This great foodie program has begun airing in Australia, with Icon’s Nick Bolger as Director of Photography.
Shane dedicated the latest episode (ep 2) blog to Nick.
Thanks for the lovely post Shane. We forged a true and great friendship on this shoot, and I believe that in some way this shines through onto the small screen for all to see. Well done buddy.
2014 started where we left off with UEFA in 2013; running about all over Europe.
So far this year, we have filmed in Marbella, Madrid twice, Lisbon three times, Sevilla three times, Barcelona, Macedonia, Malta, Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia and Munich where this piece was shot. Next we’re off to Hungary at the end of July for the U19 Championship. All content filmed by Felipe and JP, and directed/produced by Nick Bolger.
Our two-month filming odyssey throughout Turkey comes to light with the first episode of the series being aired this July 31st on SBS in Australia.
Icon’s relationship with the Lauerus foundation goes back to 2006, when the award ceremony was held in Barcelona for the first time.
During each year since then we provide camera crews and producers to cover Laureus foundation work in the US and Spain.
And this year we were back at the prestigeous awards ceremony in Malaysia providing a producer/director and camera team, covering events previous to the ceremony night and full coverage of the red carpet and back stage with names such as event host Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Foxx as well as all the sports stars present. We also focused on providing specific coverage for all Spanish media outlets for Laureus.
The four-part series was aired in November 2013 in over 100 countries around the world.
The final episode of the 2013 Bartender of the Year was shot in Barcelona’s Monumental Bullring.
Icon provided full production services for this large-scale UK TV production. We provided camera operators, multi-cam live set-up, scanner elite crane, steadicam, production, assistants, etc.
The hyper-successful car series Top Gear came to Spain to film an episode (s20, ep.3), and asked icon to provide the best aerial team available. We filmed an high speed sequence on a disused airport strip south of Madrid using a twin engine helicopter with the Wescam system, 10 feet off the ground at speeds over 200 km/h. See the video here
Icon just provided full production services for a large-scale UK TV production filmed in the now unused Monumental Bull Ring. We were asked to provide camera operators, multi-cam live set-up, scanner elite crane, steadicam, production, assistants, etc. We’ll let you know what it was once it airs.
Once again, Icon provided full production services for the highly popular US reality TV series The Bachelorette. Aired on ABC US, and with an average audience of 20 million viewers, The Bachelorette is a monster in terms of production.
With over 150 cast, crew and production staff, Icon provided full location services, all local production staff, art buyers, transport, helicopter shots and more.
