Endemol uses FORscene for new reality TV programme
30th Nov, 2009
FORscene provides fast turnaround tools for celebrity reality show
Forbidden’s tools enable increased remote working and efficient post-production processing
Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer and marketer of a leading
web-based video platform, announced that Envy Post Production has provided
FORscene as a web-based service for the post-production of ‘7 Days On The
Breadline’, produced by Endemol UK for ITV1.
Envy Post Production used FORscene Load-Linux to split-digitise the DigiBeta
shot rushes via SDI into FORscene and local storage for in-house editing. With
the production filming in Leeds, rushes were available on the same day for
production staff across the UK to review content and add notes. Loggers based in
London used FORscene’'s frame-accurate tools through a web browser to log rushes
and GV material.
Once in the edit suite, producers and directors used FORscene’s built-in content
management system to search rushes logged in FORscene and create rough-cuts and
sync pulls. This enabled an efficient use of offline edit suite time.
Envy Post Production is the proud winner of Best Production House at the
Broadcast Awards 2008 & 2009.
Jai Cave, Head of Offline Services at Envy Post Production, said:
"This is the first time that we’ve used FORscene and we found it easy to set-up
and apply to post-production workflows. We made both rushes and playouts
available from any computer connected to the internet.’"
Marnie Sirota, Production Manager at Endemol UK, commented:
"For a quick turnaround production I needed to ensure that the production team
could access material quickly and make the most efficient use of logged
material. FORscene assisted us with the post-production process by utilising its
web-based system and highly developed logging interface."
Pete Burns, Project Manager at Forbidden Technologies, said:
"FORscene is enabling productions to centralise their workflows giving
them faster turnaround speed without sacrificing quality. FORscene’s simplicity
is helping new facilities to learn the technology with ease, and provide a wider
range of post-production workflows to production companies."
‘7 Days On The Breadline’ is a Brighter Pictures production, part of Endemol UK for ITV1.
