‘No Time To Lose’ is a new programme commissioned by Insight – for international distribution – and produced by Warner Brothers. A reality show, the contestants compete in teams and individually, racing against the clock to complete mental and physical challenges – as well as a combination of both. As a twist, the 10 contestants are recognized social media contributors, with their group of followers.
No time to lose was not just a race between contestants, it was also a race down the length of South Africa.
Location Mpumalanga – starting in the north, production took place in Waterval Boven, Graskop, Hazyview and the Kruger National Park area.
Location Johannesburg – always a wonderful place to film, with urban hip meets true grit!
Location Garden Route – shooting along the length of the Garden Route, including Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, George and Mossel Bay – and included the iconic Bloukrans Bungee
Location Cape Town – the series ended with a hitch-hike into Cape Town, with the fitting finale on Table Mountain.
The challenge of shooting the entire programme in UHD produced its own unique challenges – not the least being the hi-tec cameras and lenses that not only weigh a ton, but are incredible expensive.
The logistics of moving people down the country created its own challenges – getting people there is relatively easy, but getting the specialist cargo there was a rush.
Using our abandoned hospital was great – love watching the ghost hunters marauding around!
