The Furchesters make a video about the hotel, but the director sees things going wrong in every room. Can the family use their wacky creativity to solve the problems?
Manage the end-to-end production for a major new Cbeebies series.
HOW IT WAS DONE
Studio recorded multicam feed directly to AVID ISIS and Interplay system.
This was a hugely exciting project for dock10, working with Cbeebies and Henson productions this Sesame Street based spin off was in studio for 3 months shooting 52 episodes. Capture was achieved using Avid Multistream Airspeeds recording at DNX185X, this codec was chosen due to the detail and vibrant colours of the puppets, this combined with large amount of green screen compositing meant production needed the native footage in the highest quality. All editing was achieved directly from the DNX185X stored on ISIS with no proxy codec needed meaning editor Mike Eccles had instant access to the footage, even while it was being recorded.
Lead Editor, Rob Douglas-Reeves says ‘because this was a brand new series, production were very keen to see some scenes put together as soon as they were shot, Mike could easily achieve this using the integrated Airspeed-ISIS-Interplay workflow here, working at full res also meant production had a clear idea of how the series was going to look’. Online was completed in Avid Symphony with minimal grading needed and each episode had a full dub using ProTools V10.
