Renegade Pictures uses FORscene

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading Cloud video platform FORscene, today announced that Renegade Pictures is using FORscene for the production of its fourth series of Dont Tell The Bride.

Dont Tell The Bride is a popular BBC3 series in which the groom must decide on every detail of his wedding, from venue to wedding dress, without any input from the bride.

Renegade Pictures is another new FORscene customer as demand continues to increase in the production market, with more companies centralising their workflows to reduce post production costs.

The production team used FORscene for logging, rough-cut editing and wide-area review and approval. The production was shot on DVcam and rushes were split-digitised at Molinare into FORscene Load and local storage. Loggers added searchable metadata in FORscene, providing producers and directors with information to make rough-cuts and sync pulls using FORscenes editing tools. Working remotely allowed the production team to maximise the efficiency of their edit suite time in post production.

Fiona Herson, Deputy Head of Production at Renegade Pictures, said:

“This is the first time I’ve used FORscene and it has greatly improved the post-production of Don’t Tell The Bride. The production team has found it easy to use with very little
training and its opened up our communication and access to material throughout the production process.”

Pete Burns, Project Manager at Forbidden Technologies, said:

“We are pleased to be working with Renegade Pictures who have benefited from using FORscene. FORscenes use in Broadcast grows as production companies move to more efficient workflows.”

Dont Tell The Bride is produced by Renegade Pictures, for BBC Three.
