Season 4 of Poldark aired last night on BBC1, with Nick Dance BSC behind the Lens for the entire series.

Directed by Joss Agnew & starring Aidan Turner as the inimitable Poldark, writer Debbie Horsfield says Season 4 will draw on the final third of Winston Graham’s sixth Poldark book The Four Swans and all of book seven, The Angry Tide.

The action of series four will run until the Christmas period of 1799. The next book – The Stranger from the Sea, which is the eighth in the series of 12 – starts in 1810, a leap of more than ten years. This will be the start of series five, which RadioTimes.com revealed is expected to be the final series of the show.

Cinematographer Tim Sidell’s latest collaboration with director Magnus Hardner (B Reel) sees audio come to life… Storytell focuses on a series of situations in which the on screen listener is enveloped by the sound of storytelling.

Shot over 3 days on location in Stockholm & Palma, we see a woman sensually feeling the words, as well as an emotional man able to do little but tear up and take in the narrator…

In the world of music promos Tim collaborated once again with director Ivana Bobic (Riff Raff) on their third promo for artist Sigrid, shot on location in Mexico over one long night, the track is called High Five and is as quirkily energetic as Sigrid herself.

Costume Designer Grace Snell worked across the recently released commercial for Bwin – Who Stole the Cup?

The spot centres on an audacious heist taking place at a glamorous high end event, with the chief thieves none other than football legends Cafu, Vicente del Bosque, Stefan Effenberg, and Diego Maradona. It features a sprawling cast showcasing Kremlin uniforms, luxurious gowns, impeccable tuxedos, a full brass band, shifty waiters… but no clear culprit.

Directed by Pedro Martín-Calero, the film was produced through Blink.

In preparation for the World Cup, ITV produced this promo designed by Tom Gander – FIFA World Cup 2018

Directed by Hauke Hilberg Tom designed and created a multitude of props that feature throughout the commercial. Various locations were dressed with one perfect location imperfectly smaller than necessary, resulting in Tom creating ‘marble’ plinths and statues at a third of the size to give the illusion of height and depth.

Tom is currently designing a short for director Ben Liam Jones (for whom he designed Sky Movies building a living room that evolves through a 25 year period and NatWest: Wedding).
