Gorilla and Bait Studio are hugely proud to be involved in the feature length television drama A Poet in New York as part of BBC Wales’ season of special Dylan Thomas programmes.
Written by Andrew Davies and featuring a wonderful performance by Tom Hollander as Dylan Thomas, the Modern Television production for BBC Wales and BBC 2 explores how the troubled writer died in smog-ridden New York on a November day in 1953. The film was set in NYC but filmed entirely in Cardiff and Dylan’s home in Laugharne. Our Bait Studio team were tasked with using VFX to create the look and feel of 1950s NYC – and Gorilla’s Emyr Jenkins was on hand to seamlessly blend and grade their efforts as well as the entire film on Baselight.
Having already premiered on BBC Wales to great critical reviews, A Poet in New York is being broadcast across the UK on BBC2 on Sunday 18th May, 9pm. Watch the below trailer for a glimpse of this powerful film.
