The Loop (TV)
Do you like this video?
Aspects of production covered[edit | edit source]
- The difficulties of finding locations that look like Venice (as Venice itself would be too difficult to sort in a historically accurate looking way for the majority of scenes), and even compositing multiple shots and background plates together in some cases.
- How a small crew went to Venice itself to capture a few wide shots for insertion amongst the location footage.
- Period setdressing.
- Complications with the amount of local extras required, as well as having live animals on-set (notably with one woman and her goat in particular).
- The stunt where Matt had to run away from an exploding building, and jump - in one take.
- The considerations of health and safety for the stunt work of some of the actors having to jump into the water and go under, during Winter time.
Additional topics covered[edit | edit source]
- Historical context to some of the interior locations used, as well as the local area.
- The impact of the Black Plague upon the local area and Italy in general.
