Richard Hookings with the Polecam and Canon C300 on the latest series of Sherlock For the BBC

Filming on the set of Sherlock

The multi BAFTA award winning drama is now on its third series and for this particular episode the production team had to achieve a fairly challenging shot from a very narrow balcony 5 floors up in a hotel in London and Polecam was chosen as the camera crane to deliver the goods.

"The balcony was extremely narrow and even rigging the Polecam was a challenge in such a tight space. The bedroom that led to the balcony was barely big enough for a single bed and the balcony floor space, with all it's wide ledges, was half the width of the tripod spreader at its narrowest point. A makeshift platform was built to raise the floor of the balcony and In order to swing the Polecam the doors to the balcony were removed."

"You could not have achieved this shot from that balcony in any other way - it looked impossible and totally impractical but once again the Polecam was able to deliver."

Richard Hookings is one of the most highly experienced Polecam operators in the UK and is available with a full broadcast Polecam rig and a choice of cameras including C300, 5D and Toshiba HD minicam.
