Associate Producer, Illuminations Media: Almeida Theatre’s Hamlet 2017

Introduction

We recorded for the BBC The Almeida Theatre  production of Hamlet from London’s Harold Pinter Theatre

Working with John Wyver and screen director Rhodri Huw, as associate producer i was directly responsible for the multi camera recording of the play and the corrections to the lighting for television.

Robert Icke’s staging employed radio microphones for all the actors.  As a result the  performance became more  intimate than is usual for stage drama with the cast having less need to project. The broadcast works more like a studio drama or a film and feels less like a conventional stage performance in front of an audience.

Hamlet will be screened on BBC in 2018
