Brief Encounter

Helen Marie Smith got in touch with me about recreating the iconic farewell scene from Brief Encounter at Hull’s Paragon Station. Brief Encounter is a 1945 British romantic drama film directed by David Lean about British suburban life, centring on Laura, a married woman with children, whose conventional life becomes increasingly complicated because of a chance meeting at a railway station with a stranger, Alec. They inadvertently but quickly progress to an emotional love affair, which brings about unexpected consequences.

Helen enlisted the services of her friend Gary Crossman to play Trevor Howard in the shoot.


Here are some other shots from the session.
