Photographer's Note

There is a large post, click on the picture to see it.

Continuing my series of posts featuring the film set on Redcar beach for the film Atonement. The beach has been made to look like Dunkirk, 1940, when 300,000 troops needed rescuing before being taken captive by German forces.

I'll run you through the picture from left to right:

On the left is a row of houses which have all been painted and shutters fitted to make them fit the period, there are also various vehicles on the beach. In the middle area are the Olympia Health and Fitness building which has had a whole false roof fitted (it's only really half the size of the hotel next to it) and made to look like the top half is burned out. Also in the middle is a full size ship which has been made to look like it has run aground. The destroyed building just to the right of the ship has been completely built by the set designers and is in the place where the 'Penguins' on some of my earlier posts normally are. Further to the right is the steel works and spectators admiring the scene.
