We are proud to have produced a show for Sky Sports Television, called Golf Juice!
Golf Juice is a fresh new take on a golf show. Hosted by Jimmy Bullard, Zoe Hardman, Johnathan Joseph and Mark Crossfield, it’s a fun, fast-paced and entertaining mix of celebrity guests, challenges, competitions, news, viewer’s videos and general golf-related hi-jinx shot against a stunning backdrop at the Peninsular driving Range in Greenwich.
From being introduced to the concept in March this year by our friends at Grey Pocket in London, things started getting serious as late as May – with the first episodes due to be filmed in late June!
With the intention of covering this year’s golfing calendar, time was running against us, and our team has since worked many long days over the past two months, and some even longer nights! As well as helping to write, shape, film and edit the shows, we’ve also filmed the offset videos (VTs) for inclusion in the show. So it’s fair to say all this has been achieved in record time!
On Sunday 26th June, the set elements turned up and another late night was called for. The next day at 8AM, our 24 strong crew descended on the location to build and light the set ready for filming, and episodes 1 and 2 were filmed that day.
The editing followed, and the show was passed for broadcast by Sky Sports within the first few days of July. We are pleased to now have a slot every Wednesday throughout July on Sky Sports 4HD, with episode 1 being repeated at 7PM and 10PM Wed 6th July – either side of the footie.
Overall this was, of course, an exciting and demanding experience for us as video producers and we have been busy continuing to create and film the first four episodes of this ground-breaking show. But thanks to a fantastic crew and our awesome presenters, we hope to be working towards making this a regular, seasonal production.
Who needs Top Gear anyway?!
