Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading Cloud video platform FORscene, is pleased to announce today that Twenty Twenty has chosen to use FORscene as its logging and rough cut editing platform.
Twenty Twenty, a Shed Media Company, is one of the UKs most respected independent television production companies. It has successfully built on the legacy of its pioneering factual formats, the Emmy Award winning Brat Camp and the definitive living history series Lads Army and Bad Lads Army. FORscene is being used on Hoarderholics (working title), which is currently in production. It will be rolled out across a number of Twenty Twenty productions in the coming months.
Forbiddens broadcast post sales have been rising rapidly, with revenue in the six months to 30 June 2011 rising by 94%. The adoption of FORscene by Twenty Twenty, being the third new broadcast client to install FORscene in recent weeks, is building on the accelerating uptake of the FORscene platform and the confidence the industry has in the product.
Hana Canter, Head of Production at Twenty Twenty, says:
“Our production team has used FORscene in the past and requested it specifically above the other options on the market,
and I am glad to be able to bring its benefits to Twenty Twenty.
Its powerful external access capabilities work well with flexible modern logging workflows, particularly for Regional programmes and it is this area which I find particularly attractive”.
Commenting on the success of FORscene, Jason Cowan, Account Manager at Forbidden Technologies, says:
“The adoption of FORscene by a leading UK production company, Twenty Twenty, is further testament to the acceptance of the FORscene platform as an economical and yet user friendly system. We look forward to FORscene being widely adopted across Twenty Twenty productions”.
