Derbyshire company’s crew return to UK after an incredible Australian production

Local firm Cloudbass have travelled almost 17000 kilometres to be part of the team broadcasting the six day cycling series in Brisbane Australia. The event concluded yesterday (April 14th) The Cloudbass team were supporting Aurora Media who are working with Eurosport to broadcast the event.

From their headquarters in Ripley they have been planning the trip for months. This meant flying across all the kit in a very large container and setting it all up on the other side of the world. The filming set up in the industry is called a flyaway. The crew is made up of eight members of Cloudbass.

2.4 tonnes of kit was flown out to Australia which included 10 cameras.

Steve Knee, Managing Director, who led the team said: “I’m so proud of our team and their delivery for Aurora Media Worldwide on the Six Day Cycling. I’m really impressed with how little kit and people we took, and this is testament to innovative technology that was used and a tightly integrated staff team. We were delighted to be chosen for this prestigious work and it reflects our flexibility and our forward-thinking approach.”

Cloudbass was formed in 2002 out of a desire to do things a little bit differently. Starting with crewing, the company quickly gained a reputation for providing people across the range of disciplines within Outside Broadcast. This experience provided the company directors with a unique opportunity to see a wide range of different productions for a vast number of clients with a number of specialist suppliers. They have worked on and are working on a vast array of programme and events including BBC’s Question Time, Springwatch, The Queen’s 90th Birthday, live football and Goodwood Festival of Speed.
