Isolation Stories: Behind The Scenes

Four short films all made and transmitted during the Coronavirus crisis. But how was it done, with nobody from the crew having any contact with the cast?

This final episode pays tribute to the unsung heroes who helped create a little bit of television history: the actors’ families taking on cameraman and woman duties - plus make-up, wardrobe, props and everything else a normal short would need.

We talk to the actors themselves about the experience of filming in their own homes, being directed remotely by directors, and we reveal the secrets behind this groundbreaking series of short films.
