The 90th Academy Awards
The Oscars 2018, the 90th Academy Awards broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. While I didn't attend the ceremony in person this year, I did work on the UK's Live coverage, filmed from Sky's Studios in Osterley.
Work on this production culminated in a 12 hour overnight shoot, broadcast live on Sky Cinema. Presented by Alex Zane and featuring guests: Rachel Riley, Boyd Hilton, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Anna Smith, the show was in sync with the US broadcast and featured a number of celebrity interviews live from the Red Carpet.
As talent runner, I primarily looked after the presenter, Alex Zane, while also catering for sofa guests and assisting the floor team. Sticking to an incredibly tight schedule, the live broadcast had to be kept in sync with our American correspondent, and therefore the shoot was somewhat complex. However, as one of the most talked about award shows in history, the 90th Academy Awards proved a resounding success, and were a pleasure to be a part of.
