This is from one of our shortest film shoots for Tell Them of Us last night. One of the main characters in the film was a VAD (volunteer aid detachment) nurse during WW1 and we had already filmed a short scene with her in uniform. But the building in Horncastle that was used as the VAD hospital has few original features left, so the scene was restricted to a corridor and stair well. Then were heard that a small corner of the hall was being transformed back into a hospital for Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days weekend and asked if we could film a few seconds of establishing shots there. It literally was only a few seconds, and made even shorter when one of our lights exploded a foot from my left ear!
