4K Video for FA Cup Final

Last weekend saw gassProductions creative director Dan Radford called into action assisting Sportsbeat with their coverage of the SSE Women’s FA Cup final at the home of football, Wembley Stadium.

Honouring UK’s future athletes

As much as we’d love to be providing the live coverage, gassProductions was documenting a day in the life of 3 very special VIP guests.

Official Women’s FA cup sponsors SSE had invited along 3 female athletes they sponsor as part of a reward for their outstanding achievements this year.

gP’s Dan Radford worked closely alongside the crew from Sportsbeat conducting interviews and collecting b-roll for a corporate flavoured film following the 3 athletes enjoying their special day.

Sony FS7 is key for great content

Dan’s weapon of choice (camera) was Sony’s FS7. This outstanding camera, equipped with Sony’s G OSS F4.0 28-135mm, provided the required versatility to not only capture 4K/HD but also a mixture of framerates, a perfect “run n’gun” for this scenario.

In the end victory went to Man City ladies, winning their first FA Cup. After the match our VIP’s enjoyed special access to the players and press room. A fully comprehensive match day experience to be cherished for a long time.

We’re already looking forward to the next shoot with the amazing crew at Sportsbeat…men’s final perhaps!? watch this space.
