The Bolds are just like you and me. They live in an ordinary house on an ordinary street, and they love to laugh. But there’s one slight difference… They’re hyenas!

The creative approach was to keep the cameras as playful as the show! We used a Furio and Steadicam to bring the movement in the piece to the forefront of the capture. The Steadicam also allowed audiences to follow the action through the set pieces, offering them a new perspective on the show, as if they were part of the action too.

Schools were able to view the capture for free in partnership with YouTubeKIDS, Andersen Press and BookTrust before it was made available to everyone else.

"We really enjoyed our collaboration with North South. They captured the dynamism, joy and liveness of our production of The Bolds and brought it to the screen in all its technicolour glory. We very much look forward to our next collaboration with Matt, Sarah and the team".
