Origin Film & Television: 25p in reality
Posted on Apr 15, 2023 by FEED Staff
Cine and broadcast rental company Origin Film & Television sees huge success in the move to 25p – a major style shift for traditional genres
Focus on change in broadcast usually comes from software and technology, with the excitement buzzing around developments in graphics, AR and virtual production.
However, there is another transformation afoot. Swapping out traditional OB and studio cameras for cine cameras like the Sony Venice and Arri Alexa Mini LF, as broadcasters and production companies look to bring a fresh face to their content.
Streaming platform giants such as Netflix and Amazon Prime have revolutionised how we consume entertainment as we know it. Reality shows – single-handedly one of the most popular genres on these platforms – have developed from somewhat haphazard set-ups to crisp, cinematic productions.
This has created market expectation for top-level production on content that, once upon a time, would never have been associated with the word ‘cine’; a key example of this being outside broadcast and live sports.
Aiding the widespread adoption of cine cameras first-hand is rental company Origin Film & Television.
Origin offers broadcast and post-production equipment rental, as well as cloud, virtual and remote services. On top of all of this, it guides productions with industry-leading project design, support and engineering to live production, reality and factual entertainment.
