Doctor Who (Fan Made) Crew Update: Thomas Parker


Richard Holliday (Producer), Mark Lever (Director of Photography) and Gary Thomas (Director) are very happy to confirm their latest addition to the crew, Thomas Parker as the Behind the Scenes Videographer on their first day of filming of upcoming fan made Doctor Who project ‘Reverence of the Daleks’.

Thomas Parker is an award winning filmmaker who focuses on cinematography and video editing aspects of production in corporate and entertainment film making. His academic background began with a triple distinction* extended media diploma which then led to obtaining a first class honours in Television and Film production (creative skillset accredited) from the University of Portsmouth. He has a vast amount of experience in viral, corporate and feature filmmaking in order to deliever successful videos to suit clients’ needs and expectations. He’s experienced with cameras such as the Arri Alexa/Amira, Black Magic (4K), Sony Cameras FS700, PMW-F55, EX3, Canon C-300 and a variety of DSLR’s. As a video editor, he’s experienced with a range of well-known editing software such as Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Software and Sony Vegas.

Reverence of the Daleks puts the Doctor at odds with UNIT’s latest experimental plaything – a supposedly ‘docile’ Dalek, but when the experiment goes awry, it is the Doctor alone who must stop the Dalek from escaping a high-tech, secret UNIT compound and wreaking extermination across London.

Thomas Parker will be the Behind the Scenes Videographer on Day 1 of filming ‘Doctor Who: Reverence of the Daleks’. His job will be to provide plenty of material for Richard and Mark to produce plenty of behind the scenes videos for you to get insight into what it took for us to make the episode. There should be plenty of interesting stuff for him to film as we’ll be shooting several shots for VFX to be added, a Dalek and a TARDIS and filming in several locations inside the Epsom Coaches grounds including offices, a yard and a testing room.

Here is an example of a behind the scenes film he shot for short film, Extra Time:

The first day of filming ‘Reverence of the Daleks’ will take place on Saturday April 29th in Ewell West, Surrey. Currently signed up as part of the cast is Elliot Stammers as The Doctor; Elise Stammers as The Doctor’s companion, Jennifer; Charlie Ross as Captain Reynods and Rob Lever as Soldier 1. Crew members already confirmed include Rene Toussaint (Website) as Sound Recordist; Stephan Burn (Facebook | Website) as Behind the Scenes Photographer.

Day 2 & 3 are yet to be confirmed but will likely to take place between May/June.

The fan made Doctor Who episode will hopefully premiere at Charlie Ross’ Doctor Who themed birthday event in June with Matthew Waterhouse (Doctor Who) and Katy Manning (Doctor Who). Richard Holliday and Mark also have plans to feature it at Who’s at the Playhouse in Epsom, Surrey where Louise Jameson, Colin Baker and John Leeson are just some of the stars set to star.

Mark and Gary have worked with Thomas Parker previously on their upcoming time travel short film, Extra Time, which they are in the process of putting the final touches to get it ready for the festival circuit. Thomas Parker filmed the interviews featured in the video below and the technical and cast rehearsals footage.
