The Baby Has Landed (BBC2) for The Garden Productions
Example of a four camera Mini Fixed Rig
Industry leading selection of cameras from Panasonic
WilkieTV designs, builds and operates a range of bespoke fixed-rig and portable mini fixed-rig systems. From 1 to 40+ camera rigs, we stock the latest hot-head & PTZ systems to meet a huge range of needs. Ideal for documentary television, reality TV or hidden camera/pop-up activations.
Fixed rig allows the production team to be seperated from the cameras themselves and create the now well known "fly-on-the-wall" look. Technology makes it possible to observe situations that were previously not achieabavle either due to the location, safety or the need to avoid influencing the subject. Fixed rig is used extensively across the documentary and reality television sectors.
Many fixed rig shoots will be installed for a long duration, shooting day after day in one location. Other projects require a more portable or temporary solution; hence our development of the portable mini fixed-rig or "mini rig".
In addition to fixed-rig filming, we offer specialist camera systems, mini cams and all of the crew, project management and equipment required for your production.
Our systems are designed to offer you exactly what you need. Our technical crew can recce, design and install to your exact needs, and provide as much on-site or remote support as required.
Suitable for smaller (up to 8) camera temporary installations; or working across multiple sites. Equipment can often be relocated quickly by less-experienced personel, and tends to use more temporary installation methods.
Mini fixed rig is perfect for pop-up filming, hidden camera shows, small documentaries or multi-location reality TV.
For more than 8 cameras, or longer term installations, a traditional fixed rig gallery would likely be the selected route.
Our scalable and flexible fixed rig galleries include recording of multiple 'streams', support for a larger number of audio tracks and microphones, and an control environment designed for a greater number of operators than the mini rigs.
