The scene where Javier leaves the elevator and walks towards seated JB, explaining how rats eat coconuts, how many takes did you do for this scene. Getting the walk and syncing dialogue to end with “then there were 2 rats”. This must have been rehearsed many times, the pace of the walk must coincide exactly with the end of the dialogue. So was this scene a difficult shoot, most people would probably track Javier as he got out of the lift but I must admit your version certainly worked. Lovely scene.

I think we rehearsed a few time and then shot about 10 takes, of which 4 or 5 would have been good. Javier paced the walk with the dialogue very quickly.

Many thanks Roger.
