With previous credits as a “computer visual artist” and “surveillance artist” in the likes of Spooks and espionage film Criminal, CCTV director Mark Doman has helped to carve out this recent role in the television landscape.

A CCTV director is responsible for replicating the style of surveillance footage and will shoot high-quality footage from long distances using a combination of GoPros, small cameras, zoom lenses and underwater cameras, which is then compressed to lower resolutions to produce a surveillance aesthetic.
