After a jam-packed few months of preparation, we’re finally kitted out to take on our three overlapping jobs in November! We’ve had all of our kit being used on the jobs out, tried and tested; we also invested in our fourth Blackmagic 4K Video Assist Monitor.
As you well may know, we’ve got an extremely busy upcoming November here at Cypher Media; with four simultaneous jobs occurring in Nice and London, with two jobs one-after-the-other in Prague. We’ll have Cypher crew dotted around each event; Jake will be in London, Chris will be in Nice and Adrian will be in Prague.
Next month Stuart will be attending an IOSH course; IOSH stands for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. It is a three-day course that will cover working safely and managing safely. Working safely is aimed at all employees; this will cover the essentials of health and safety in the workplace. Managing safely, which is aimed at managers, supervisors and team leaders, will give them the skills and knowledge to manage health and safety within teams.
Since July of 2017 we’ve been working very hard on a programme that has been tried and tested throughout the duration of this, and last year. Cypher Media’s POD, or Programmable Onsite Display, is a real-time timetable system used for creating and managing event schedules.
Over the course of this week we’ve been busy preparing our kit for a Financial Services Conference being held in Paris, and a Future of Work Conference that will take place shortly after in Madrid.
We only had a small room, with no windows, so we had to be clever about how we set up our shot. We used one of our Dedolights and gobo projector attachment to create a window blind shadow on the wall behind the subject. Coupled with our easily portable LED lights, this created a studio like environment in the small space.
