BBC 2 Theatre Production
In the unpredictable weather that British summertime often brings, the Televideo team was part of a unique project in Hull last week – an open-air theatre production of ‘The Flood’, to air on BBC 2 on 12th August. Following its award as the City of Culture 2017, Hull has been staging a number of open-air theatrical productions on the waterfront of the Victoria Dock. Televideo provided OB facilities to James Poole TV to cover this fascinating story.
The production involved a 7-camera shoot that included a Jib and 3 RF cameras. It certainly presented plenty of challenges for the team involved, with camera positions on various boats and pontoons in the water - and as you might expect from a British summer – there was plenty of rain too, which only added a touch of authenticity to the aptly named production of ‘The Flood’.
