Emmy nominated production designer, Will Hughes-Jones (Bridgerton) and Standby Art Director, Dave Crewdson, will be joining Chris Bailey from the Plymouth College of Art to give a live script breakdown, share how they prepare a scene and collaborate with other departments, and discuss the various routes into production design.
In regency England appearances are everything and for the powerful Bridgerton family they face the constant battle between their duty and desires.
Inspired by the Julia Quinn novels, wealth, lust, betrayal and honour are navigated by those seeking to stay ahead in an English society filled with secrets and gossip.
As television’s great disruptor, if Netflix is to take on a Regency period drama, expect it to try and reinvent the form. Enter Bridgerton, the streaming service’s Christmas big-hitter and a fresh take on the decades-old style.
For all the show’s traditional draws, such as the opulence of the debutante season, high-society scandal and growls of “I demand satisfaction”, a modern-day sensibility has been smartly woven throughout.
