I always enjoy filming with Kenneth, he's a guaranteed treat to work with and Crescent House was no exception. We arrived on set to a deliciously, hot summer's day. Perfect weather? Check. This is always the best way to showcase our properties, especially somewhere as luxurious as the Clapham penthouse.
This was Kenneth's filming debut so he was understandably a little nervous about being on camera. But he reassured me he had done some amateur dramatics which put my mind at ease - we were in for a dramatic filming session. The landlord led us into the property. We were struck by its clean open spaces and elegant details. The landlord had thought about the future property purchasers with the freshly cut flowers and small coffee decanters positioned throughout the apartment. As a videographer I was grateful for the little extras.
The landlord told us to remove our shoes to protect the hardwood flooring. We left them in pairs outside the front door. Then the filming could begin. Starting in the open plan living room Kenneth introduced us to the property with great enthusiasm. Ten takes later and the passion was still there! We went onto the beautiful balcony, extra special on a scorcher of a day, then to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The second bathroom was particularly difficult for Ken to master for some reason. I think it was the movement from walking in, opening the mirror cupboards, pointing to the heated towel rack and then leaving. So I waited in the bathtub with my tripod whilst he mastered the scene. It was a bit like a choreographed dance - he got there in the end, perseverance is key to this acting malarkey.
Ken always gives that little extra to his performance and I noticed this particularly in his closing piece to camera 'let's be amazing together'. What a great message.
