WELCOME

elcome to the British Academy Television Craft Awards in 2019. The Awards celebrate the very best in television crafts and our truly amazing nominees, who are admired across the world for their exceptional talent and skill. We extend huge congratulations to you all and wish you the best of luck tonight. At its best, television can play a unique role in our lives, helping to shape our understanding of the world around us and our fellow human beings. It has been another standout year for British practitioners, who continue to contribute hugely to our industry’s hard-earned reputation for excellence. We extend particular congratulations to Emma Thomas, an inspirational woman who has made an outstanding contribution to the television industry for more than 30 years. Emma has consistently demonstrated immense skill and tireless dedication in her work as a script supervisor, making her one of the most respected in our industry. Not only has she amassed an extraordinary body of work, from The Mark of Cain, Boy A, Luther and Tyrant to Bad Education and Birds of a Feather, but she has also been exceptionally generous towards the next generation through her mentorship and guidance. In recognition, we present Emma with one of the Academy’s highest honours, the Special Award, and thank her for her invaluable contribution to the television industry. Central to the work we do at BAFTA is offering development opportunities and support to emerging talent. Whatever their background or circumstances, we work to nurture an upcoming workforce of diverse individuals through our learning and new talent initiatives, including BAFTA’s Scholarships, Crew and Breakthrough Brits. May we take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful sponsors and Academy partners who make this evening possible. We wish you all an enjoyable evening.

EMMA THOMAS T H E S PE C I A L AWA R D

The role of script supervisor is an integral part of any television or film production, but itÔs also a craft that is seldom recognised with awards. Emma Thomas is widely regarded as one of the best in her field and has made an incredible impact on British television and film across her 30-plus years in the business, not least for her mentoring of other women in the industry. This evening, both her work and her craft are recognised with a Special Award, one of BAFTAÔs highest honours.

I

t was in the studio audience of Terence Frisby’s 1976 sitcom Lucky Feller where a young Emma Thomas would get her first taste of the television industry. Regarded as a dry run for Only Fools and Horses, the early David Jason comedy about two brothers in south-east London, piqued an interest and perseverance that would serve her well for a career spanning more than 30 years. “I just knew I had to find a way to get into all this using what skills I had,” says Thomas, recalling her wide-eyed excitement at experiencing the intricacies of making a television show. Inspired further by her sister who was “having more fun” at drama school, she applied to college four times, eventually training at Central TV in Nottingham on its Script Supervisor course, specialising in drama production. One of her first jobs was at Elstree Studios on Jim Henson’s The Muppet Show, where she would meet Hollywood stars including James Coburn and Gene Kelly. “I thought I’d died and gone to heaven… although I was essentially working for a bunch of puppets!” says Thomas, with a giggle.

ÒI JUST KNEW I HAD TO FIND A WAY TO GET INTO ALL THIS USING WHAT SKILLS I HAD.Ó

BAFTA’s recognition of Thomas with the Special Award not only celebrates her tremendous career but also spotlights her craft, one that is seldom honoured. The importance of the role of a script supervisor cannot be understated. Among their duties are checking the script for inconsistencies; keeping abreast of the shooting schedule, particularly ensuring there’s enough time to shoot the necessary coverage; and recording detailed notes and log sheets on dialogue, action, costume, props, camera details and so on for continuity, ensuring the captured scenes are ready for the edit and post-production stages. Thomas notes that one of the key components of her work is “neat handwriting”. Thomas fluctuates between television and film and has worked on more than 50 productions to date. “I’m still pinching myself,” she says. “People keep ringing me up and I keep saying, ‘Yes!’” Her credits include Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, My Hero, Luther, Bad Education, two of The Canterbury Tales modern adaptations (‘The Knight’s Tale’ and ‘The Man of Law’s Tale’), Benidorm and Tyrant, among others (see box out). Already this year she has added Soon Gone: A Windrush Chronicle and the new Four Weddings and a Funeral series to her

expansive teleography. Thomas also spent 10 years working intermittently on The Bill, where she first met director Sam Miller (This Life, Luther) who helped to propel her career. Stints on films such as Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens followed, where she served as “second-second-second” supervisor and responsible for Chewbacca’s left ear, which any Wookie fan worth their salt will know is no mean feat under all that fur. Indeed, continuity can be a tricky beast. Thomas recalls having to recreate bloody handprints in a makeshift tunnel when cleaners in Moscow were a little eager to sanitise the set. Meanwhile, the length of cigarettes has perhaps been one of her biggest challenges. “The props department would cut them at all different lengths,” she explains.

Thomas is the first script supervisor to receive such an award from BAFTA, and is cited as being one of the very best in her field, actively mentoring other women in the industry. She is a volunteer board member for Women in Film and Television and is passionate about spreading the word of female achievements in the industry. “It’s wonderful to be on set now and see female camera operators and lighting technicians – there’s no department that doesn’t have a female presence,” she says. “I’m so proud to receive this award. This is going to be amazing for all the script supervisors out there.”

We are delighted to be in our eighth year of sponsoring the Breakthrough Talent award. The television industry has never been busier, presenting all behind-the-camera talent with both enormous opportunities and new challenges, as they work on ever more ambitious and demanding productions. Hence, nurturing and guiding both new and established talent also presents us with new opportunities and challenges. Being part of the British Academy Television Craft Awards is a perfect fit for us to rise to these challenges, and supporting this particular category speaks directly to our ethos of nurturing talent at every level. Over the past seven years, it has been a delight to see the many ongoing achievements of the previous nominees and winners, and this year’s nominees will no doubt go on to similar successes. It is also wonderful to see the range and diversity of talent represented in the category. Hopefully, their success will be an inspiration to others joining the industry. As agents our aim is to develop and sustain a truly diverse industry for all those working behind the camera, and our association with the Breakthrough Talent award is key to achieving this.

3 Mills Studios is proud to continue its support of the Director: Fiction category at the British Academy Television Craft Awards, in what has been another outstanding year for high-end British television drama. By partnering with BAFTA on these Awards, we are highlighting the work of those behind the camera and helping the charity fulfil its remit to support, promote and develop the art forms of the moving image.

We hope the exceptional creative talent in this category will serve as an inspiration to the future directors of British television – and 3 Mills Studios will be here

ScreenSkills, formerly known as Creative Skillset, is the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen industries. We provide insight, career development and training to help grow and sustain the skilled and inclusive workforce that is the foundation stone of the UK’s global screen success. The High-end TV Skills Fund, managed by ScreenSkills, invests in career development opportunities for freelancers and talent working at all levels, from new entrants to executives, in high-end television. The fund was set up in 2013 when it was agreed that productions utilising the new high-end television tax credit would support training. Since then, more than £11 million has been invested in skills. At a time when high-end television production is booming, it is even more critical that we continue to identify skills gaps and fund the practical, hands-on training programmes that develop talent behind the camera. Quality crew across the craft and technical departments – such as photography and lighting – are fundamental to maintaining a sustainable industry that
