Actor Colin Morgan commented: “The guys at The Mill have produced consistently fantastic FX on the show. This award is long overdue and well earned.”

Writer Julian Murphy added: “Merlin is all about bringing the production values of the cinema into the home and now we’re shooting Series 4 on 35mm this enables us to make the series more epic than ever.”

Merlin‘s producer Julian Murphy explained the decision to shoot the new series on 35mm film in our recent interview, saying: “We use a lot of CGI and it gets more complicated each series. It’s always been our intention for the show to have a storybook look, we realised film would work better. We really had no choice for the CGI we’re now doing.”
