SEQUENCE POST - BREWING UP HOT TALENT

Sequence Post have recently drawn to the final stages of their inaugural 'S' Factor competition, in which short-listed new entrants from various Media courses around the country battled for the chance to win a first-time job in TV. The lucky winner of 'S Factor 2010' will venture into a customised, paid role with Sequence, where they will gain hands-on experience both in the editing, design, finishing and 'on set' assisting on short form RED film production projects. Inspired by previous success stories from the Sequence family including 2009 Broadcast Post-Production Hot Shot - Ian Grech, who has since become one of the top FCP talents in London.

Foakes said: "This year we have run the competition on a small scale, under the radar to test the format with Bournemouth Media School and Ravensbourne College. Seeing the young new entrants all fired up reminds me of starting out editing at only 18 years old. They are the future and not to be ignored or sent to the kitchen to make cups of tea."

Suitcase TVs ShotLogger allows quicker sports production at a fraction of the cost. Posted: 11/06/2010
Suitcase TVs ShotLogger allows quicker sports production at a fraction of the cost.

The FIFA World Cup is fast approaching in early June this year, and is set to be the summer of sport. This will leave broadcasters with hours of content, needing to be manually reviewed to compile any post-game edited production. For both recorded and live transmissions, the ability to quickly identify key events would significantly increase time and cost efficiency. However, in the current broadcast environment this is mostly done manually, which can be very time-consuming for content producers, and due to human error some key events could be missed.

 The solution to this problem is Suitcase TVs Aqua Range, uniquely catering for fast turn-around productions. The Aqua ShotLogger module is designed for the quick identification of shots and creating quick metadata tags.
