Sunday Night Snooker Opener, Grand Prix 2009 from Idustrial Revolution on Vimeo.

All shot on the Canon 5DmkII, this opener was at the top of the show for the BBC’s sunday night coverage of the Grand Prix Snooker 2009.

Cameraman Colin Nuttall got some amazing low light behind the scenes action. Edited in FCP by Peter Wiggins after being converted using some custom Compressor droplets.

Full credit to IMG & the BBC for getting never seen before images onto the screen for snooker fans.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
