'Supernova' Special: Harry Macqueen and Dick Pope discuss filming on location in the Lake District

Exploring filming locations around Keswick and Crummock Water


Filmed on location in the Lake District and starring Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, 'Supernova' follows couple Sam and Tusker on a campervan roadtrip as they come to terms with Tusker's early onset dementia. In this special episode of the podcast, we speak to writer and director Harry Macqueen and cinematographer Dick Pope about their experience of developing and filming 'Supernova' in the Lake District. We ask them about their filming locations around Keswick and Crummock Water, why they chose the Lake District as the location for the story, and whether they climbed any hills in between filming. Thanks to StudioCanal for contacting us and to Harry and Dick for sharing their love of the Lake District with us.

'Supernova' is out in UK cinemas on 25th June 2021.
