oXyFire & Chrome Productions utilise Quicklink Studio to create a virtual remote production (REMI).
An interview with high-profile Football Manager – Comedian Conor Moore meets Jose Mourinho in a virtual space.
We recently used Quicklink Studio in a remote virtual production workflow interview between Comedian Conor Moore and top European football manager Jose Mourinho. Jose was based in a studio in London, and Conor based in a second studio in Dublin, Ireland. This is true REMI virtual production.
For the virtual production workflow, we used Quicklink Studio ST55 to provide a conversation between London and Dublin. Not forgetting oXyFireHQ aka the Sheffield based Master Control Room (MCR). Using Scarlett audio-interfaces into laptops, Quicklink facilitated a bi-directional conference call between all parties.
To achieve a successful virtual studio production (aka REMI workflow), we carefully positioned our guests in a green-screen studio. The green screen allowed us to composited a virtual studio in-the-cloud. Our clients were watching from Switzerland and USA and the feed also prooved useful for our Director who was based at the London studios. To ensure the look of a natural conversation, we strategically placed monitors at our guests eye-line. This made it appear as though they were making eye contact throughout the interview.

“Quicklink is a vital part of our virtual remote production workflow. I needed a system I had faith in and could trust to deliver. I’ve used Quicklink Studio many times over the pandemic and it’s proved rock solid. I wouldn’t want to use anything else, especially on such high-profile projects.” said Jay Rozanski, Creative Director at oXyFire Media.
Hannah Chitty, Producer at Chrome Productions added: “This was a very technical job and as always oXyFire Media were keen to take the challenge on. The project encountered a few challenges which we managed to overcome. However, the results provided by oXyFire and the Quicklink solutions were fantastic.”
