Britain’s Best Home Cook

VE CREW have completed filming with Keo Films on BBC1’s brand new cooking competition – Britain’s Best Home Cook. The show, presented by Claudia Winkleman and judged by Mary Berry, features ten contestants over eight episodes as they face a range of culinary challenges.

Our high-end camera equipment included 8x Alexa Mini camera kits with a selection of Canon CN7, Angenieux 16-42 and 30-80mm, Fujinon 85-300mm and Zeiss 70-200mm lenses.

Alongside the usual extensive range of supporting kit, we were also asked to supply a mobile gallery platform to enable each department to access all camera feeds at any given time. We utilised some of the newest technology from both Boxx TV and Teradek to supply monitoring, control and live stream access via IOS devices to all camera operations, and created a unique, secured network covering 3000 feet.

VE CREW’s technical team – Naor Aloni and Will Wilkinson were involved from the outset to over-see the shoot and manage the gallery build and operation, and we supplied in-house camera assistants throughout to ensure the smooth running of the production even further.
