Take 1

'Funny Cow' filming in Saltaire
I did manage to catch one or two of the 'takes'. In this one a small girl, (the comedienne as a child, I assume) skips across the road holding a red balloon. In the background, a number of children waited and then ran up the street - and an old green Morris Minor drove past a man on a bicycle and a street sweeper with a bin. I expect these scenes will last mere seconds on the screen but each took several 'takes' and a lot of time to create. 


  1. There's a lot of work that goes into just a few seconds of film, and a lot of takes that never see the light of day in a theatre.

  2. I watched about an hour of filming of Inspector Lewis in Oxford several years ago. The scene consumed less than fifteen seconds, maybe just ten.
