One of the packages Mediapack produced for British Canoeing's show on Sky Sports - 'Go Canoe!' The show was a 30 minute mix of World Cup competition highlights and magazine features.
Mediapack produced all 16 magazine features for the show over a period of two months, ranging from 'beginners guides' to different competition disciplines to athlete profiles, recreational paddling guides and safety tips with the RNLI. All packages are currently showing on British Canoeing TV on YouTube.
With a large number of different contributors to co-ordinate, numerous locations and venues to visit and extremely tight deadlines, there was only half a day's filming available per package. That equated to around four hours to film interviews, demonstration action by contributors, anchor presenter Helen Reeves's links and her action sequences on the water (both from the bank and POV on boards).
Working to such tight timescales meant that production had to be kept simple, with volunteer contributors, the weather and on water logistics all factors that needed to be continually tended to.
