Join Elizabeth Karlsen, Helen Scott and Sandy Powell as they discuss craft department preparations for Mothering Sunday, the new production from Number 9 Films and Film4. Scheduled to shoot in the UK this autumn, producer Karlsen, production designer Scott and Oscar-winning costume designer Powell will explain how they are adapting their ways of working in order to safeguard cast and crew in the time of Covid-19.

This session on the practical ramifications of the coronavirus is aimed at those working in film who are gearing up to return to production. Following the discussion, time will be allowed for Q & A.

Mothering Sunday is an adaption of Graham Swift’s intimate novella by the same name set between the two world wars, starring Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country, The Crown) and Odessa Young (Shirley, Assassination Nation, A Million Little Pieces) with Olivia Coleman and Colin Firth.

This ScreenSkills Safe Return to Set Seminar is part of a series designed to complement the Working Safely During Covid-19 guidance produced by a working party for film and high-end television convened by the British Film Commission (BFC) as part of the BFI’s Screen Sector Task Force. The session is supported by ScreenSkills using National Lottery funds awarded by the BFI as part of the Future Film Skills programme.
