Been thinking about this and I do have some alternatives to the Savoy , but it really is the best location. Only other thing is that it might be interesting to do a little on exterior lighting , but that may not be practical.
The other alternatives are
1 the firkin crane , but it is smaller less varied and hasn’t got as much length and Height , but we could get it for very reasonable. It’s a busy spot.
2 there’s a possibility of access to a number of school hall type places . ( Farranferris is one )
but school halls aren’t ideal as there is the lack of total blackout .
3 Granary , might be possible ( but I think it costs )
4 Dans Kitchen for Greenscreen ( inside Joke there !!)
