  • Sherlock Holmes Castle

    Before the weather got ugly here, I got to shoot an odd and interesting place called Gillette Castle. I used the Pocket 6K and shot in 6K BMRAW. I edited in Adobe Premiere Pro and graded in DaVinci Resolve.

    Gillette Castle State Park straddles the towns of East Haddam and Lyme, Connecticut. It sits high above the Connecticut River. The castle was originally a private residence designed by William Gillette, an American actor who is most famous for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on stage. Gillette lived at this estate from 19191937. The estate was purchased by the state of Connecticut in 1943 for a price of $5,000. It has been described as being designed in a medieval gothic, or an "American fairy tale mixed with European flair" style, or as "a weird blending of Victorian and Arts and Crafts".
