ONSIGHT and Mr Stink

17th December, 2012

Mr. Stink sees David Walliams' best-selling children's book come to life on the small screen, produced by BBC Comedy.  ONSIGHT is delighted to have provided full cameras and stereoscopic post production on the BBC's first narrative programme in 3D, as well as delivering the 2D versioning.

Shot over several weeks, our camera department supplied 3ality Technica Atom and P+S Technik Freestyle rigs with RED Epic cameras and Angenieux Optimo matched lenses.  On-set DIT services included data back ups and transcoding.  The 2D rushes were taken from one of the eyes filmed to capture the 3D.

Mon 17 ONSIGHT helps pull Little Crackers together

17th December, 2012

The award-winning Little Crackers is back with a third series for Sky.  The autobiographical shorts feature a new line-up of top British names, including Alison Steadman, Caroline Quentin and Paul O'Grady.  These comedy dramas are ideal for the festive season and ONSIGHT is pleased to be involved in the production facilities.

Working with a number of established production companies, the ONSIGHT team provided shoot to post services on five out of the twelve films.  The 3D offering introduced this year applied to three projects, carefully selected by recognising what story would be truly enhanced by the added dimension.  Sony provided the cameras, and given our extensive experience in 3D, we supported the shoot.  ONSIGHT's Lab & Post oversaw the post production stages from dailies to the grade and finishing with both 3D and 2D deliverables.

Published in 2008, the book revolves around Mike Mackenzie, a wealthy man who instigates a thrilling art heist set against the backdrop of Edinburgh, targeting the National Gallery of Scotland. ONSIGHT’s Colourist Andy Lee graded the show in their DI Reference Suite, working closely with DoP George Steel.
