BBC Drama - Doctors

May 20, 2016

I was delighted to direct my first block of DOCTORS for BBC Drama. The Cast & Crew were amazing! 17-25 pages a day is a challange but when you get it in the can and looks quite good, it's a real buzz! The regulars are great and  I bought in some people I know too! You can watch NOT EDUCATING RITA, MRS BUTTERWORTH, WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW on my TV page http://www.carolinagiammetta.com/television/

ELECTRICITY

October 5, 2015

Was delighted to work with writer Miriam Battye (Bruntwood Shortlister) on a thrilling new commssioned play 'Electricity'. The play was developed over the last year with the raw talent & fearless voices of NYT Playing Up company, performed at The Arcola Theatre Main House.

Electricity

Four young people on the cusp of adulthood are hurtling towards self-destruction. When tragedy strikes one morning outside Pimlico station, it sets off a chain reaction forcing them to reassess their lives. Miriam Battye's breakneck drama explores the contradictions and chemical reactions within us all, and asks whether we really have control over what we feel.

CIVIL WAR TRAILER 2015

July 31, 2015

I was asked to come up with an idea for a teaser/advert for the Civil War Trail films. I thought there was no other way to try and give the viewer a taste of the experience of what it might be like to experience doing the trail, than actually seeing it.

Inspired by Danny Boyle's journey down the Thames at the beginning of the 2012 Olympic opening, I decided to use an air-wheel and a drone to zoom around the town looking at our the Argumented Reality App will bring the films to life!

Great thanks to the work of Chris at UpperCut!

CIVIL WAR FILMS 2014/2015

July 30, 2015

I was commissioned by Spool Films to direct a series of 28 short period films about the British Civil War involving CGI, SFX and VFX.

We shot over 4 weeks in August with a cast of 100 plus and upteen locations! It was an incredible experience and gave me the opportunity to play around with ideas and story telling techniques that I’d never had the opportunity to do before.

Alfie Biddle did an amazing job as DOP, joined by his great team. An incredible job by Sally Cleary who I worked with to cast 100+ actors in 3 days! Lisa Duncan & Alexie Kharibian for an amazing job with the use of the minimal period costumes they had, Leona Seymour working solo on makeup and hair/wigs and the very talented and hard working art department team Charlotte Ball and Emma Smith.

Our incredible Spool producers Mary Kearns and Russ Noon bought the whole thing together with the smallest budget ever!

Described by press “ Anyone would think you were on the set of a Hollywood feature film!’

Six of the films will be screened in a purpose built cinema in the new Civil War Centre and 22 will be downloadable on the CIVIL WAR TRAIL app.

The films are a collection of wonderful stories about real people during that time.

IMDB SCRIPT TO SCREEN AWARD 2013

July 23, 2015

My short film script ‘Holy Cannelloni’ was nominated for an IMDB Script to Screen award earlier this year. It was great to see the script read out loud on stage by actors. I didn’t cast them or rehearse them so it was fantastic to see what they had delivered just from the script alone!
Holy Cannelloni is teaser short film for my feature film Pizza Face.
Thanks you Bath Film Festival  for the nomination and a great night!
