Award-Winning UK Producer Picks Blackbird Edit For Documentary TV Series
Forbidden Technologies announced that a leading factual, features and entertainment television producer selected Blackbird for a BAFTA and Emmy award-winning documentary television program.
The production company selected Blackbird to replace an existing EVS system to log and edit footage. The crew will use Blackbird to quickly log media from a gallery quad split of over 50 camera feeds, over an 18-week period.
This project is the first time Blackbird will be used in a complete end to end fixed-rig production and post-production cycle. Blackbird increases the value of post-production workflows by introducing a single logging toolset that moves seamlessly from location to edit suite. This enables producers and edit producers to review and search media across the entire production using rich logging metadata.
“I am delighted our incredible Blackbird software is extending into a new area of production. The fact we are an end to end solution on a fixed rig show dramatically extends our reach within the industry. We are bringing all the advantages of cloud as well as speed, collaboration and cost efficiencies to the customer which is quite an irresistible combination,” Ian McDonough, CEO, Forbidden Technologies says.
