Busy Summer For Camberwell Studios

News Image
This summer has seen a steady flow of varied and interesting work coming into the studios. In some cases we provided only the space, in others we supplied the kit and the crew as well. Here are just a few examples of the work we regularly have at the studios.

Big Brother/Electric Robin
Last month saw the start of Celebrity Big Brother Season 20. That many!

Electric Robin, headed up by relaxed duo, Ross and Kevin, filmed the VTs – five different set-ups using both studios. The filming came in two stints with a week in the middle. The final VT was filmed less than 24 hours before the show started. Our verdict – great fun!

The Weddings of Downton
The gloriously named New York production company Inky Dinky Worldwide were in from New York filming their 18th Downton Abbey special – this one about the Weddings of Downton. We provided the gaffer, autocue/operator, sound recorder and production assistant. This was a proper test of the new sound-treating in Studio 1. We are pleased to say Lord Grantham sounded absolutely fabulous. No issues at all. Well done, Hugh.

Circus Street – Online Education Specialists
Long-time clients Circus Street were in, this time using Studio 1. Previously, Circus Street only used soundproof Studio 2 but we persuaded them to try Studio 1. They kindly recorded a testimonial about the sound. You can see it on our website.

The Sony Interactive Entertainment Group
We hosted a day of test shooting for Sony who were shooting augmented reality in a fully green environment – floor, walls and the ceiling. If you ever need a 20' square greenscreen ceiling we can help.

Terence Quinn
Terence is a student at nearby Camberwell College of Arts in filming his final piece for his masters about the refugee crisis. What was interesting was his Binaural sound recording made with the 'Binaural Head'.
