Outlander Inside S2 Epi9

Je Suis Prest!
If you haven’t checked out the Outlander Community Website, you should. Starz opens up and shares an inside look into the episodes. We decided to share some of what they provide. Enjoy!

THE FRASER CAMP

The scenes at the Fraser camp were filmed on a working farm in Crieff, Scotland. The location was perfect for these scenes in particular, since it had rolling hills right outside the buildings. In addition to being the picturesque Scotland we’ve all missed, the Fraser men could set up camp on the hillside and train right next to the barn. The location also served a practical purpose, as scenes could easily be moved inside or outside depending on the weather.

THE FRASER FLAG

Created by the Art Department, this flag is the national flag of Scotland—St. Andrew’s Cross or The Saltire—but embellished with the Fraser clan motto, “Je Suis Prest” or “I am ready.” It can be seen flying above the Fraser camp. As for the national flag’s origins, the white cross comes from St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, who was crucified on an X-shaped cross—an important symbol of his martyrdom that was adopted by the Kingdom of Scotland. For the bright blue background, legend says that over 700 years after St. Andrew’s death, King Óengus II’s troops witnessed a huge white cross in the blue sky on the morning of an important battle. Emboldened by the symbol, the men rallied to victory and the flag of Scotland was born.

STORYBOARDS

Storyboards are an important tool sometimes used in the pre-production process. The director works with a storyboard artist to plan out each shot required to shoot a particular scene and tell the story. The storyboards are then shared with the entire crew, so everyone has an idea of the director’s vision for the scene and can plan accordingly.

CLAIRE AND JAMIE’S BARN

The interior of the barn where Jamie and Claire sleep at the camp was built on a sound stage. The Art Department and Greens Department did an amazing job of making the building look old and deteriorating by adding vines and moss to the stone walls and even an old tree growing up through the middle of the room! It needed to feel abandoned, since it only serves as temporary housing that our heroes find on their journey to meet up with Prince Charlie and the Highland Army. The set felt so organic and real, as if nature had consumed the building over the centuries.

VISUAL EFFECTS: BEFORE AND AFTER

The Highland Army was 2,400 clansmen strong at this point during the war. Crowds of this size could never be achieved on a production budget, so Visual Effects came to the rescue. Even Bonnie Prince Charlie wasn’t delusional enough to fight with such a small army!
