Sony FS7 selected for iNumber Number the series


iNumber Number, the film which brought Sdumo Mtshali, winner of talent search competition Class Act, his film break will soon be taking over the small screen as a drama series by production company Quizzical Pictures.

Set in the township of Alexandra, Johannesburg and its urban juxtaposing settings in Yeoville and Houghton, “The series is a mixture of gritty and sumptuous – because of the story and where it is set,” explains executive producer Harriet Gavshon.

The series promises to be action-packed with all the drama and suspense, guns, squibs, car chases and shoot-outs that one can expect from a crime-thriller TV series. With this in mind, two Sony FS7 cameras were selected to shoot the series: “They handle handheld very well and can shoot up to 4K which we needed for the action sequences.”

Gavshon expands: “The series is being shot on two cameras with easy rigs – so it has a handheld feel, like the original movie, to give it a sense of immediacy. But it is not as stylised as the movie – we adapted the style to appeal to a television audience and for the small screen. It’s a different proposition but hopefully as exciting and tense as the original movie.”

Mzansi Magic viewers can expect to see the first episode of iNumber Number the series on 9 July 2017.
