Survivor returned to Fiji (Mamanuca Islands) for the 33rd and 34th iterations of the long-running reality show. For the past 12 years, VER has made the ‘round-the-world trek, every season, to provide rapid deployment gear and production support to this most rugged of reality TV experiences. We’ve worked closely with the Survivor Production Team, behind-the-scenes, to deliver the right package for each themed show, sometimes arriving at location months before production begins. The capture of the action is a three-month project, often extended to six months since back-to-back shooting has become commonplace.
