So for a section of the film there is a scene inside the New York Stock Exchange, and it’s unbelievable how much research has to go into a 1 minute section of film! We needed to learn about how the Stock Exchange works, and just as importantly, what the inside of the Stock Exchange looked in the 1920’s. Above are the photographs from the 20s which give a feel for the place. It was also important that we understood how the Stock Exchange actually worked, and these animations really explained how stocks and shares actually work.
Here are some shots from the videos:
The videos were very good for explaining how the Market works, and meant we were able to write a convincing narrative for the film!
