During production of the reality show a team of 18 loggers and eight editorial staff logged, searched and reviewed more than 17,000 hours of media shot across 28 consecutive shoot days using 20 cameras. Paul Jones, head of post-production for Princess Post Production, part of the Endemol Shine Group, said: “On the first series our team viewed sequences in Avid while logging in Word. It was far from ideal as manually entering every timecode slowed data entry down and we couldn’t index or search our logs. On the second series, with Forscene, our loggers had access to multi-layer sync maps in the cloud on commodity level PCs. We were able to support three times as many loggers and provide the editorial team with a fully searchable set of logs paired with the actual content.” Forbidden Technologies, the develop of Forscene, has also announced that it has begun to migrate major elements of the post-production platform to Amazon Web Services with the intention of fully migrating by NAB 2017 forscene.com
