PSC – ‘Be Your Own Boss’ [BBC 3], Steadicam

without comments

In June, we worked on a new BBC 3 series ‘Be Your Own Boss’, shot on location in East London on the PMW-800 XDCAM HD.

The series is a younger person’s ‘Apprentice’-style programme, with entrepeneur Richard Reed, the co-founder of Innocent smoothies, giving 500 entrepeneurs/ teams a chance of success – digging into his own pocket in the process, with no guarantee of seeing a profit! The documentary focusses on Richard’s success and insight into the world of business.

Jason Torbitt operated Steadicam for two days with one of our assistants, Scott Nolan, Focus Pulling. It was a long, demanding day for Steadicam. We covered two of three pitching days, whereby we covered walk-and-talks, GVs, and a long series of sales pitches to Richard, shot with a Steadicam master shot and two handheld close-ups. We also covered group discussions, on a drifting wide, in the soft set, where a group of entrepreneurs discussed the various pros and cons of the different pitches.

Although the days were long, it was a great show for us to be involved with, with a hardworking crew and demanding schedule – but it was all good fun!
