SHOW TITLE: GoggleBox
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Studio Lambert
BROADCASTER: Channel 4
ROLE: Robotic Camera Operator
GoggleBox became a smash hit from its first series back in 2013. Featuring British couples and families and friends sitting in their living rooms, watching TV and providing reactions and commentary on News, documentaries, entertainment, reality, films and all shows in-between.
GoggleBox evolves constantly and needs to be in the forefront for the high demand and quick turn over. 6 teams filming 5 days a week, all over the UK, needs a flawless approach. Filming on a Friday to show airing the following Friday for 15 weeks.
The global pandemic ‘Covid’ produced a new approach to GoggleBox and required instant change for the crew in the field and post production to keep the show running throughout the pandemic. This included working remotely from vans that where rigged in a style that is found in OB trucks.
