This was one of the toughest to shoot because of technical issues having to do with the 'helmet' and the pneumatic tubes running into it from the back. Before I put the helmet on, the director walked me through everything he wanted. And then I went to the designer, who put me into the helmet, and then carefully walked me (now blind) over to my spot, helped me kneel down, and literally moved my hands to where they needed to be for the shot. When we filmed it, I had to turn towards where I thought the camera was and hope I was right.
The costume designer said he was very happy I wasn't claustrophobic. So was I.
