We are excited to report that we were commissioned to shoot and edit a news report on up and coming boxer ‘Kid Galahad’ in the run up to his title fight with Jason Booth. The report commissioned by broadcasting giant Aljazeera Sports was beamed out last week before the match and was a real test of capturing quality visuals and audio in a busy, training environment.
All footage was captured on the ever popular Canon 5d with L series glass with sound recorded separately and synced in post. Time was of the essence with tight deadlines for final output to be sent to the Middle-East within 24 hours. This resulted in rushes being transferred and tied up with audio as well as a quick assemble in FCP in Yorkshire before transferring selected material to central London via FTP for a fast edit and voiceover recording the next day.
The final cut looked great and everyone was happy so a great job all around. The other great news is that Kid Galahad won the title with a unanimous points win!
