For the 7th year running Zen provided all the sound coverage of the highly successful ITV show. From the planning, to the show records, and then into full post production at the new studio complex in Liphook Zen once again was a “one stop shop” meaning the client (ITV Productions in this case) could make one call and then not have to worry about anything further sound wise for the whole production. This year Zen engineer Kev Duff has once again been nominated for a BAFTA Craft award for his work on last years series.


Zen were delighted to be asked to record a evening of celebration at the 02 in London for the legendary producer Quincy Jones.
Quincy himself was on stage for a Q+A with a full orchestra and special guests performing hits from his decades of work. The show was an incredibly challenging gig to record being a “one day hit “ in and out in same day with limited sound checks. Having recorded the evening Zen then turned around the 2.5 hour show in a day back at studio and delivered to Radio 2 for “Friday Night Is music Night”.


Sound Supervisor and Dubbing Mixer Kevin Duff currently has 4 BAFTA craft awards for:
Ant + Decs Saturday Night Takeaway
The Festival Of Remembrance (2 BAFTAS for this event)
Paschendaele Remembered
Kevin is also nominated for BAFTA for:

Zen were honoured, to be invited by the BBC to record live, mix, and carry out the post-production on VJ-75.

Throughout this incredibly sombre and dramatic programming, Zen were working hard in the background to pull it all together. Given no time of pre-production and having to balance the strain of strict Covid-19 restrictions as well over 180 microphone lines all plugged into the desk; it’s safe to say to say it was a busy few days.

Still, however, Zen managed it and walked away with terabytes of recordings not just from the 5 record days, but also numerous rehearsals. Following the recording Zen entered into a week of challenging post-production.
