media at Native XDCam 50 resolution to the Cinegy logging system. The roll name created at the backup stage is copied onto the Cinegy system allowing ingests to be tracked. Once the rushes are ingested, the loggers start to log material. There are various tasks to be carried out. All of the interviews are clipped out and sent to the Avid, in addition the daily ‘highlights’ are sent to the Avid as a ‘story of the day’ sequence. If entire rolls of rushes are needed by the edit, then these are also sent to the Avid on a request basis. It’s very useful to carry out Media Management at this stage, as a lot of the training footage isn’t deemed to be interesting, so by only sending the highlights to the Avid has two benefits. Edit producers and editors have a concise amount of rushes to work with so the amount of Avid storage used is kept to a minimum. The loggers will then log the interviews with contestant’s word for word, which is beneficial to the edit producers. Once this is complete, the loggers will review training footage and log anything interesting that might have been missed by the team when they were filming. Each edit suite is equipped with a Cinegy logging station whereby the edit producers can review material, read or print logs, carry out simple compilation edits and send footage or simple edits in the Avid. The edit assistants work in conjunction with the loggers and data wranglers and they offer first line support. They also process all of the content sent from Cinegy and import it to the Avid. They export any footage needed for review via MediaSilo or exports for other broadcasters. On average, how many hours of footage do you handle per week? Across training material, specifically shot VT content, training run- throughs and studio content, we handle approx. 140-160 hours of material per week. What does your typical day look like and how does this vary during show time on Saturday? My days vary, I work five days a week with my days off being Wednesday and Thursday (to allow me to work at weekends). I base myself with the team of edit assistants so that I can be across any questions that may arise and react to non-standard requests more quickly. At BBC S&PP, we have an open door policy for the edit assistants, meaning that clients request work to be done directly to avoid time delays. Most of my days are spent overseeing the edit and the staff working in the support areas (edit assistants, loggers and data wranglers). During the BBC One live show day I carry out a number of different tasks. I generally start a little later as the show doesn’t finish until late in the evening. I record the voice over for the VTs first thing with the presenter. Once that’s completed I watch all of the VTs ensuring that they are technically compliant for transmission and fix any technical hiccups. I’ll then play out all of the VT content to the EVS KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 109 JANUARY 2016 | 49
