!) My campus have been very kind in allowing the team to shoot in the Nursing school at Kingston Hill campus where there is a ‘Skills room’ that has been built to look like an actual hospital ward, beds, curtains, flooring, equipment, sinks the full Monty! It is actually quite a weird sensation when you walk in through the door. You are immediately overwhelmed with that uncomfortable feeling that seems to wash over you when your in an actual hospital. The room has everything down to a T! The immaculate levels of hygiene, the decor!
The room is designed to allow student Nurses to role play emergency situations. Ideally, any mistakes would be made in this room, as the safety net is that its not real! No one suffers at the consequence of your mistakes. So when these amazing Nurses to be do face any medical emergency, they can face it head on having been prepared before hand.
A massive thank you is needed for Susan Rush, a Principal Lecturer at the Nursing school who has given us a lot of advice and guidance and of course permission to film in the building! Can you imagine trying to ask permission to film in a real hospital? it would be MADNESS lol
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon. Mika is over and out!
Extra, Extra read all about it!! Phat Fyterz have finally cast all the characters for the production!
Auditions were definitely a learning curve and I have a new found respect for everyone involved in the audition process, both the actors/actresses and the Directors. It is extremely difficult to not let personal feelings and emotions cloud your judgement!
The cast shall soon be announced!! They are an amazing, talented group of people and I for one am very happy to have them on board and excited to see what will happen next!
On behalf of the entire Phat Fyterz Clan (Yes I said Clan!!) We are all VERY sorry for how quiet and lonely the blog has been.. and of course our audience 😉
A lot has happened for PFZ over the past few months and we have been extremely busy, you kind of forget how easy it is to get completely caught up in what you are doing, forgetting that your neglecting the poor blog.. and you 😀
So just to quickly catch up one of of the exciting things we have been up to is our casting! We had a full day of casting at Brick Lane, at a lovely venue at The Rag Factory. The owner Silas was amazing and we would definitely recommend his services to other people! SO if anyone needs a venue at a great price! Don’t be shy and contact us and we can hook you up!
But damn was doing the auditions tiring! I wasn’t even the one acting or moving! lol! It was great fun and I got to meet lots of people. I also learnt that judging people in terms of their ability is actually a lot more difficult then you think it is! It is quite easy to sit there in front of your TV and yell abuse at that crappy singer on the X Factor auditions, yet when your staring that person in the face knowing that what you think and say will determine that persons involvement in a project is actually a little surreal!
Now here is the tough part… Who do we choose? Time to hit the drawing board! Until next time guys!
