Dennis - Historic Motoring Awards

This awards ceremony was shot at the White Space studio in Colchester and hosted by Amanda Stretton the UK’s leading female motorsport, classic car and automotive TV broadcaster.

In this Covid secure space the green screen shoot was conducted with just the host, the cameraman and the producer.

Once the shoot was complete latterly everything was put in afterwards. The moving virtual background, the graphics, the pre-recorded video inserts from sponsors and winners and the voice over were added in post-production.

However, this mainly pre-recorded event had a live twist and that was that the winner of the last awards was voted for by the audience.

To allow this to be genuinely live the whole show was streamed live, and 10 versions of the last award were shot and edited for playout. Once the winner of the live vote had been established, we then cued up the correct winner for playout.

This offered the organiser the security and peace of mind of a fully pre-recorded program, with the live interaction that was required.

The Show was streamed live into the organisers event web portal.

This proved to be a very cost-effective and secure way to produce an interactive online awards
