Martha Mauden & Co

Three whirlwind days of shooting, preceded by two mad weeks of pre-production, and an exhausting but happy shoot has wrapped on Martha Mauden & Co. I’m relieved to find that art directing in the UK is exactly the same as the US: Just as demanding, just as rewarding, and just as much running up and down stairs with bizarre props and standing on chairs wishing my arms were an inch longer. Highlights of MM&Co were turning party food mouldy and researching retro video games.

Congratulations to an excellent crew, and kudos to producer Lorna Gatherer Ford, who really went above and beyond.
