When the Good Morning Britain Team contacted us to film the weather live from Ice Skate Birmingham we pulled out all the stops.
The GMB team needed to produce a live broadcast which would begin at a very early 5am.
ICC’s excellent security staff helped the ITV satellite vans gain access to Birmingham’s Centenary Square for the early setup.
Laura Tobin was very professional and always had a smile on her face. On the night before the filming the presenter practiced skating backwards with Hayden. Ice Skate Birmingham provide a team of Ice Marshall’s to assist customers. Team member Hayden enjoyed helping Laura with her rear facing endeavours.
Enthusiastic skaters from Steph’s Skate School arrived early to provide Laura with some company on the ice. Needless to say the expert skaters added the perfect amount of flair during the GMB broadcasting.
During the hours of 6AM to 9AM Chameleon was on hand to provide 360 photography which ultimately captured Laura and the Good Morning Britain team working on the ice. The great thing about full frame 360 images is the way they capture an entire moment. Viewers can really enjoy the technology looking at absolutely everything.
Panoramic photography is a complex process which uses a D-SLR camera, a special lens and multiple exposures (HDR) for each view. Experienced photographer Adam Langeveld is a passionate veteran in virtual imagery and quickly produced the high quality visuals ready for GMB’s use during the live broadcasts.

The GMB live weather segments were broadcast at various points during the morning. Laura also presented the weather whilst riding the Big Wheel. Everything went extremely well.
A GMB cameraman provided a side show displaying his Hockey skills with an ice puck. The team from Steph’s Skate school were both surprised and impressed.
After a successful broadcast Chameleon members Ian Bevis and Adam Langeveld enjoy a photo with presenter Laura Toben:
