Director Colin & I wanted to try to give this one-off special episode a look and feel different to what the Hollyoaks audience was accustomed to. We chose to use handheld camerawork more and longer lenses as Colin likes to let actors get into a world where crews aren't on their backs and for a more pragmatic reason it allowed us to shoot around Liverpool city centre with less public rubber-necking into the scenes.
