The success of this project can be directly attributed to clear direction from PBS and to the individual people that make up the Evolve team. Challenging production logistics behind a massive undertaking like this project required our small, dedicated team to pull off the impossible.
The budget, the production schedule, the project duration and the intricacies of the casting and logistics of this year-long project required detailed execution and resourcefulness from our team members.
Jen Lewis, our Senior Producer on this project, said the production team was on a constant one-step-ahead schedule that became a delicate juggling act.
“Because we were moving to so many locations and never really staying at the same place for long, we had one part of the production team move ahead of the film crew to open the next location, while another part of the team stayed behind at each location to close it out, clean it, and wrap things up. That was the only way we could get it done.”
