A Very English Scandal, BBC Drama

Working on this BBC TV Drama, I was responsible for the organising of the art department office and its materials, placing orders, receiving/making deliveries, as well as completing art department money allowance forms. 

During the position, I was also required to help each member of the team to ensure deadlines were reached. This meant regularly assisting in the measuring of rooms and recording of spacial features.

My work varied greatly from one day to the next. I was able to make a multitude of props during my time on the production, working with the graphic and props departments. Working on location for a lot of the shooting period, I was also put in charge of box cover-ups, which meant working with the set painters and art director, and also assisted with much of the set dressing and organisation of props. 

When working in the office, I completed white card models for production meetings and technical drawings for set dressers. I very much enjoyed the responsibility of this, and the opportunity to work closely with the Art Director to meet all technical requirements.
