The Big Allotment Challenge

Full post production on 6 x 60 min entertainment series for BBC 2.

Nine pairs of the country's best allotmenteers take part in The Big Allotment Challenge, a brand new series hosted by Fern Britton.

Over six weeks they are put to the test, as they attempt to harvest prize-winning fruits, vegetables and flowers for show day. Plus, their preserving skills will be tested to the limit as they are challenged to produce jams, chutneys, cordials, pickles and jellies.

Shot on C300, 5D and XDCAM, Colin Peters graded the series with the Nucoda Film Master. His brief was to create a bright, lively and vibrant air to the programme. By using bold colours and textures along with softening, Peters created a focal depth on the book end wildlife macro and landscape shots, whilst fully enhancing the reality sections of the programme.

Laurence Gale mixed the audio with Pro Tools 11 and Tam Osman completed the online in Avid Symphony.
