Role / Project description: Number 1 Newton Avenue is a live-action and animation series set at a fictitious tenement building called 'Number 1 Newton Avenue' and in each episode, we meet some of the families that live there. The show is being made to help pre-school children with their maths skills. We are filming 26 x 7 minute episodes, each one focusing on a different aspect of maths. Over the course of the series, we will meet 4 key children with their accompanying adult, as they solve every-day problems using maths skills. The show will have a variety of characters, cultures and relationships portrayed, which will fully represent a multi-cultural, inner city, tenement community.
The filming will take place in Glasgow and we're scheduled to begin shooting on Sunday 20th September, until mid-November. There will be approximately 7 record dates for each adult cast member during this period.
