The Bristol-based biannual event is back and in its 30th year, celebrating and supporting the wildlife and environmental film-making industry.  With a wide variety of festival programming, one of the many highlights is the 2012 Wildscreen Panda Awards on Thursday 18 October.  The team at ONSIGHT is extremely delighted to see three of our projects shortlisted, in which we provided groundbreaking camera and post solutions.

Congratulations to our clients Atlantic Productions for Flying Monsters 3D (Sky) and Oxford Scientific Films in association with Principal Large Format (National Geographic Channels) for Meerkats 3D.  Both have been nominated for the 'Best 3D Award' in a very strong category.  A further congratulations goes to Atlantic Productions for their most recent production Kingdom of Plants 3D (Sky), in the running for the Disneynature Innovation Award.  It is also fantastic to see none other than Sir David Attenborough nominated for the Presenter-led Award for Flying Monsters 3D, after 60 years in broadcast.

ONSIGHT provides shoot to post services for the new Epic series of Red Dwarf

03rd October, 2012

Red Dwarf returns to television with its tenth series, Red Dwarf X. Produced by Grant Naylor Productions, ONSIGHT was awarded the contract for cameras and post. Writer and Director Doug Naylor of Grant Naylor Productions remarked, “Using ONSIGHT worked really well for us. Their expert ability to provide not only a shoot solution but also full post production has allowed us to use top end cameras and post tools on a TV budget.”

The sci-fi comedy’s brand new instalment sees the classic characters, Rimmer, Lister, Cat and Kryten, back on their ship and facing fresh adventures in deep space. ONSIGHT created a bespoke 4K workflow, taking into consideration the desired look and special effects, without losing sight of the show’s original premise, together with the tight shooting schedule.
