Rovers - Jellylegs Productions Ltd
Director: Craig Cash
DOP: Daf Hobson
Line Producer: Lynn Roberts
After gaining a following in front of the camera, Joe Wilkinson (Him & Her) and David Earl (Derek) have teamed up to pen a down-to-earth comedy about the fans of a local lower league football team Redbridge Rovers, produced by Jellylegs, the production company co-founded by Craig Cash (The Royle Family).
Starring Sue Johnston (The Royle Family), Rovers promises to be an original take on the goings on of lower league football and will give audiences the opportunity to pull up a stool in the team’s clubhouse; the home for this one big family of supporters and their useless club.
This production was one of the first real world tests for the Arri Alexa Mini shooting in a drama scenario. We built a bespoke rig for DOP Daf Hobson all powered from an Anton Bauer battery belt which enabled him to mount a Preston MDRIII, Teradek TX and monitoring off camera keeping it as lightweight & manoeuvrable as possible for a production shooting at pace with the majority handheld.
Equipment supplied: 1x Arri Amira, 1x Arri Alexa Mini, Zeiss Superspeeds
