Ex­plor­ing the many badges of high-rise dp laurie rose

Empire (UK) - - PREMIERE - Ch

Laurie rose (above, with tom hid­dle­ston on the set of ben wheat­ley’s High­rise) is one of the fastest-ris­ing cin­e­matog­ra­phers in the busi­ness, renowned for his work on Made In Stone, Bill and all of wheat­ley’s films to date. but he also moon­lights.

since 2009, re­gard­less of whether he’s shoot­ing a film or a tv show, rose has had badges made ev­ery week (by www.badges­ta­tion.co.uk) that he then hands out to cast and crew. “i’ve had eas­ily 3,500 badges made over the past five years,” he says. at about £25 per 100, that’s a not in­con­sid­er­able out­lay of around £875. it’s worth it when badge Day rolls round on set, though. “Fri­day has be­come the tra­di­tional day for badges, usu­ally herald­ing the end of the work­ing week,” says rose. “it’s not un­usual for a queue to form! but it can get quite stress­ful as you head to­wards Fri­day and you haven’t come up with any­thing yet.”

with High-rise about to hit, we asked rose to dip into his col­lec­tion and talk us through the most mem­o­rable.

High-rise is out on march 11.
