It is a single-location film so there is only one look and design to be considered - Guy's apartment - however, ten to fifteen minutes in one location means that virtually every square centimetre is going to appear on screen at some point or another. In fact, Michael and I have gone through and storyboarded the entire film from start to finish to examine the precise details of what does end up in the lens. The above is true, every wall, prop and corner ends up on screen.
It would make sense then that we found a location, a real apartment, to suit our needs. But with the camera needing to be in so many places, real walls that you can't remove start to become a problem. Add a few other nuisance requirements such as it needing to be specifically a ground floor apartment with sash windows (so that we can set up lights outside to stream through those Venetian blinds) and it started to become apparent that this is a location which needs to be built from scratch.
With all these designs in the bag there will of course come a time to build it all. But that comes later! There's a lot to do before that...
