Praise for Procam Television’s crew:
‘I was lucky enough to have the support of Procam Television’s camera & sound crew with me on the camera team working on a very large job in a very difficult environment, the Jordanian desert. Our DIT or Data Wrangler was totally committed and utterly superb. At no time did he cause concern or give rise to any worry that our rushes were in the best of hands. A true asset to the team. The Camera Operator was simply unbelievable in his total unerring and energetic response to the daily challenges thrown at him. A master of his craft you could say. He managed a small camera team with the confidence, humour and skill of someone who has been doing his job for years and years. I honestly believe this production would have faltered if I had not had this crew member from Procam by my side as a trusted companion. Procam should be congratulated for the selection process that brings stars to their team!’
– Chris Yacoubian, DoP
‘I found both the DoP and sound guy very friendly and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and would definitely work with them again, but I would also recommend them to anyone else wanting a camera crew’
Praise for Procam Television:
‘My vision for the show was to create a series (The incredible Mr Goodwin) that looked as expensive and as filmic as possible. But this came with a challenge as this could undermine the stunts making them feel unbelievable. So I chose to cover the majority of stunts with a live, handheld documentary feel to balance this and capture the spectacular reality of the performances.
The next challenge was how to achieve this high-end look on our limited budget - answer? Turn to Procam! Their commitment to excellence and quality, and their highly experienced assistants were essential to solving it and getting the job done.
This show was made before the F5 and F55 was released, so the decision of which format to use was not straight forward, after much consultation with MD John Brennan, I chose to shoot on the F3 cameras with PL glass and Pix240s, their ungainly bulk proved a worthwhile burden as their image quality and cinematic look was fantastic’
