ProVision Supplies To Top CBBC Drama

News Image
ProVision, ITV's in-house facilities supplier, has secured the supply of large scale Camera and Lighting packages to two of CBBC's top kids dramas; Worst Witch 2 and The Dumping Ground 6.

ProVision are supporting both productions from their dedicated Northern bases in Leeds and Manchester.

Worst Witch shooting in Cheshire are utilising the latest incarnation of the ALEXA, the ALEXA SXT Plus with a combination of Cooke Mini S4's and ARRI Alura Zooms.

Likewise, The Dumping Ground are shooting on Alexa Plus with a combination of Angenieux and ARRI Alura Zooms.

ProVision are also supporting Queen Victoria, ITV's flagship drama from Mammoth, as well as the latest offering from Leeds based Indie Rollem Productions Love Lies & Records for the BBC.

ProVision London has also seen a substantial increase supporting a wide range of factual and documentary productions across the south of England.

The camera very much in fashion at present is the Sony FS7, which gives productions a cost effective solution without compromising on sensor or codec quality. This combined with our wide range of Canon L-Series lenses or our new Fuji MKT 18-55mm zooms make this a fantastic and versatile camera system across many different genres.

Some of our recent productions include Hospital (BBC 2), The Investigator, Ninja Warrior, Paul O'Grady Dogs, Love Island and Sam Faiers' Mummy Diaries to mention a few.
