Schools Spectacular2


THE customer

NSW Department of Education: The Arts Unit – Provides a state-wide infrastructure for arts education. It delivers programs in dance, drama, music, visual arts, debating, public speaking, reading, spelling and special events.

The project

Since 2016, Gravity Media – then branded Chief Entertainment – has produced the 3-hour prime-time national broadcast. This Guinness World Record Breaking arena spectacular features over 370 New South Wales schools and 5,500 performers in a world-class production that blows the audience’s mind about the value of our kids, the arts and public education. Gravity Media provides a full turnkey production solution from filming location backstories to the 15 camera Outside Broadcast complemented by Spidercam.

The approach

To produce and provide world’s best practice in television production. Collaboration with the client is absolutely key as well as just simply listening. A constant but exciting challenge is to better the previous year’s broadcast. Over the years the introduction of Spidercam, POV cameras on performers, 360° video and fast-turnaround postproduction for timely on-air delivery has injected momentum and creativity into the broadcast. We never rest on our laurels.

THE outcome

A solid working relationship and trust with the client. Also a sense of pride and admiration for the amazing 5,500 student performers and a satisfaction to be a part of promoting and telling the stories of public education and the next gen.
