Sunset + Vine wins award for cricket production

MUMBAI: British independent sports producer Sunset + Vine has won an award at Sportel Monaco for its cricket coverage.

At the recent Sportel International Television Convention held in Monaco, Sunset + Vine won the Georges Bertellotti Golden Podium Award for the best slow-motion isolated camera shot.

The sequence was taken during the 2005 Ashes series between England and Australia and was achieved using the Tornado camera shooting at 2000 frames per second. The camera system is manufactured and distributed by Arri Media.

Sunset + Vine chairman Jeff Foulser said "It is a real honour for the company to receive such a prestigious award. Our creative team were the first to realise the 'live' potential of the Tornado camera, introducing it to the UK cricket audience in 2003. It is a tremendous example of talented producers working with brilliant technology to enhance the viewing experience".

Sunset + Vines cricket coverage has now won nearly 20 awards, from organisations including BAFTA, the RTS, Broadcast and the Indies. This year, its coverage of the 2005 Ashes Series for Channel 4 peaked at more than 8 millionj viewers, the highest ratings of the year on the network.
