‘HM the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Visit to Her Armed Forces’

June 2002 – Portsmouth Naval Base (Client: Ministry of Defence)

A one-hour show for the Queen and an invited service audience to showcase the Armed forces at work. The challenges were to depict a fully tri-service story (i.e. including ships and aircraft) on a green field site and show every job, every rank and every cap badge in an engaging, credible and entertaining outdoor event. I spent 4 months researching the background detail of the services as I wrote the script and directed 600 troops on 4 separate stage-sets over a 5-day rehearsal period. I directed all the studio footage, shooting of original material and editing and collation of library stock. I called the entire show including VT, Live cameras, Sound, LX, actors, vehicles, set movements. I also designed the t-shirt!
