BBC Studioworks is providing studios and post production services to the new series of Channel 4’s late night comedy talk show, The Last Leg, and ITV2’s Love Island: Aftersun, the companion show to BAFTA award-winning, Love Island.
The Last Leg, will broadcast live from BBC Studioworks’ 10,800 sq. ft. Studio TC1 at Television Centre this summer.
In addition to the studio and gallery hire, BBC Studioworks is providing full operational and technical support in the form of its electrical, engineering and scenic teams, as well as EVS tapeless recording and the provision of HDC-4300 cameras for the eight-camera set-up.
The production team is also making use of BBC Studioworks’ onsite post production services for the show’s on-the-day VT editing via an Avid Symphony online suite. Viewing files of the VTs and show records will be delivered to the client via the cloud.
Love Island: Aftersun, will be based at Elstree on Stage 8, BBC Studioworks’ 7,550 sq. ft. facility. The show will broadcast live every Sunday night for nine weeks starting in June in front of a live audience. The show will involve live links to Mallorca via Skype.
The production team will also make full use of BBC Studioworks’ post production village in Elstree for the UK-end of the VT and reversion editing for all of the Aftersun shows, whether live from Elstree or Mallorca.
