G103 – Something a little bit different…

This afternoon saw me being involved in filming of part of 'G103' – a short film about life in the University Maths Department. Well, not exactly like it is, as you will see when the film is released (it involves swords and people dressed as Harry Potter)...

Anyway, I was in a lecture scene (looking from the lecturer's perspective, on the left hand side of the middle block, 4 rows back), and some general lecture style shots were taken, with bits with Mario Micallef (our Geometry and Motion lecturer) speaking, a scene with two of the main charcters speaking at the end of the lecture, plus a scene where we all had to stand up, to cheer/applaud/whistle the main character when he successfully completed a proof, and a couple of other scenes too.

Filming ended up taking nearly two hours (the lecture was used to go through a couple of past G&M exam questions), which I didn't mind as it was pretty good fun. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

In the meantime, the unofficial site for G103 (including a trailer) is here and the official site, with the script and scene breakdown is here .

Also check out Maths Club, a similar short film done in 2003, just before the Maths Department moved from Gibbet Hill to its current building.

The link to the site, which includes a trailer and the full movie, plus posters and other stuff is here

Have fun!
