I have specific ideas of what my location for filming will look like so I had to go and visit some potential places. First I looked at Swan Park because it has the forestry and beaches that I was looking for and would hopefully save me having to waste time travelling if I could kill two scenes with one location.
I also visited Ness Woods and Benone Beach to see which locations suited best.
I decided on Swan Park for the flashback footage as I was able to film that section of the film while I was visiting it for research. It was more laid back and had the right feel for the film with loads of bridges, gardens and lake side sections. After seeing Ness Woods and Benone Beach I decided to do the red dress scenes between them two places because they were both more natural and more non-commercialised, which is what I was going for. I wanted the landscapes to feel secluded and distant.
