This year’s Best Picture Oscar winner, The Hurt Locker has won praise from the film fraternity — reaching as far as Bollywood. David Bryan who was the Supervising Art Director of the film has been appointed as the Production Designer for Abbas Tyrewala’s upcoming film, 1-800-Love starring John Abraham.
Speaking about the film, David says, “We wanted to portray the real London that is rarely seen, it’s an amazing city with very diverse locations. In particular we were looking for a real iconic Studio Apartment for our lead actor John Abraham. Later in autumn, the climax to the film grew into an epic 4 nights filming on Tower Bridge with John doing his own stunts, a real star!”
“Working with a Bollywood crew was a great experience, much more than on a similar British film,” he added.
During the shooting of the film in London, the production blocked off traffic completely on Tower Bridge for 3 nights and shot scenes that even restricted boat traffic on the Thames.
The film which is under post-production is a romantic comedy set in London and will be David’s first release after The Hurt Locker.
