The “TV Drama: In Practice” panel will be a casual and frank conversation with 6 Cinematographers about working in what many perceive as a golden age of TV Drama Cinematography. Topics to be discussed will include “Breaking into TV drama”, “Shooting Block 1 vs Shooting a later Block”, “Bringing your taste to later seasons of an established show”, “Choosing the right crew for Block 1 + Inheriting a crew for later Blocks”, “Managing your time on set + How fast you need to work”, “Collaborating with The Director vs Collaborating with The Showrunner”, “Ambition, Managing expectations and The TV Drama Schedule” and hopefully a lot more.

The Panel will be lead by Stephen Murphy BSC, ISC (Mr and Mrs Smith, Atlanta) and he will be joined by Gavin Finney BSC (Good Omens, The Undeclared War), Ed Moore BSC (Hijack, Somewhere Boy), Catherine Goldschmidt (House of the Dragon, A Discovery of Witches), Vanessa Whyte (Ted Lasso, All Creatures Great and Small), and Simona Susnea (Heart Stopper, Audry).

Each of the Cinematographers is at a different place in their Drama career so the panel should provide an interesting discussion from many points of view.
