Topsy and Tim is the CBeebies’ first live action drama, produced by Darrall Macqueen. As the series’ camera facilitator, ONSIGHT congratulates Production on wrapping the shoot these past few days.
The production team wanted to make a show that would engage such a young audience and focus on the lead characters - five year-old twins. They therefore opted for a point-of-view filming style done from the children’s level. Everything was shot at a metre height and from a set especially built at Twickenham Studios, reflecting a real house location. ONSIGHT’s camera department supplied the cameras and accessories over 3 blocks of shooting. The Sony PMW-F3 was selected, recording to AJA Kia Pro Mini to secure the higher data rates for broadcast.
