NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2020
The NHM contacted Flux to ask if they could broadcast the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards from the beautiful Hinzte Hall. The event was usually a crowded affair around a stage but this would be a covid-sae affair with no audience. It was the latter half of 2020 and this was a return to live events.
I was chosen to produce and project manage the livestream and guide the NHM through this process.
We were blessed to have one of the most beautiful venues in London to ourselves with no public in the space. Working with Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin was easy in such a huge room.
I was mindful to keep the photography in the spotlight, so animated stings and intros were built that displayed the wonder of these images. Xpression was used to show the images with the care needed.
A MEMORABLE BROADCAST
This broadcast was one of my favourite projects as the beautiful compositions of flora and fauna were a spectacle to behold and an honour to work with. I had assembled a great team of camera ops, engineers, editors, directors and production assistants to make things run smoothly. We were able to record and broadcast two events over three days all within the difficulties of the Covid pandemic.
It was a fantastic return to live broadcast and I felt very special being a part of it.
