Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions has used Aframe’s cloud video production platform on gangster drama, Peaky Blinders. Aframe enabled digital dailies and other works in process to be assembled, reviewed and distributed to a large and geographically dispersed team on the move.
Nicky Poulton, drama production manger at Tiger Aspect, commented, “The main benefit for us is the speed of sharing footage with executive producers and the executives at BBC2. The simplicity of being able to review footage from wherever they are makes it extremely convenient, collaborative and far more cost effective than our previous methods. It has certainly aided in the quick and efficient post production of the show.”
Head of drama Will Gould added, “Not only has Aframe provided significant benefits in terms of the production and post production processes, but we continue to be impressed by its ease of use. People are comfortable with the solution and enjoy using the platform, and although we do alternate staff between productions, Aframe is so user-friendly that there is very little training needed.
Peaky Blinders, which airs on BBC next week, is also the reason for visual effects facility Bluebolt’s nomination for a TVBAward. The company created a ‘Blade Runner’ style 1920’s Birmingham; city streets with smoking factories, chimneys and scaffolding as well as adding blood and destruction.
Bluebolt is up against Milk VFX and Lola for the Achievement in VFX award, which is one of 13 to be presented at the TVBAwards, taking place at the Hilton London Wembley on 23 October. Tickets for the event are still available via the website.
