Working in partnership with Carm Productions, The Hacienda, Manchester Camerata, Sony Music and Channel 4 this was a great amount of fun to produce. Directed by long time collaborator, Chris Cowey, we filmed at the Royal Albert Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Castlefield Arena to create a story behind one of the most amazing musical collaborations of 2016. Aired on Channel 4 and nationwide in the cinemas.
In total we spent 6 months on the project, starting by filming the first ever rehearsal on 8 cameras and then having 8-10 HD and UHD cameras on both Bridgewater Hall events, the Royal Albert Hall and Castlefield Bowl. We also had behind the scenes teams to pick up interviews and chat with everyone taking part.
It was a major production feat and we also had to ensure that by the time we were in post production, at Timeline TV North, that we were quickly able to sync up all those cameras and also the split track audio.
