Wall to Wall uses FORscene for BBC series

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading Cloud video platform FORscene, is pleased to announce that Wall to Wall, a Shed Media Company, is using FORscene in the making of the new BBC series “The Voice UK”.

Four of the biggest names in music are looking for singing talent to compete for the title of “The Voice UK”. The first coach to be announced is UK female artist, Jessie J. The origins of the show are in the Netherlands, where the Dutch version made a record breaking debut at the beginning of this year. A US version of the show, featuring Christina Aguilera on the judging panel, debuted on NBC in April.

For The Voice UK, Wall to Wall is first using FORscene to edit showreels of each of the artists. Producers log on to the programmes FORscene account where the showreels are stored. They then review each of the artists showreel videos.

Evolutions is the post house for this production. A major provider of FORscene, Evolutions works closely with Forbidden to facilitate new features on the platform according to clients individual needs.

Helena Ely, Head of Production at Wall to Wall, says:

“FORscene appealed to Wall to Wall because it simplifies collaboration between the people involved in a production.
With so much footage to organise, The Voice UK particularly benefits from FORscenes accessibility and flexibility”.

Commenting on FORscenes success, Jason Cowan, Account Manager, of Forbidden Technologies, says:

“We are delighted that Wall to Wall is using FORscene in such a high profile production. This use for editing and then review by Producers demonstrates FORscenes collaborative capabilities”.
