Our “meet the team Tuesdays” continue with the talented Alice Troughton, our director for the second block of shooting, i.e. episodes 3, 4, and 5.
What’s covered in these episodes? Let’s see…
Sept-Tours. Meeting Ysabeau. Witchwater. BUNDLING. Should I go on??
When I started this TV lark, I didn’t realize that directors on series changed at fairly regular intervals. That makes sense, in retrospect, because the directors are also the ones who do all the post-production editing (including working with sound and special effects). So while the first block director is finishing up with shooting this week, Alice is just starting with block 2. Then, as the first block moves into post-production, Alice will keep shooting the second block through the rest of this year before heading to the editing studio as the as-yet-to-be-named director for Block 3 takes the helm. Complicated, yes?
What’s not complicated at all is that Alice is a PERFECT choice to direct this show. She comes to us with credits that include directing Dr. Who, Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Merlin, Atlantis, and The Living and the Dead. Pretty impressive resume!
Once again, ladies and gentlemen, we are in very good hands. I know that you will all welcome Alice to the All Souls Family. You can follow her on twitter at @alicetroughton, and on Instagram @alicetroughton1408.
