Out of the studio – Old School House

Yesterday I shared the images from Big Rock, where we shot our 1975 inspired Picnic at Hanging Rock images. Today we move onto a little building we found as we were leaving the National Park. We believe its an school house. OK, so not as impressive or commanding as the one from the actual movie,…
