The Buzzer is a riveting game show where two competitors compete during the episode to win prizes. An international game show format produced in France, Switzerland and Turkey, the Arabic version was produced in Dubai for Saudi Channel 1.
Pyramedia Media Productions & Consulting was contracted to produce and manage the production of the Buzzer Season 1 for Saudi TV. Thanks to our extensive experience and successful record of working with the Pyramedia throughout Europe and the Middle East.
We have successfully up-scaled the entire The Buzzer production process, and overhauled both the technical and creative offering across the board, additionally advising on staging and lighting strategies and managed the whole project from its initial conception to the final delivery of the recorded episodes.
Our services spanned from the initial coordination with the Set Designer(s) and Set Build partner and coordinating with the different A/V partners to ensure that the production set is ready to take the project towards a successful delivery thus making sure Pyramedia can deliver what they do best leaving all technical and venue readiness to us.
Project management in film and video production offers valuable insights into one of the most demanding and ever-changing project-based industries, which forces project managers to think outside the box.
We came on-board prior to the TV production ever existed and started the pre-discussion with the end-client and stakeholders to shape up the contracts and in parallel see the set design and set builders work in accordance with what is going on with the discussions between the stakeholders and the end-client and seek approvals to initiate the relocation of resources and technical readiness of the production venue or production studio is fit for purpose to accommodate a year-long demanding production that will take place and think of all the possibilities that the production team might need or require during that year.
Lead and initiate discovery and planning of client engagements including requirements gathering, scoping, budgeting and scheduling, develop key scope documents.
Lead and identify synergies between creative design and technical implementation and control project budgets, timelines and resource allocations.
“Our project management’s job in this project is to make sure everyone else’s lives are the most organized they can possibly be so that they can be efficient with their time” . Essentially, we are there to oversee, plan, and make sure the project is executed successfully—and keep everything under control during each stage.
A project manager’s role and day to day schedule can vary considerably depending on the industry, company, and specific project.
