The HMS M33 team
07 November 2014
In factual TV there’s one thing every producer yearns for: good interviewees. People involved in what you’re filming who love what they’re doing, who can bring it to life with passion and commitment. Well, Maritime Films UK’s cup is overflowing when it comes to this project. Take Project Director Matthew Sheldon (picture.) Despite being involved in several other projects – which means he’s almost continuously on the move, day in, day out – he’s passionately committed to the project, totally, immersively involved. The on-site engineering team are great too, fully understanding the needs of TV, with Project Manager Martin Hobson coming back to give us an interview at the end of a 17 hour day. And conservation expert Jason Lowe is clearly fired up by the whole idea, of reaching back 100 years to stand in the footsteps of history. We’re lucky.
