Snatch, The Inside Story

‘Making Brad (Pitt) look rough was hard work. We offered him debauched nights out, but he opted for make-up.’ 

Fae Hammond, the make-up artist on Guy Ritchie’s gangster movie ‘Snatch!’ had a tough job, hanging out on set with Brad Pitt, Vinnie Jones and Jason Flemyng. And so did I, when I was commissioned to edit this photographic book that tells the inside story of the movie shoot.

I interviewed all the cast and crew about what really went on behind the scenes. Gambling, pranks, and competitive press-ups were all part of the backstage antics. Extras ‘playing’ gangsters told stories that rang a little too true to real-life events.
