Val talks about his experience on Right Hand Drive.
"I thoroughly enjoyed working on Right Hand Drive.
Mark, the Director was great to work with - he came to
the set with a clear vision of what he wanted from his
actors, but was also willing to take on board and
listen to any suggestions we made regarding blocking
including minor changes to the script. We did a fair
amount of rehearsings and the open sharing of ideas was
We spent a month in the lovely Wiltshirecountry side in some
very picturesque locations - exactly like they were
described in the script. I also learnt to ride a
rickshaw which wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would
be, but good fun. Ken the 1st AD, Debbie, the Producer
and Nick, the DOP were also great to work with - what a
good mix of talent!
