RESUME DETAILS
  • * Martin Brown – freelance Engineering Manager, Television Outside Broadcasts
    and Managing Director, Inside Broadcast Ltd.

    I became excited by the process of television programme making when I left the Royal Navy in 1985, and made a documentary for a Housing Association. So determined was I that - as a mature student - I went on to graduate with a degree in Photography, Film and Video. Since then I have tried camera operating, sound recording, lighting and producing. I have managed a busy equipment hire desk, and have designed one of the first fibre-optic OB units in the UK. For 15 years I Unit Managed many challenging and diverse broadcasts for CTV, the UK’s busiest and most innovative OB company.

    Since starting my own company I have diversified into new fields, whilst still working as a freelance Unit Manager across the whole industry. Every day brings new challenges and I’m continually looking at new methodology to improve technical performance and save costs.

    A summary of recent work:

    Sport:

    Golf: Major tournaments including Wentworth, K Club, Celtic Manor, Crans Montana,
    Cricket: International and county matches from all UK Stadiums, 2002-2015. I also designed and supervised
    the installation of permanent cabling at all principle grounds.
    Football: Match of the Day for the BBC + numerous link facilities for international broadcasters.
    Boxing: Fights for Sky in UK and HBO in Moscow.
    Running: London Marathon at Cutty Sark, Great South Run and International Cross Country.

    Kylie: O2 Arena; Led Zeppelin: After show party (Bill Wyman, Albert Lee, Percy Sledge
    Ben E King and Sam Moore); S Club 7: Docklands Arena; Spandau Ballet: O2, V Festival 2002 – 2015; T4 on the Beach: 2012; Zade: A concert from a Roman amphitheatre in Jordan.

    Gameshows:

    Awards Ceremonies:

    The Brits: 2002-2004, Screens operation and press facilities 2005-2010, Red Carpet and After show programmes for ITV2. 2011-2016, Main show, and supervised the move from Earls Court to O2 Arena.
    BBC Music Awards: Inaugural show at Earls Court; MOBO Awards from Wembley Arena, Liverpool Arena and Glasgow SCC; Laureus World Sports Awards: 2013-2015 - the major sports awards from a different country every year. Here I was responsible for ensuring that a minimal UK crew integrated, seamlessly, with local OB companies to provide high quality productions from diverse locations such as Brazil, Malaysia and China.

    Other Jobs:

    Fame Academy: A reality talent show for BBC from various UK locations.
    Egypt Week Live: A large 5-day live OB for Channel 5, from the remote Western Desert in Egypt.
