I was the DoP on this popular CBBC Drama series Wolfblood Secrets. The drama is currently being transmitted at 4pm weekdays on CBBC.

The drama is a follow on from the popular Wolfblood series, Directed by Pip Banyard and Series Produced by John Piper. Here’s a brief outline of the series:

The Wolfblood secret is out, and the humans are taking precautions. Jana is brought in for questioning by The Organisation to find out Wolfblood secrets. But is that what they are really after?

We shot the drama on 2 x Sony F55 cameras with a combination of Angenieux Optimo zoom lenses and a set of Arri Ultra Primes. We also utilised a Romford Baker slider to create some movement in the shots.

The location was an old school, and the main filming room was very small which created some lighting challenges. Pip was after a dark and moody look and wanted the shots to look quite dramatic. I kept the lighting low and used a selection of HMI’s to light from the outside to create some interesting shadows on the background. You can view some clips on the CBBC website.
