Here’s a big shout out to the crew and creatives behind the best looking show on Australian TV just now.
It’s a shame the networks no longer show credits after a show, nor do they post a crew list anywhere on the show website – least not where CX can see.
X-Factor Australia is lush, clever and cleverly lit. The almost wrap around LED screens give the crew a massive palette, and wow – it is used for great effect and really brings the virtual set alive.
Here’s a clip – and below, a full list of the creatives and suppliers on the vision side. CX salutes you all!
