Darrell will show excerpts from shows he has shot and discuss his processes.
Examples will be shown from projects such as Winners and Losers, Satisfaction and Mr and Mrs Murder. He will talk about how he sets up the style of a TV Series and how he maintains that look over the many shooting months that follow.
