As the official UK broadcaster of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the BBC’s coverage includes 3D throughout the 17-day competition. London 2012 is the first Olympics to feature live 3D broadcasts. To accompany these television firsts, the BBC has unveiled specially commissioned idents in stereoscopic 3D. With ONSIGHT’s extensive experience working in this format, the team provided both camera equipment and post production.
The BBC Olympic idents highlight eight selected events, consisting of hurdling, pommel, long jump, beam gymnastics, hammer throwing, pole vault, taekwondo and sprinting.

The upcoming natural history film highlights the incredible migration of monarch butterflies from Canada to the mountainous areas of Mexico – the longest known insect migration on earth. Through extensive research and planning, the award-winning production team captured this annual cycle over a year-long period.
ONSIGHT is proud to be involved in this project, assisting with the stereoscopic finishing for Giant Screen/IMAX. With our extensive experience working in S3D and wildlife filmmaking, it is a great fit for our London based team. The Lab & Post department is also supporting the digital effects work.

The Lab & Post team is working on the full post production for the feature film, Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson. Produced by Breakfast Films Limited with Rob Perren, the comedy is adapted from the successful play by the same name. The story focuses on a group of people watching the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final between England and Australia at their local Rugby Club.
We have been managing the data, captured in South London by Director Simon Sprackling. DoP Jonathan Iles says, “The film was shot using the RED Epic, giving us the ability to shoot 5K but importantly, a lot of slow motion still at such a high resolution. ONSIGHT was there to help us in every step of the way, offering daily reports on rushes and round the clock assistance.”
