VE CREW recently worked alongside Bryncoed Productions and DOP Cinders Forshaw to film a drama pilot – Nyela’s Dream. We provided Arri Amira units for the main shooting cameras, together with a selection of lenses including the Alura 45-120mm, Alura 18-80mm and a set of Arri Master Primes. Arri WCU-4 wireless follow focus units were also supplied. For an additional camera unit, we supplied an Arri Alexa Mini with Arri Ultra Primes which were used with our Ronin Pro stabiliser Gimbal.
The pilot, filmed in Kent and various London locations, was a very fast-paced shoot, with a lot of content to cover in a relatively short space of time. To prepare for this, we offered a three day camera test to the DOP and other crew members prior to the shoot to ensure that all kit was ready to go. We also provided one of our in-house camera assistants for the duration of the shoot which helped to ensure the smooth running of the production even further.
