How to score 3 (stars) in a row
Words – Howard Ella,
Joint Head of Production, Mammoth Screen
When we first began production of Noughts + Crosses in 2018 we were very conscious of the potential impact of such a large scale shoot. Our concerns didn’t just stem from the impacts of flying cast and a few core team from the UK, but also the levels of transport and sheer number of crew that we would be using on a daily basis.
We were also unsure as to what facilities would be available in Cape Town and the surrounding region and whether the industry in South Africa would be able to mirror the approach we have adopted in recent years in the UK through albert footprinting and certification.
Thankfully, there was no need for concern about an awareness to sustainability and its role in the TV industry.
