Forbidden Technologies’ cloud video platform Forscene is being used by Studio Lambert for the quick-turn production of Channel 4 observational documentary Gogglebox. The London-based studio Studio Lambert is using Forscene to search and select clips from the rushes while editing is in progress.
“With less than a week to turn around a show like Gogglebox, Forscene doubles the efficiency of the editing process,” said Chantal Boyle, series producer of Studio Lambert. “For example, whilst an editor is pulling material on the Avid editing system, the producer can pull different material and even create sequences simultaneously on Forscene.”
For Gogglebox, Studio Lambert shoots about 150 hours of material a week and logs the footage live during filming. The footage is then driven back to Studio Lambert’s post production house, where it is ingested into the Avid nonlinear editing system and uploaded to Forscene, ready for the edit team to start work the next morning. Edit producers and senior producers use a combination of shoot logs and Forscene to locate the best clips to weave into the show.
“The way Studio Lambert uses Forscene is a great example of the software’s value as a search tool,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies. “Every second counts on this production, and Forscene makes it possible for the show’s many producers to search through a considerable amount of footage quickly without disrupting the editors.”
