Production planning

From initial concept to finished programmes, we manage the whole process from consultation to delivery.

Budgeting, layout, music, graphic styles, programme content, acquisition and post production are the factors that have to be balanced when planning any production. Airwaves has the experience to assess any job from the smallest audio item to a full series of television programmes and to produce the desired finished result.

Airwaves were responsible for bringing Ellen MacArthur to television, teaching her the camera and communications techniques that she now uses so naturally, and which have made her a household name beyond the confines of her sport. We planned and produced Ellen's first television programmes, as well as making the promotional videos that were responsible for her obtaining major sponsorship.

Steve Ancsell was Executive Producer for the ITV1 network coverage of the BT Global Challenge 1999/2000 and the director/producer of ITV1 coverage of the Volvo Ocean Race 2000/2001. Dick Johnson was on-site daily news producer for the Volvo Ocean Race 2000/2001. We have also televised most of the world's premier boating events from the 18ft Skiff World Championships, Cowes Week, Round the World solo and crewed yacht races and records to the Champagne Mumm Admiral's Cup.
