topic icon Kit hire for Netflix Sex Education Series 3 shoot

We have just provided live mixing kit to the producers of the upcoming Netflix show; Sex Education series 3.

Production of the popular show was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but it was officially announced on Twitter in September that production had begun. Star Gillian Anderson (Jean Milburn) has revealed the cast and crew are taking every precaution to make filming as safe as possible, including being tested multiple times a week in the show’s very own laboratory.

Due to Sex Education’s very nature, it requires a certain degree of close contact and intimacy – and so there was a time when filming was looking very unlikely. But now production is going ahead following a filming bubble being set up in the shooting location in Wales.

We supplied the production with a Blackmagic ATEM Television Studio Pro 4K Switcher, 3x Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio Mini HD/4K 6G-SDI Recorder/Players and memory cards to with the recorders.

The series is being filmed in Wales (Sorry we can't post up the location) and hopefully should premiere 2021.
