Brief Provide outside broadcast and post-production for the festive musical which was filmed at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre.
How it was done Timeline provided a seven-camera coverage, including one radio camera, for three performances of the The Nutcracker. These were vision mixed and ISO-recorded in the outside broadcast truck, OB16.
The footage was then sent to Timeline’s post facility at MediaCityUK for the offline edit, grade and audio dub.
Upon receiving the AJA Ki Pro drives on Saturday evening, multiple networked machines were used to ensure that all the media from the Friday and Saturday recordings were backed up and ingested into Avid ready for Monday morning.
The offline edit had access to the main mixes and all camera ISO recordings from the dress rehearsal and two main show recordings.
Whilst the show producer and editor were cutting the main show another suite was used to cut over 20 separate films for online, CBeebies iPlayer, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter with exclusive behind the scenes content, sneak peeks and karaoke versions of the songs.
Following picture lock, the project was conformed and graded in Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve while dubbing mixer Richard Lee worked on the audio.
Lee had access to 72 audio tracks to ensure that the dialogue and songs sounded their very best.
