The Project

Flux Broadcast has worked with some of the biggest names in rock, from The Foo Fighters to Metallica. But when the Foals team got in touch and asked us to provide full broadcast support for their monumental show at Alexandra Palace, we got very excited indeed. Here was a chance to film one of our favourite bands in our home city and share it with the world. The only catch? We had one week to pull it all together…

The Goal

The scale of the show meant bringing in our full 4k gallery setup, with 16 Arri cameras all recording in razor sharp 4k. Foals are electrifying live, so we wanted to capture the intensity of the gig and give the show’s global audience a true sense of what they were missing. A combination of jibs and tower cameras offered some breathtaking sweeps, taking in the sheer size of the audience, while robotic hot heads, steadicams, pit and onstage hand held cameras let us get up close and personal with the band. We placed cameras in the capacity crowd to keep the online audience fully immersed. Some brave Flux crew even filmed in the mosh pit for the full Foals experience!

The Impact

Over fifty crew worked tirelessly on site to deliver an unbelievable live recording. The outcome was made even more impressive by the fact that we only had a week to pull it all together.

As we’ve said before; Flux loves a challenge, and this one was definitely worth it.

We delivered a range of services, including:

  • Broadcast Production
  • Vision Mix
  • Outside Broadcast Facilities
  • Robotic Mini Cams
