Rude Tube 2012

Alex Zane and his talking computer, voiced by Johnny Vegas, take another journey through the Clipiverse to showcase 50 clips of Animal Anarchy featuring hairy, cunning and lethal friends – and that’s just the domestic cats!

Check out the extreme elephant action, a completely new use for piranhas and a cat that can fly!

Shooting Partners provided Sony XDCAM shooting kit to October Films for each run of the popular show. The Optical Disc format continues to be a clear first choice for most long form TV production in the UK. The production team being used to tape based workflows found an easy transition to disc.

Shooting Partners often provide Sony U2 drives for faster transfer of material by mounting the disc (via USB from the U2 drive) to any laptop or desk mounted computer.

Sony also provide a recovery service on XDCAM discs if there is a problem reading the information. Although this is a rare occurrence there is a good chance of recovery by sending the disc away for analysis.

The shoot also called for moving dolly shots, so SP supplied the fantastic Egripment Euro Dolly. This ride on dolly is a great solution for lighter but durable kit needs on a tight budget. The full dolly kit comes in rugged Peli cases with bazooka base, seat and a choice of lightweight plastic screw together track or tough metal track sections.

Monitoring for this shoot came in all sizes as Shooting Partners provided 17″ HD LCD monitors, Sony 8.5″ HD LCD and even TV Logic 7″ ‘on camera’ units all providing fantastic HD quality pictures. The monitors run on a combination of mains power or batteries as required.
