Televisual is curating a number of sessions at BVE over the coming days including panels and workshops on using the Sony Venice, the Panasonic EVA1, shooting full frame and using pre viz in film and drama.

Broadcast Video Expo, the biggest broadcast, production and media and tech exhibition in the UK, takes place at ExCel London from Tuesday 26th to Thursday 28th February.

On Tuesday 26th comes a session on working with the Sony VENICE and the New VENICE Extension Unit

The Sony VENICE launched last February and is already being widely used for commercials, feature films and particularly for Netflix drama.

This session explores DoP Balazs Bolygo’s (Collateral) approach to cinematography and why he enjoys working with the Sony VENICE – from the dual ISO (and the camera’s low light image quality) to working with the VENICE’s new Extension Unit and the creative possibilities and flexibility it offers.

The session is supported by three short 4K HDR films and we’re joined by Alex Harrison from Motion Impossible to explain how their remote stabilised dolly, the Agito, enables fast set-ups and creates new ways of working.

On Wednesday, there’s a session Building the Perfect Shooting Pack and Workflow.

This panel session looks at what else you need when you buy a compact, entry level Super35 camera and specifically covers those moving up to a Sony FS5, Mach II or Panasonic EVA 1.

Products covered include Atomos monitor-recorders, Fujinon MK cine-zooms (to act as variable prime lenses), lightweight and inexpensive LED lighting to lift the look of your set pieces, to media and the best workflow options for the best results (from DIT to ingest and from editing to delivery). The session will be supported by two short films in 4K HDR.

The panel is made up of  Richard Warburton, Technical Director, Global Distribution; Ossie Jung, Gaffer and Director, ProLight Direct; Mark Horner, Market Development Manager, Fujinon. The chair is Televisual’s James Bennett.

Also on Wednesday is a session on Working with the Panasonic EVA 1 for 4K television.
Rupert Cobb shares his experiences of shooting television car shows and live bands on the Panasonic AU-EVA 1.

The EVA 1 is a small form factor Super 35mm camera that’s perfect for indie film-making, music videos, documentaries and digital advertising. The session will include clips from recent Gunhill Studios productions demonstrating the EVA 1’s low light capabilities and how the camera’s images – shot on Panasonic’s internal AVC Intra media – deliver stunning results.

There’s also a session on Wednesday on Shooting Full Frame – an exploration of shooting full frame: the why, when and what does it look like?

The session will cover what cameras can shoot full frame through how much data and what is the final ‘look’ – from changed focal lengths to shallower depth of focus. The session will also look at what Zeiss glass is on offer for Full Frame from the Zeiss Supremes to cine-zooms. The session will be supported by two short films shot Full Frame for 4K HDR masters (including an aerial view of London at night – aerial has rarely looked as good!)

On Thursday there’s a session on Cinematography and VFX: Pre – visualisation in Film & Drama.

This session will explore how previz and real-time in camera CG enhances VFX workflows in drama/film production & post, and how this captures a combined creative vision.

Drawing on Outlander (Series 2 and 3), Solo: A Star Wars Story, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald and Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms NCam will show examples of different applications and techniques.

Nic Hatch, CEO, NCam and Hugh Macdonald, CTO, NCam are on the panel.
