Shine TV Turns To LiveU For The Heist

Leading UK production company once again uses LiveU to create workflows that provide producers with sophisticated storytelling tools.

The Challenge

Filming The Heist has unique challenges as a group of civilian "thieves" takes part in a bank job to steal £1m. If they do this successfully and manage to keep the cash for 20 days, while being pursued by former real-world detectives, then it’s theirs to keep. The challenge comes in having the producer/directors be able to see what the main camera teams are shooting while also being able to see what the thieves are up to in order to tell the best story possible.

The Solution

As well as the low-res feeds from the main cameras, the thieves used mobile phones and the LU-Smart app to send footage back to the low-res production gallery with that footage also stored on the phones for use in the show. It was easy for the thieves to open up the app and film and it meant that producer/directors could keep track of what they were filming and how they were filming it. The thieves could easily be communicated with, reducing the editorial risk while maximising the remote production elements and making sure that the most engaging and dramatic story could be told.

"As we predicted after using LiveU on the first series of The Heist, their technology has changed the way that we think about key aspects of productions. It really has benefited us in multiple ways and the way that their technology keeps evolving is highly encouraging too. We really believe that this is the future in many ways."
