When a plan comes together


The short story is, we have lovely craft client whose magazine we produce and they were after a weekly online TV show. The show would feature their star designer, northern lass Clare, chatting to guests and showing readers how to make some very pretty things.

We bounded up the stairs, two at a time, to Wendy, the camera-woman, editing goddess who resides upstairs and told her the score. We looked at the space available and came up with this rather cool concept sketch of how the set would look.

When we got the green light, we got in ace set designer Rich and our resident handyman Chris (who welcomed the break from mending soap dispensers) to turn our concept into a real-life set…

Our client sent up a lorry load of gorgeous bits and bobs to place in the shelves and we were ready to go. Clare arrived, laden with crafty projects and spent four solid days filming, by herself or accompanied by other chatty designers.

Wendy disappeared into the editing suite for a week or more and emerged with eight superb episodes complete with fancy animated sting. It was loved by all! A most exciting project and we get to do it all over again very soon…
