Ed Moore and Camera Team, Vera 7
Ulf Brantas and Camera Team, Inspector George Gently
The Judges praised Steve Paton for nice gimbal work — Apricot Alley stood out. They admired the tracking shots, and good use of drone on beach shots in Inspector George Gently. But the Vera 7 team's work stood out because it was visually exciting, and created real tension. The use of negative space added to the story. Great briefing notes. The portfolio was immersive and masterful.
