Screen Daily talk to Sarah Smith
How are you and the team all working on Ron’s Gone Wrong from home?
We have moved our operation entirely online. We have over 250 crew members working from home, predominantly in the UK. They are making Ron’s Gone Wrong from attics and living rooms. They use remote dial-ins to the CG pipeline, with directors and producers reviewing on Zoom.
It’s massive and in some ways absolute madness. Yet it’s also kind of wonderful. The patience, humour and diligence of our team is amazing and touching. It feels like we’re in the trenches together and there’s huge camaraderie. At the same time, we are in development on a theatrical slate for Warner Bros and a Christmas feature, which is much easier to do remotely.
