BTV Post Provides Full Post Production For TV Series

BTV Post has provided full post production for the TV series, commissioned by Discovery.
BTV Post worked closely with Electric Sky Productions to ensure How Cities Work retained its spectacular 3D visuals and gripping, in-depth footage.
Filmed in stunning 3D, How Cities Work visits London, New York, Barcelona, Las Vegas, Berlin, San Francisco and many other iconic cities following the amazing technological achievements, planning and engineering feats that make life in these great cities possible and pleasurable for the masses.
BTV Post colourists and online editors, Ian Grey and George Dutton completed the picture post for the five-episode series with audio by Jon Gray, dubbing mixer for BTV Post.
Post supervisor, Chris Gallani gives the low-down on the project: "HCW was a production that was logistically and technically challenging. Rushes were couriered from location to our post facility operating round-the-clock for immediate ingest.
"We needed a workflow which allowed for the footage to be accessible ASAP by the editors who were eager to start, as well as tailoring for the multiple media types coming from the different cameras we used on the shoots.
"HCW required a well planned workflow to be conceived within a relatively short space of time before filming. Luckily, our experience of working on major stereoscopic 3D productions helped us deliver a workflow that merged seamlessly with production. It was great to see it flourish into full, glorious 3D and 5.1 surround. The team were very happy with its delivery and look forward to seeing it on TV."
How Cities Work was filmed earlier in the year using a range of cameras including the Sony TD-300, with the media transferred via BTV Post's fast data connection for online and mastering on Mistika and Avid editing suites. The deliverables were managed using Eclipse - BTV Post's bespoke digital media management platform.
How Cities Work was broadcast on 17 November 2013 on Sky 3D, with the 2D version broadcast in March 2014 on Discovery.
