THE BAND

VE CREW recently worked with Sassy Films to shoot a unique performance by Take That to promote the opening of their new West End musical – The Band.

We sent a crew of ten to film the group perform a medley of songs on the rooftop of the Theatre Royal Haymarket. With fixed camera positions on three different rooftops, a roaming street camera and a jimmy jib, we provided 5x Amira cameras with CN7 lenses and supporting kit, together with a CN20 long zoom for the band’s close ups.

Wireless solutions were provided via Boxx Atom systems to provide camera feeds to three different galleries for the director, production and clients. Long range walkies were also arranged to ensure good rooftop communication at all times!

Time frames were tight from the outset; the final promo needed to be completed within one hour of wrapping the shoot so all recording formats, colour matching and timecode had to be unified on the day to ensure an edit-ready recording.
