Stepping Stones Part 4: Well look at you breaking the rules

Time is short and memory is vague, can I write a piece about each episode?

So Episode 4, written by Amy Flanighan and Nina Bailey, contains flashbacks. Which is naughty, soaps don’t have flashbacks.

It was also the episode which was nominated for a NASTA, which led to a nice little jolly somewhere.

Matt Clarke sign seals and delivers the episode; he takes Bruce from a one-joke character and given the room shines. Matt, also a student at Bournemouth asked me if he could have a role as an editor on the production as that was his specialism. Due to time constraints I had to say no, we needed him on set. I felt bad, but not that bad.

Looking at the party scene, not only did we get to leave the flat again, whoop whoop, but you can see that some people clearly weren’t up for another party shoot. And so the house is quite sparse.

Now point of confusion, is it a Halloween party, I really can’t remember. Because if so then that sets this in November and means that the whol series happened in the first term of Uni. So I choose to say no, they just chose to wear Halloweeny type costumes. Right.

The episode also over ran. Which was a hassle for putting it on youtube.

By this point communications between a lot of the crew had broken down. We were tired, and I under appreciated a lot of people. And at the risk of sounding whiney, didn’t always feel the love myself. To the extent that there was some who all communications broke down with for the final year of Uni.

And to those people I would like to say sorry and thank you.

At the end Mark Williams got a special jokey shout out in the credits. Whilst a lot of the first year runners were great, Sian as previously mentioned took one for the team. Mark went above and beyond, putting more hours in then were legal. Though this was back in the day he was reliable.

Be Seeing You.
