Nick Dance BSC was nominated because “[he]… always likes to operate. Episode 2 of Our Girl is the most visual of the 5 x 1 hour episodes in the series…All of the series was either handheld or Steadicam. This episode had battle “conflict” situations. The helicopters and the heat and dust of South Africa (Afghanistan!) were all particularly challenging. There are certain scenes where high winds also made shooting particularly difficult and Nick was also under strict time constraints to complete the schedule”.
Fantastic news – DoP Nick Dance has received an Award for Excellence, from the Guild of Television Cameramen, for his work on BBC Army Medic series ‘Our Girl’ starring Lacey Turner. The annual award ceremony took place last Sunday, as part of the fun-filled event ‘A Day in the Country’ at Upper Aynho Grounds. These awards identify outstanding camerawork by individuals and are nominated by members of the Guild.
This is such a well-deserved accolade – well done Nick!
