The sets of the film were based on Titanic's blueprints and the only existing photograph of the telegraph room. The designs of the ship show a door leading from the telegraph room to the shared bedroom. However, Harold Bride mentioned that the Titanic's construction had been delayed and was so behind schedule that they never had time to install a proper door, and thus a green curtain was used instead. This is shown in the film and is often incorrectly regarded as an error. See more »
Looking back, and I'm sure Tom Lynskey and crew can attest to this, it is crazy to think of how far we have come as filmmakers. From the typical "pretend war in the backyard" to now the acclaimed "The Last Signals," Tom Lynskey shines again.
I had been following this project for quite some time and have even had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Lynskey on this project. An exhausting, time consuming, film; the dedication and effort that the crew put into this clearly shows.
The acting is fantastic, the cinematography is great and the overall look of the film (black and white was a perfect choice!) makes it all the more professional and efficient. I look forward to more releases from Tom and the rest of the crew. Superb.
