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