Tailor-made solutions and support for your entire production or shoot
VE Crew specialises in providing support and solutions for your shoot. With hundreds of TV productions of all sizes under our collective belts, we have worked across all genres and formats, both at home and abroad.
During these challenging times VE Crew has remained fully operational – with our staff working from home and our Battersea base we have been approached by various production teams to provide solutions to film, whilst observing COVID-19 protection procedures, social distancing and equipment management.
Ve75 for the bbc
We were extremely proud to provide Arri Amira & Alexa Mini cameras to the BBC’s VE75 Concert at Buckingham Palace and seven Arri Amira Cameras with high quality PL Telephoto Zoom lenses across London vantage points to cover the VE75 Red Arrow Flypast. Buckingham Palace’s celebrations were filmed using Cinematic Angenieux zooms & Leica Summilux primes with Osprey Peds, tracks and a socially distanced production gallery, DoP Nat Hill produced fantastic results at this iconic venue. The stunning flypast – broadcast later in the day, showed off the iconic Red Arrows streaking across London’s spectacular skyline.
Football Beyond Borders
VE Crew was delighted to be given the opportunity to supply six cameras to the charity ‘Football Beyond Borders’, an initiative that pairs young people with professional footballers and mental health practitioners over an online game of FIFA. Observing strict COVID-19 protocols, we supplied cameras and associated equipment to record the interaction between the footballers & young people.
The work was created by Dark Horses & directed by Tom Day through Insider by Outsider.
Bespoke conference software
VE Crew has been working with partners to provide a conference platform similar to Zoom that has lower latency, higher video quality and most importantly, offering a higher level of security. This platform allows directors and other members of the team to work remotely during shooting whilst being confident no one is going to ‘zoom bomb’ the shoot. Using servers based in London to reduce latency alongside kits which provide 4G internet in remote locations we are keen for people to try it out so please get in touch if you would like a demo for your next project.
