Trickbox TV, a leading supplier of equipment and services for studio and location multi-camera productions for broadcast, video production, webcasting and live events, has announced that its fly-away, multi-camera solution has been used by concert films and music documentaries specialists Toward Infinity. The technology was used to record concerts for pop sensations Bananarama and Steps. The Bananarama gig, which took place on Monday 20th November at the London Eventim Apollo, and the Steps concert, which took place on Saturday 25th November at the SSE Arena, in Wembley, London, were recorded by Trickbox for Blu-ray and DVD sale, to be released through Live Here Now.
Toward Infinity supplied Trickbox with camera plans, Trickbox then managed the whole installation including the production design, providing the technical equipment to record the shows as well as the crew to rig and de-rig it plus Vision Engineers and Unit Managers. Rigging and de-rigging takes place on the day of the show, explains Producer, Director and Editor, Tim Sidwell. Thats really advantageous to us as it keeps costs down. Trickbox can rig a multi-camera shoot in the morning, get it ready for the show and then break it down and get it out of the venue by the end of the night.
London fans were excited to see the original Bananarama line-up take to the stage for the One Time Only tour, which started on 12th November in Glasgow. Its the first time Siobhan Fahey, Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward have been on stage as a trio since The Brits in 1988. Fans of pop sensations Steps were delighted to see their idols take to the stage in London on Saturday. The group are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a huge sell-out UK arena tour.
Liam Laminman, Managing Director, Trickbox TV adds, We ve worked with Toward Infinity for a couple of years providing a fly-away, multi-camera unit for major concerts across the UK. Bananarama and Steps are huge acts that have a nostalgic place in the hearts of fans all over the world and we hope they can relive the pop magic when the Blu-rays and DVDs are released.
