Planning for a care institution exploration

Author sophos9 - Last updated: 21.08.2009

This weekend is going to be another great weekend, for this weekend will see a mission take place! This time, its an even older mental asylum. It started off as a workhouse in the 1760′s, then converted into a mental institute…

Here are some of the research pictures:

Was here today – it’s very difficult to shoot in there! I’ll be interested to see your results tomorrow!

derelicte – cool mate, very dark I should imagine. Whats the state of the inside, looks very original and in good condition?

Despite it’s remote location, kids have found it – it’s pretty mashed up inside. And very dark – don’t forget a torch, and watch out for holes on the upper floors..

Dude, that sux to hear that kids have trashed it – talkurbex crew are over there tomorrow, should be fun for kids as we are taking props for some special shooting ;)

All good for lighting, the LED Lenser P7 kicks out some awesome light :)

the place has atmopshere, but not much in the way of equipment that’s been left – a cool venue in the middle of nowhere.
