Fully Remote & COVID-19 Production

Current circumstances have created a difficult time for the industry, and for those trying to create cutting edge television. A combination of goverment guidelines, restrictions on travel, and social distancing has meant producing content to the typical high standards has become difficult, if not impossible, in some cases.

WilkieTV are able to present a variety of tools and techniques which allow extensive flexibility and capabilities.

Our engineers and creative team have leveraged technology usually used in our live sports, news and events markets and brought this across to drama, entertainment, documentary and reality formats.

Recent credits include BBC One, BBC Two, ITV and Channel 4, as well as countless online events, live productions and fully remote broadcasts.

  • Contributor Capture uses contributor's devices (iPhone/Android) and remotely monitors a live feed, with our MCR engineers to assist with the tech. Your production team can see all shots in real-time whilst talking with the talent, directing and producing them from home.

    Quality far exceeds a 'Zoom call' record and allows huge gains in production value. It's a fast, flexible and cost effective method to gather content across all formats.
  • Remote Cameras - we deliver pre-configured remote hot-head cameras to the talent, which can be then used in their homes without us having to enter. Get higher quality shots, multiple angles and crystal clear audio whilst again allowing your production team full real-time remote monitoring from home and two-way chat. Perfect for 1-on-1 interviews and talk shows.
  • Traditional Cameras w/ Remote Links - even if we can get a camera crew to site, having a remote link means your production team can be minimised. Loggers can remotely track content, footage can be delivered electronically and producers can work from home.
  • Mix and Match - use a variety of techniques together to suit the need of your production.

    Need a 4-way 'Zoom' style call between contributors? No problem - we can pull four feeds using our iPhone/Android apps, give you a live quad view of all contributors. All footage is recorded in our MCR in an edit-friendly 1080p HD high quality format with isolated audio and video tracks for each participant.

    Want to link two contributors together in real time across the planet? We've used our hot-head and remote filming apps for shows that have contributors across the globe!
  • High Quality Audio we know the audio is just as vital as the video. We aim to ensure that we capture great audio, all tracked as individually isolated recordings so you can adjust in the edit as needed. We can advise on the best lapel mics, shotgun mics or appropriate accessories to go alongside the technique best suited to your project.

Our experienced engineers are on hand throughout all remote production projects, overseeing the output in terms of video and audio quality, as well as advising on lighting, framing and anything else you may require. Due to the fact all content is remotely reviewed, we can provide real-time viewing and interaction between your team, regardless of location. All footage is captured to the best quality possible depending on the technique used and delivered directly to your chosen post-production house.

We are committed to working hard to support the changing landscape of the industry across these times, and are constantly developing and tweaking our offering. Please get in touch for the latest information on any of the items discussed above.
