After 22 days of filming I’ve wrapped on the finale episodes of ITV’s Brief Encounters. Tech is fun to play with but humans are better. So I’m happy to report that getting to play with the train set of skilled creatives on this show, behind and in front of the camera, many of them new to me, has been a absolute pleasure.
None more so than the creators of the show, Fay Rusling and Oriane Messina, who were often on set providing constant humour and bribery with their “sack of sin” (chocolates).
Here’s a recce shot with a helpful crew member standing in. I snapped it with my mobile, an invaluable tool.
Now it’s back to London and into the edit. I’m hopeful that the excellent scripts telling this funny and moving story of friendship will find their audience.
