PODCAST — The Real Vanishing Act — Missing Millionairess: A Factual Masterclass with Thomas Meadmore, Nic Guttridge and Sophie Robinson

Reading time: 1 minutes and 4 seconds

Tune in to the latest episode of the Directors UK podcast!

This episode comes from our members’ masterclass with director, producer and editor Thomas Meadmore and documentary story consultant Nic Guttridge who joined us to discuss the making of true-crime ITV feature documentary The Real Vanishing Act — Missing Millionairess.

Thomas and Nic were joined by award-winning documentary director and Directors UK member Sophie Robinson, and they shared a fascinating insight into how they used story mapping to create the structure and narrative for the documentary, the importance of trust-building when gaining access to contributors and how they blended archive content with current events so that the story unfolded in front of the audience’s eyes.

We hope you enjoy this deep dive into feature documentary making!
