Ed Tischler, our Managing Director in EMEA, caught up with Videstream to discuss how everything has been at Gravity Media over the past year, the important topic of remote production and how’s 2021 shaping up for Gravity Media.
Gravity Media has been very fortunate given the circumstances. We’ve got a very diverse range of media services and facilities, whether that’s production teams or production centres, fly-pack solutions or System Integration services; we’ve been able to bring that all together and help clients solve mission critical problems.
But of course, some things have moved more remotely; ITV, for example, we put their Roland-Garros production at The Production Centre in London, whereas normally we’d go on site. For ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, we helped ITV take that from the jungle and put it on in the castle in Wales, and help move their post-production workflow to a remote format.
2021 holds a lot of great potential with the Euros and Olympics still scheduled for the summer. But of course we’re continuing to work with our clients to offer options and plan for different scenarios. From either full on-site venue based productions, all the way to back-ending it from our studios or even moving the venue for some productions. The most important thing for our clients right now is flexibility and options and that’s what we’re continuing to deliver.
