News Image
Movietech has revealed that it has been working alongside the production teams delivering the new drama series, Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick.

A partnership between Channel 4 and Sony Pictures Television, Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick is a new series of 10 individual dramas featuring the short stories of the science fiction novelist. The cinematographers on board for the production includes Ole Bratt Birkeland, Ollie Downey, David Katznelson, Tony Slater Ling and Felix Wiedemann, each shooting one episode apiece to help define the individual looks that accompany each story.

Servicing the five UK-based shoots, Movietech worked alongside production teams to deliver equipment and support to the crews tasked with bringing the stories to life. Alongside the Directors of Photography, Movietech helped build a suitably versatile kit list centred around a RED DRAGON and WEAPON Helium 8K, matched with a selection of the company's lensing options, plus a supporting grip package.

John Buckley, Managing Director, Movietech, commented: "Electric Dreams has pulled together some really exciting creative crews. It really is fantastic to have this opportunity to be supporting such a strong group of cinematographers with a range of equipment that can meet the individual artistic requirements of each episodes in the series."
