Setting the Scene for Poldark

Shooting on Poldark starts on 14 April, but behind the scenes people have been busy working on the project for several months. Two such people are the Production Designer and Art Director.

Production Designer Catrin Meredydd started working on Poldark back in December.The Production Designer is responsible for the entire Art Department and is crucial for realising the Director's vision by providing believable surroundings in which the story can be told. Recently, Catrin has been the Production Designer for Broadchurch as well as The Fades and the Kenny Everett biopic Best Possible Taste.

Art Director Beckie Harvey, who started working on Poldark in January, has been Art Director for Holby City, Derek and Monroe. The Art Director works out all the props needed for the shoot and commissions any special effects and props like horse-drawn carriages. She also organises the casting of all the animals - that'll include Garrick then.

Prior to Poldark Catrin and Beckie worked together on From Here to There, the highly anticipated BBC drama set in Manchester in 1996.
