Coolbox Partners with ITV to celebrate Emmerdale 50th Anniversary

To celebrate turning 50 years old, beloved British soap Emmerdale aired an hour long special, featuring all the chaos and drama you’d expect from the long-standing show after half a century on air. From epic storms ravaging the (usually peaceful) Yorkshire village, a deadly cow stampede and a caravan flying through the air.

Following the airing of the special, Coolbox were asked to create a piece of online content featuring cast member Lisa Riley chatting to the three Directors of the 50th Anniversary episodes; Michael Lacey, Tim O’Mara and Ian Bevitt.

Our crew opted to shoot the hour-long conversation at the Emmerdale Studios in Leeds; using one of the show’s sets as our backdrop.

The round table was shot on the full Sony FX range; the FX9, FX6 and small but mighty FX3 on the Rhino Arc II motorized slider.
