ELP first to deploy latest rigging technology at Pinewood Studios

Earlier this year ELP opened a Pinewood base office and stores dedicated to servicing film and drama productions.
The company have since provided location lighting and power on a diverse range of productions including ‘Green Green Grass’ (the BBC’s ‘Only Fools and Horses’spin off), ‘Nighty Night’ with Angus Deayton and surreal comedy ‘The Mighty Boosh’.
Add ‘New Tricks’, ‘Blessed’, ‘Shellseekers’, and ‘IT Crowd’ to the drama list and you can see that ELP Pinewood has been very busy.
Six months on, and ELP is now providing specialist rigging services at Pinewood.
“We are delighted to be the first supplier based at Pinewood to bring the latest rigging technology to the studios” says Managing Director Ronan Willson. “We have just installed a complex hoist and tracking system for a feature being filmed here.”
The structure uses 2 x 40 m tracks to automate the movement of lighting pods along the studio. A computerised winch system enables 4 x 20KW heads each side to be tracked at various speeds and heights as required.
ELP will be greatly expanding rigging stocks and services at Pinewood including free workshops to feature riggers, gaffers and construction staff wishing to gain a full working knowledge of the techniques and equipment available.
Contact Toby Dare on 01753 785700 for dates and times of sessions.
