We filmed at JEOL UK www.jeoluk.com in Welwyn Garden City this weekend. JEOL UK are makers of super powerful electron-microscopes, mass spectrometers, and other seriously high-end technical nick-nacks. They make microscopes 6 feet high costing £500K. Actually they make one in Japan that is 40 feet high and takes 2 years to build, but not in Welwyn Garden City! lol As a bit of a science geek I loved seeing these things in action.
We needed a genetics lab (2 in fact), and after a tip-off from a colleague I went to see the nice gents in WGC to let us film in their offices/showroom. Some of the room were kitted out full lab style and were perfect for us. Brilliantly they said yes! :)
Plus we were filming with Gary Kemp and Jamie Murray (who so seriously rocked in Dexter season 2 (fully recomended by yours truely)). A great location and cool weekend.
And Jamie Murray was totally gorgeous and thoroughly charming :)
PS. We wrapped tonight! More later!
