For the sixth consecutive year, the production is being hosted in the UK’s largest gallery-served stage, George Lucas Stage 2
The impressive 15,770 sq. ft. stage specialises in large-scale TV productions, comfortably housing the iconic 360-degree ballroom set and 700-strong live audience.
We are running a tried-and-tested technical workflow for the 2018 series, featuring an 11 camera set-up, including one 30’ MovieBird Technocrane, four pedestal cameras, a radio Steadicam, and four handheld/lightweight tripod cameras.
Our Elstree post production village, with 11 Avid Symphony suites dedicated to the show, meets the fast turnaround and varied editing requirements and handles up to 100 hours of training material each week. Rushes are ingested, logged, edited, reviewed, and incorporated into the shows which air on Saturday and Sunday evenings. With our recent investment in tapeless capture at Elstree, material from the studio floor is instantly available in the edit.
We are also providing post production services to the 60-episode series of the Strictly Come Dancing companion show, It Takes Two, from Elstree.
