The Day Hitler Died

Company: Finestripe
Broadcaster: ITV
Director: Craig Collinson
Date: Aug 2015.
Director of Photography

As Russian and Allied forces surrounded Berlin in 1945, Hitler took refuge in a bunker beneath the crumbling city. What exactly happened in that claustrophobic labyrinth has long been a mystery. This film depicts Hitler's final days, detailed through never-before-seen interviews with the men and women who were with him during those last desperate moments. These recordings, lost for decades, but recently found in an archive in Pittsburgh, tell the untold story of the Fuhrer's final days, in the words of the people who were there.

The bunker were shot in a set at Film Citty in Glasgow. The set was enclosed so we could shoot 360 degrees and move through the set with complete freedom.
