Trickbox TV Provides Full Studio Services For Babylon

Trickbox TV has provided full studio services for Babylon, Channel 4's comedy-drama set around London's police force.
The feature-length production, written by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, directed by Danny Boyle and produced by Nightjack Ltd, is scheduled for broadcast at 9pm on 9 February 2014 on Channel 4.
"We needed a central London venue with the appropriate City views for a mayoral news conference, and Tower Bridge TV Studios proved ideal in every way," said Tony Hood, Location Manager. "The view is perfect, but it also comes with the bonus of a fully equipped studio set-up. That meant we could just turn up with our crew and a couple of hard drives. Everything we needed was on site and ready to go, ably supported by the Trickbox team, so the shoot was really quick and easy – we could get in and out well within our schedule."
Tower Bridge TV Studios, managed by Trickbox TV, comes equipped with full HD multi-camera capability, a fully saturated lighting grid, a production/gallery control room, a sound control room, a chroma key blue-screen wall, air conditioning, and the all-important floor to ceiling windows with removable neutral density (0.9 ND). Trickbox TV can also offer Final Cut Pro editing services, green rooms and meeting rooms, and crew.
Liam Laminman, Managing Director, Trickbox TV, said: "We're pleased and proud that a drama project of Babylon's calibre and pedigree chose to use the Studios and had a great experience doing so. Tower Bridge TV Studios have a lot to offer for a wide range of productions, from corporate videos to feature films – the Studio views are second to none, as are our technical services and equipment."
