ONSIGHT is the proud provider of cameras and picture post in 4K, HD, 3D and 2D for Colossus Productions’ new landmark series Conquest of the Skies (3D) - the facility’s seventh David Attenborough collaboration with Atlantic Productions and Sky.
The Post division designed a 4K workflow and oversaw the media management, based on a variety of camera formats, including the Epic as provided by ONSIGHT's camera team. There was also a mixture of shooting techniques, such as a 3D-Epic equipped Octocopter by Digital Cinema Films with R&D from ONSIGHT. This captured incredible aerial footage in Borneo and the UK’s Fenland. The camera division also provided a wide range of innovative 3D systems.

Our World War is a new drama series for BBC Three, starting 7 August. It is based on real stories of British soldiers during the First World War. ONSIGHT is proud to have been involved by providing the camera facilities on this unique project, as part of the BBC's programming to commemorate the war's centenary.
Produced by BBC Productions, each episode reveals the conflicts faced by the soldiers, often from their perspectives. To achieve this, different camera methods were used, including POV shooting, to bring audiences closer to the action than ever before. ONSIGHT supplied varied camera packages, encompassing an ARRI Alexa, the Black Magic Pocket Cinema model and GoPros for DoP Stuart Bentley. The team also provided extensive kit testing prior to filming to ensure the look and feel could be captured.
