The first day of filming is unique in the life of a film. I always get a little anxious on that day for what are probably obvious reasons. Is the set ready? Is the lighting ready? Are the puppets as good as I can make them? Is the script any good? Do I really want to make this film? What am I doing? You get the idea. Even though I’ve spent close to year working on FILTH the start of animation is a different animal altogether. Up until now it’s all felt like theory. Not anymore.
