Although many of the sports events were canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, we surprisingly joined a partnership with a new customer, European Cricket Network. We covered several weekend events and one weekly event of the European Cricket Series.
One of the interesting and challenging things during these events was the fact that most the events were held in the small village fields around Czech Republic, in the center of the beautiful nature, but without any technical background on the other hand. That’s why we had to arrange things such as a diesel aggregate for our OBV, and we also had to construct really high camera towers to meet the camera’s angle requirements, and so on.
During August, we were preparing another event, this time outside of Czech Republic, in the spectacular nature of Iceland. We had sent our Flight Pack with our crew there, unfortunately, just literally after the landing gear of our plane touched the ground in Keflavik Airport, the event was cancelled because of the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Iceland. Finally, just as a little compensation for our customer, we rented the European Cricket Series Trophy and made some funny movie with this trophy going through some of the most known places in Iceland.
