It’s a lovely morning with the September sun shining as I reach the Bay Studios in Swansea on my first visit to our three trainees who are working on the Da Vinci’s Demons production. I haven’t been caught out by the traffic cameras on Fabian Way, and I didn’t get lost…it’s looking good so far!
Cyfle currently have three trainees working on the latest series of Da Vinci’s Demons, which are Beca Williams (Art Department on Set Trainee), Daniel Vico (Special Effects Trainee) and Ffion McCarthy (Locations Trainee).
There are some exciting times ahead for filming in Wales, with many productions being made here already, and more on the way with big projects such as Pinewood Studios establishing their Welsh studios later this year. All these productions need crew, and Wales Screen is one of the main places they go to find them!
We have been told that Wales Screen will shortly be re-launching its database and website, so if you are freelance crew or a facility owner based in Wales, CLICK HERE TO make sure your details are registered. Read More
