VE CREW were pleased to have recently worked with Zodiak Kids on the launch of a new live action series for CITV – Spy School. The shoot combined both studio and location filming, for which we supplied equipment, transport and in-house assistants. For the studio element of the show, we supplied 5x Sony PDW-F800 cameras with Canon HJ14 and HJ22 lenses. Additional camera angles were achieved using GoPro HERO4s, which were timecode synced and remotely activated. We also supplied an Egripment Universal dolly with 100ft of turbo track. For the location shooting, we provided Sony FS7 cameras with Vocas E to PL adaptors and Canon CN7 lenses. Supporting kit included Boxx Atom wireless systems for gallery feeds, Easy Rigs with Flowcine Serene Arms, GoPros with timecode sync and remote recording and a Sony A7s with Atomos Shogun Inferno monitor/solid state recorder.
We built and managed galleries for both the studio and location filming. Our gallery set-up involved distributing graphics, VT’s and a live news camera feed to the set, together with a director’s viewing gallery for calling shots.
