Get Your Act Together

Get Your Act Together will see some of our best-loved stars join forces with some of the world’s most talented variety acts to put on a unique performance. Each week, host Stephen Mulhern will be joined by five different celebrities who battle it out to learn jaw dropping talents, from contortion to fire dancing, ventriloquism to acrobatics, juggling to plate spinning.

Under the watchful guise of the world’s most talented acts and performers, the celebrities will have intensive training to master their chosen skill. Viewers will see unique collaborations as the celebrity and their mentors then take to the stage together to perform in front of a studio audience. Viewers will also get to see all the action from backstage as our celebrities attempt to overcome their nerves and face last minute rehearsals ahead of their moment in the spotlight.

Each week it will be down to the studio audience to decide which celebrity, along with their mentor, has entertained them the most and goes through to the Final. Who will be able to embrace their chosen skill, hold their nerve and Get Their Act Together?

ITV Production’s passionate creators chose to go with the versatile Canon EOS C300 camera with a range of Canon EF lenses, sturdy shoulder mounts and a simple cost effective audio and lighting packages. The teams opted for the Sennheiser G3 radio mics, with lighting deciding lightweight, low power consumption 1×1 Litepanels to be the practical choice. Continuing the LED theme Rotolight toplights gave the team balanced lighting with soft diffused shadows ideal for any close-up interviews. And with a large number of roaming camera’s lockit boxes provided the ability to sync all camera’s, to save time in the edit on this quick turnaround show.

Portability was key to this project as shooting teams were required to follow celebrities and trainers from their homes right through to studio. Additional angles were covered with the latest GO PRO cameras as a cost effective minicam.
