This will be Bower’s office. The university can provide various props - desk, chairs, book shelves etc. Clearly it needs to look like a real office, while still keep an austere feel. We’d like to feature the door - Bower’s entrance etc - but that will mean coming up with a plan to cover/ dress the current doorway as featured in the pics. The dimensions are approx 6m x 4.5m
FERMAT’S LAST THEOREM
This clip is of the wonderful Horizon made about Andrew Wiles, the man who solved Fermat’s Last Theorem. The film won a Bafta.
Wiles was in the back of my mind when thinking about Bowers. His intense shyness, his driving quest to solve the Theorem, and his absorption in a world of abstract ideas, are all traits I’ve drawn on. Bowers is of course a far darker figure.
Note Wiles’s chaotic desk, in contrast to Bowers’s one which I am imaging to be almost spartan in appearance.
We’d probably have to rethink this scene a bit…but this might work as a location for the final scene
Some other lecture hall options. These are on the ground floor and have daylight. Less tiered and a bit smaller.
THAMES VALLEY - DEPT OF MATHS CORRIDOR?
This place has a lot of the props and furniture we may need - viz the glass noticeboard
THAMES VALLEY UNIVERSITY
This location had a lot to offer…v compact but not sure if it’s affordable!
This room the classic lecture hall though without windows and might be tricky to light….
