The rockets launched in the scenes were all meant to be real rockets, and in fact they were brought to the set ready to launch. However severe storms and wind prevented the rockets being launched and all cast was asked to look upwards on a count of 1,2,3 so the rockets could be composited into the shot after the filming See more »
As I write this review, Patwick's Planet has just finished its run of 13 episodes.
It tells the story of Patrick, a 12 year old who lives on a council estate and he and his mates are assigned to build a rocket as part of a school project and the best one wins. He is helped by his family, including sisters and his Gran too.
This gives you an idea on what life is living on a council estate, where this is set. It was filmed in Bristol.
One annoying thing about this is where the main character talks direct to the camera about what is happening.
Patrick is played by Jamie Hutchinson.
