John Proctor ~ The Crucible (The Old Vic, 2014)

Tell us about how The Crucible was filmed.
“It was done over three nights so they had three chances to capture what they needed. Digital Theatre came in early and sat in lots of different seats so they could see the best angles for shooting. They ended up with six camera positions and a top shot, looking down at the stage. The only difficult thing was the scene where I take off my shirt to wash. We didn’t want to lose that for the film because it says something about seeing a man stripped back and vulnerable. But hiding a mike cable on my body was difficult – we ended up having to tape it down my side.”
