As a couple of my paintings are based in caverns and caves Phil advised me to watch the film 'The Descent'. I picked it up the other day and gave it a watch and was really impressed with the locations and set design. Most of the film is set underground, it is based around a group of six friends who go on a caving expedition into a underground network which has never been entered. This has given me some help with the lighting effects in my cavern painting, as the lighting in this film is very striking and it has good contrast between the dark caves and sunlight. Although the film is depressing and quite violent (Only one of them survives) it has a good plot and suspense.
