ENG – BBC News Feature VT – Steadicam

without comments

We recently did a recce and shoot for BBC News. The piece, a special feature regarding the finances of Premier League football, was shot in a day at Old Trafford, Manchester United’s ground. Shot on the PMW-500, with Jason operating Steadicam plus some GVs and cutaways on sticks, we had autocue also on the rig, with a 5″ direct view LCD monitor mounted above the lens.


We had a highly portable solution on the shoot day. Working off our Steadicam Magliner, we had docking, RF receivers, autocue control and director’s monitoring all on board, meaning we could move around the stadium with the minimum of fuss, and therefore maximising our shooting time, on what was a demanding day of filming. Various versions for BBC News Channel, BBC World, BBC News at 6 and BBC News at 10 were produced. Here is one of the versions currently available: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23715132
