Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking

The Brief:

SPS were tasked with providing full post-production on Potato TV's ‘Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking’ – the second 45-min episode in the series following the ex-special forces soldier and a celebrity guest on the journey and conversation of their lifetimes. The brief was to support Ant Middleton on his quest to understand who Rebel Wilson really is and what makes her tick, away from the headlines and paparazzi.

The Solution:

We combined some of our best editing, audio & grading talent with an experienced freelancer to create a team that were able to overcome work from home-related challenges, tight deadlines (turning around 5-days of filming for edit) and complicated workflow & technology requirements to achieve the same look and feel of the first episode in the midst of a lockdown. Due to the COVID-19 protocols put in place, our team carried out online & offline editing and audio remotely, grading on site with remote sign offs, and completed extensive GFX and VFX work (removing crew and other cameras from shots) that pushed it further than we ever have before.

Edited in Avid Media Composer & Symphony, given a Baselight grade and a Pro Tools audio mix, the project was completed in 2 months and delivered for transmission on Sky One.

The Team:
Trevor Hart, Jon Slade, Trevor Hart, Lachlan Smith (Freelancer) 
- Editors
Eli Perl - Audio
Warren Williams - Colourist
Naman Davda - Workflow Supervisor
Oliver Bramley, Peter Green - Post Producer

“Everyone at SPS was very helpful and the project went very smoothly. Thankfully, we had access to the same talent that we worked with before, so everyone knew what to do. Overall, the show was a hit and everyone was happy with how it came out.”
