Shine TV chooses Forscene for Hunted

Shine TV chooses Forscene for Hunted

Popular factual television producers, Shine TV chose professional post-production software, Forscene for logging and edit preparation on the second series of Hunted for Channel 4.  Forscene was used by a team of 18 loggers and eight editorial staff to log, search and review the 17 000 hours of media recorded during the making of the series.

Hunted explores whether its possible to disappear in a country under constant surveillance.  The series debuted in 2015 and features a cast of ordinary Brits attempting to disappear for 28 days and avoid being caught by a team of expert hunters.  Producing the second series involved 28 consecutive shoot days with 20 cameras spread across six groups of fugitives, six teams of hunters, Hunter Headquarters and a backstory crew.  Knowing that these teams would produce an enormous amount of footage, Shine TV identified logging as a key focus area and created workflows for each of these groups that relied on Forscene to keep track of every clip recorded.

For the fugitives and the team in Hunter Headquarters, every move and word from multiple recording devices needed to be synced, logged, tracked and searchable.  In addition to using multiple cameras to capture all the action, all cast were wired for constant audio recording.  Every night the rushes were collected, ingested to both Forscene and Avid storage and used to create a sync map of each teams day in Avid.  These sequences were then sent to the edit team who cut each day into story or activity chunks that were exported as AAFs and imported to Forscene for verbatim logging.  The AAF import to Forscene allowed a seamless rebuild of the Avid sequences, bringing in multiple cameras, track names, audio level adjustments and multicam effects.  X-key panels and Forscene keysets were used to speed up logging and ensure consistency in the metadata - essential for later searches.  The hunter and backstory teams had simpler workflows, with hunters following a more traditional activity log and the backstory team logging verbatim against single media sources.  Each day a total of around 150 AAFs were transferred between Avid and Forscene to feed the team of 18 loggers. 

On the first series our team viewed sequences in Avid while logging in Word, explains Paul Jones, head of post-production for Princess Post Production.  It was far from ideal - manually entering every timecode slowed data entry down and we couldnt index or search our logs. On the second series, with Forscene, our loggers had access to multi-layer sync maps in the cloud on commodity level PCs.  We were able to support three times as many loggers and provide the editorial team with a fully searchable set of logs paired with the actual content - and its much more cost effective!

Once the main shoot and logging period was over, the production transitioned to the full craft edit which ran across eight Avid suites each overseen by an edit producer with full access to Forscene.  With so much source media, the ability to search using the logs was imperative during this edit.  By using Xkeys and keysets in Forscene to format keywords, names and phrases, the team had created a strong data set and producers could search, read and view content in Forscene very easily alongside the Avid edit.

Shine TV makes some of the most exciting factual television in the UK, says Jason Cowan director of business development for Fobidden.  Forscenes use on the second series of Hunted demonstrates how the software enables producers like Shine TV to push the boundaries of great entertainment, creating better content, quicker and more cost effectively than ever before.

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
