ITV Burjj Khalifa


Project: On Assignment – Burj Khalifa
Clients: ITV
Location: Dubai, UAE
Deliverables: Extended feature for network broadcast

media971 was commissioned to film an extended feature for ITV’s On Assignment programme, broadcast on the UK’s ITV commercial channel.

Working with ITV News correspondent John Irvine, we worked for three days on the shoot. media971 partner Paul Mongey shot spectacular footage with the window-cleaning team on the 159th floor as the film focused on the building’s unique infrastructure, also examining how security, catering and even the elevators function.

We then assembled a loose compilation of the material for ITV in London, where it was assembled to provide half of the 30-minute long network show.
