VE CREW were pleased to work alongside Unilad to film stand-up comedian – Axel Blake’s recent gig at the Indigo, O2. Our brief was to deliver a 4k recording in full quality codec to meet the requirements of Netflix who would be streaming the show.

We supplied Arri Amiras with Canon CN20 and Cabrio 85-300mm lenses for the main shooting cameras and Canon CN7 lenses for the handheld units.

Our custom built 4K fibre DTS flypack was on-site to provide the gallery team with camera racking, monitoring, live camera switching, camera iris control, talkback and recording capabilities. We utilised the venue-installed fibre optic connections to distribute SMPTE cables across the arena to enable cameras to seamlessly move across different positions.

DOP BEN Frewin designed the show’s lighting and, together with our Technical Supervisor Naor Aloni, managed a team of over twenty other technicians across all departments to deliver a fantastic end result!
