What we’ve been up to…

Casting and producing

Spring for Twt productions has been all about casting and producing, kicking off with casting sixth formers to present a series of GCSE revision tips for Grain Media and BBC Bitesize. During the casting process, we were once again taken aback by the natural talent displayed by Welsh pupils and succeeded in casting pupils from Glantaf, Llanharri, Maes y Gwendraeth, Maes Garmon and Ysgol Morgan Llwyd for #meddwlarwaith.

From the academic to the practical. Working for Cracking Productions, we cast and produced a series of CPR training videos for the British Heart Foundation. Talented presenters Miriam Isaac and Alun Williams were at the helm.

Oli Wyn – brand new series to air on S4C March 2018

The Twt Productions team have been busy working on a brand new series for S4C’s children’s service, Cyw. The series introduces Cyw’s young viewers to all sorts of vehicles and is presented by a puppet called Oli Wyn. Our talented puppeteer and voice artist is Meilyr Siôn.

We’ve travelled all over Wales in search of some great vehicles to feature, including a Boat Hoist in Haverforwest, a Steam Train and Fire Engine in Aberystwyth, a JCB in Newport and a Transporter Lorry in Swansea, to name but a few.

Filming in the winter months is always a risk weather wise, but we managed to avoid the worst of it right up to our studio dates, when the snow closed in on us, meaning that we had to cancel our first day! But all’s well than ends well – the team managed to make it into work the following day.

The series will air on Fridays from March 30th, 2018



New Year – New Project

The Twt productions team is delighted to announce that we’ve just started pre-production on a brand new pre-school series for S4C’s Cyw service. The series will tap into young children’s delight with vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

We’re delighted to be working with National Autistic Society Cymru on this lovely series.

More details to follow.
