TF1 presents a new version of the French TV reality game show Je Suis Une Célébrité, Sortez-moi De Là, which takes place in South Africa this year. The 11 celebrities that make up TF1’s show spent several intense weeks on location.
Commissioned by ITV production studios, EUROMEDIA was fortunate enough to be able to set up its cameras in the Blyde River Canyon and faced a one-of-a-kind challenge.. .
Filming in South Africa for the first time, the EUROMEDIA team of 20 that accompanied the celebrities faced the challenge of setting up filming facilities in a totally different environment to what they are normally used to.
In total 1 flycase with a multirig EBOX, 25 PTZ video cameras including three with infrared sensors, 15 wireless microphones and 4 kms of cable travelled to the natural setting of the Blyde River Canyon in South Africa for 22 days of uninterrupted shooting.
The major challenge facing the EUROMEDIA technical crews was to seamlessly integrate the elements in such a way that the celebrities would totally forget about the presence of the cameras. Despite the humidity and rain of the typical tropical weather conditions the challenge was met!
Watch the end result tonight in prime time on TF1.
