People are at the heart of every production and thanks to a global database that we have built up over the last sixteen years working on major sporting events we have had the good fortune to work with some of the best crew from all around the world. Our personnel are established with experienced, knowledgeable, specialist engineers, crew and long term freelancers. We will source and match crew members for the production ranging from Production Managers, Senior Engineers, VT Operators, Cameramen, Vision Mixers, Vision Engineers, A1 and A2 Audio Engineers, Riggers and Runners.
Crewing can be extremely demanding we have the personnel with extensive experience of managing freelancers and the project pedigree competently to manage these demands.
Once we have allocated the best crew members to your event our production team can organize all elements of an on location broadcast from onsite facilities, crew flights and accommodation to crew expenses throughout the duration of the broadcast or event being held.
Onsite infrastructure if required is not a problem no matter where the project is located, we can organize porta-cabins, porta-loo's, electricity, lighting, furniture, office equipment and catering facilities.
