We've now set up a blog here at Purple Flame to allow us to keep you up-to-date with the inner workings and thoughts of the team. We're hoping that the blogs will give you an insight into what we're up to as we travel around the world filming all kinds of stories.

It will be a mixture of discussion of issues that we're involved in, updates on the production process and a few light-hearted articles on the day-to-day development of a production. Keep checking back for new blogs and feel free to add in comments to any of our articles!
