Bring your lunch pack to the HUBS Hideout for this year’s Children’s Media Network Scotland showcase. Producer Simon Parsons (Maramedia) will be speaking to Alix Wiseman (9 Story) about Maramedia’s first venture into children’s television with ‘Gudrun: The Viking Princess’ for CBeebies. Find out how the series was commissioned, and how a production company known for its natural history output has made the transition into Children’s content. And discover the challenges of capturing the performances of not only child actors, but animals and Viking re-enactors, then bringing them together in the same shot, all with a little help from a green screen and some VFX.
