I was thrilled to once again collaborate with the ITV team and create this new Britain’s Got Talent extravaganza directed by Oscar Cariss.

Meet the judges and hosts as you’ve never seen them before and see what THEIR talents are! The Mill created CG hula hoops, judges coming down from the ceiling and a CG whip for  Simon Cowell to welcome the BGT team back to the judges table.

The shoot was great fun. For health and safety reasons the whip used by Simon Cowell was entirely done in CG. He only used the base of the whip on set, which was covered in green gaffer tape in order to help with the 3D tracking.  Dec was also rigged using a wire suspended from the ceiling.  A CG hula-hoop was then added in 3D, matching his movement on the shot. For Ant’s plate juggling, he was shot swinging sticks and then the Chinese plates were added in post.
