Reading time: 1 minutes and 16 seconds

Listen to the latest episode of the Directors UK podcast!

This episode comes from our members’ masterclass with BAFTA-award winning multi-camera director Nikki Parsons. We take a deep dive into Nikki's work directing Strictly Come Dancing and the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, exploring how the full process from rehearsals to live performances comes together.

Moderated by award-winning live entertainment and multi-camera director Tim van Someren, we also discuss how multi-camera directors manage creative leadership on set, collaborate with crew and talent, and work with new technology such as CuePilot to help them navigate complex live broadcasts.

To go behind the scenes with Nikki and Tim, listen to this epside on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Soundcloud or wherever you get your podcasts!
