This year so far Svetlana has been providing her Steadicam and Trinity operating services, to many UK based drama’s and features, some highlights below:
Emily- DOP Nanu Segal
Delighted to share the news that Emma Mackey, Joe Alwyn, Fionn Whitehead and Emily Beecham have boarded director Frances O’Connor’s revitalisation of Emily Brontë’s origin story is now shooting.
“Frances’ storytelling is a breath of fresh air – attracting highly dynamic actors; each performing highly engaging characters, each provocative and just a touch dangerous; certainly, modern and spirited,” said Embankment’s Tim Haslam.
Describing Brontë’s “transformative, inspiring and exhilarating journey to womanhood,” Embankment said the film will “brim with energy — intimately capturing the emotional intensity and adrenalin of youth, with all its messy honesty, heartbreak, humor and fearlessness; matched by the scale of our stunning locations,” O’Connor added.
“Emily” is produced by David Barron, whose credits include “Harry Potter” films 4-8 and “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” as Piers Tempest and Jo Bamford at Tempo Productions (“Military Wives,” “Ordinary Love”) with Robert Connolly and Robert Patterson of Arenamedia (“Paper Planes,” “The Dry”).
Magpie murders- DOP Anna Valdez-Hanks
Anthony Horowitz’s best-selling murder mystery Magpie Murders is being turned into a six-part series, starring Tim McMullan and Lesley Manville.
The author has even adapted his own work for the small screen, while The Full Monty and The A Word director Peter Cattaneo takes the helm, as filming gets underway in Ireland and Suffolk. Here’s what we know so far about the twisty-turny crime thriller, which will be on BritBox in the UK and PBS Masterpiece in the US.
The plot of Magpie Murders revolves around editor Susan Ryeland (Lesley Manville) who’s given a tattered, unfinished manuscript by best-selling crime author Alan Conway.
Meanwhile, Tim McMullan stars as the clever and complex 1950s detective Atticus Pünd, who’s renowned for solving crimes in Conway’s fictional novels.
But Alan Conway’s latest murder mystery isn’t quite what it seems and hidden between the pages there lies another story that will end up changing Susan’s life. Look out for the fiendish modern twist!
The Colour Room- DOP Denson Baker
The Colour Room is the first major role for Phoebe Dynevor since Netflix hit Bridgerton and the actress is jumping straight into another period role in this true story as pioneering ceramic artist Clarice Cliff.
The film will see Clarice during her days in the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent in the 1920s before she went on to become one of the most famous Art Deco designers in the world.
The movie is directed by Claire McCarthy, who previously worked on The Luminaries, and is written by BAFTA-winning scriptwriter Claire Peate.
The Colour Room follows the life of English ceramic artist Clarice Cliff as she changes the way the workplace operates in the 20th century.
Clarice, played by Phoebe Dynevor, was a young factory working in the industrial midlands during the 1920s.
Ambitious and creative, she frequently moves from factory to factory putting her the household she shares with her widowed mother, played by Kerry Fox, under strain.
The now famous ceramicist was full of ideas at the time and took risks, impressing quirky factory owner Colley Shorter (Matthew Goode).
Her talent wins Clarice an apprentice to renowned art designer Fred Ridgeway (David Morrissey) and she moves on to design the Art Deco Bizarre range with the support of Colley and the other women in the factory.
Her hard work and success helps the factory survive in the midst of The Great Depression and she goes on to become a household name.
Before We Die – DOP Seppe Van Grieken
Now on 4OD is the brand new drama Before We Die – a remake of the Swedish original, with Lesley Sharp starring as Bristol-based detective Hannah Laing. Directed by Jan Matthys.
The six-part series based in Bristol follows Hannah as she sets out to catch those who murdered her colleague and lover Sean – however, soon finds herself conflicted when she discovers that her son is somehow involved in the investigation.
With the broadcaster having recently published various first-look images of the upcoming drama, which Lesley Sharp recently described in The Big RT Interview as a “concentrated version” of the Swedish series on which it’s based.
Inside Man – DOP Tony Slater Ling
BBC One’s upcoming drama mini-series features an all-star cast, including David Tennant, Lydia West and Stanley Tucci. The news of a new Steven Moffat project on the horizon is always something to celebrate. A co-production between BBC Studios and Netflix, the series will be available on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK – and on Netflix internationally.
Described as a four-part mini-series of 60-minute episodes, Inside Man is a character-driven drama that follows a prisoner on death row in the US, a Vicar in a quiet English town, and a maths teacher trapped in a cellar, as they cross paths in the most unexpected way.
How these characters relate to one another is yet to be discovered – but according to Netflix exec Chris Sussman, keeping this element of mystery is key to fully appreciating the show. In a statement, he said: “It’s impossible to say too much about Inside Man without giving away spoilers – so let’s just say the scripts are fiendishly clever, the cast is fantastic and at this point in time nobody but Steven [Moffat, creator and writer] knows how it’s going to end.”
