The first day we discovered the location for the beach had been a tease. The sea was dead calm and glassy which created an eerie silence for the scene where the stranger comes on on board. Since then it has been fairly windy which has worked perfectly for the scenes in terms of the visual effect. The girls hair whipping around in the breeze added a lovely quality to the tempestous fight scene between Silka and Ken. It's amazing how the wind can wear one down. At the end of the day, all our eyes were red from the wind salt and sand. Back at the hotel, a few glasses of Celtia, the local Tunisan beer, helped sooth our parched lips.
Had to include another shot of the donkey! Here is from left to right, Saafa, continuity, Henry, first AD, and Will our intrepid cinematographer.
