We're often asked what goes on behind the scenes at Open2Study. We asked director Csilla Csongvay to make use of her phone's camera while filming Marine and Antarctic Science and give us a sneak peak what happens behind the screen.
Camera Operator Scott sets up the gear, ready for a day's filming.
Presenter Craig studies the script...

The acrylic screen waits in quiet anticipation.
Jess takes her place, and filming begins.

Csilla's director's nook, with a screen for easy viewing and well within reach of the presenter.
At the end of recording, Jess gets involved in the cleaning. Then the screen returns to its quiet patience, waiting for a new day's filming to begin.
