Some Girls 2, BBC3, Arri Alexa

VMI have supplied equipment on Hat Trick's second series of "Some Girls" for BBC3.  Shot in London over 6 weeks by Greg Duffield, DOP, the series was shot using a double ARRI Alexa kit, supplemented by a Canon C300 PL camera, with Cooke S4i primes and Angenieux Optimo DP zooms.

In the critically acclaimed, vibrant comedy series, Some Girls. Viva, Amber, Saz and Holli are back. Back with all the mayhem and attitude that came with series one for the worst-behaved schoolgirls on television.

Produced by Hat Trick Productions for BBC Three, the 6x30-minute series follows the lives and loves of our fierce foursome as they continue their painful and hilarious journey through both home and sixth form life at Greenshoots Academy.

So what can we look forward to in this brand new series? More boys (obviously!), new and unusual crushes, a total lack of discipline and plenty more of the rude stuff. The girls' lives are packed with dilemmas: Who's the hottest boy at school? Who's the biggest bitch? Is it acceptable to snog your best friend's ex - and if so, can you catch the action on your camera phone?

Viva and Rocky are now an item but Viva is full of doubts about where the relationship is headed. Fortunately Holli, Saz and Amber are always on hand to offer her advice about what to do. Unfortunately, their advice is usually rubbish.

Some Girls was commissioned by BBC Three Controller, Zai Bennett. The executive producer for the BBC is Gregor Sharp who comments: “The first series of Some Girls introduced BBC Three viewers to a group of truly memorable characters whom they immediately took to their hearts and we can't wait to see what they get up to in this new batch of episodes.”

Jimmy Mulville, Managing Director, Hat Trick Productions, says: “This second series of Some Girls confirms Bernadette Davis as one of the funniest writers working today. We're lucky to have her.”

Producer Charlie Leech adds: “The return of Some Girls continues the hilarious adventures of our four heroines as they navigate teenage life both at home and in a large inner city academy school. Bernadette Davis has once again brought us the lives and loves of Viva, Amber, Holli and Saz with six new comic, tender and often very rude episodes.”

Some Girls is written by Bernadette Davis who co-created and wrote the 1990's hit Game On. It is produced by Charlie Leech (Spy, Stage Door Johnnies, The Wrong Mans) and directed by Adam Miller (Mongrels). The executive producers are Helen Williams (Spy, The Armstrong & Miller Show, Facejacker) and Gregor Sharp.
