The Caves

The Caves is a short film about Viking Cannibals produced by Definitive Films. It was shot in some iconic Nottingham locations including the caves, council house and castle grounds.

As Production Designer I was responsible for set dressing, costume and working in collaboration with a fantastic special effects make-up team headed up by the talented Jayne Hyman.

Many of the cast came from a Viking re-enactor group The Lethrals. They brought a vast array of props costumes and knowledge to the set which made my job really exciting with loads of fantastic artefacts to play with.

As a specialist piece for the feast table I constructed a bespoke ribcage prop which was dressed with cherry pie mixture to create a really gory effect.
