Screencraft has produced the live show of the City2Surf in 2018 and 2019, an event that sees more than 80 000 people hit Sydney’s Eastern suburbs to compete for first prize, to achieve personal goals, and to run for bragging rights. We were engaged by Fairfax Media (now NINE) to produce the live stream of the annual event, which has been running for 48 years, and is the largest fun run in the Southern Hemisphere.
We had a crew of over 35 people spread across the 14 kilometres of the course, including motorcycle cameramen, commentators and more. We broadcast via satellite signal, with online redundancies spread throughout the course route.Along with capturing all the action including interviews with the winners, celebrities and general public, we managed all facets of pre-production. This meant assembling a crew of experienced cameraman, producers, assistants, and technicians, and managing logistics, scheduling and rehearsals.
