Lights – Camera – Action

The film industry, like many others, can be extremely demanding. There are actors, extras, camera and lighting engineers, make up artists, canteen trucks – all on stand by for the next shot. The military vehicle, vital to a desert scene being filmed in Morocco, cannot be delayed in Spain – period, no question.

The same applied to the replica Roman Galley, used in the remake of The Clash of the Titans. Originating in St Austell, the main challenge was delivery to a remote port on the west coast of Tenerife, in the care of the same driver and remaining on the specialist trailer throughout the journey. Needless to say, STG made it on time, only to be asked a few weeks later to re-collect and deliver to the water tank at Pinewood Studios, where the final shots were taken.

Moving on to artwork, in the main, this has involved oversize sculptures. At the smaller end, there were the Henry Moore sculptures, starting a European tour from Antwerp – others deliveries include the Sothebys Summer Exhibition at Chatsworth, the Venice Biennale, Berkeley Square in the middle of Mayfair, the steel shards in Finsbury Square etc.

Perhaps the most striking was the bronze reclining nude, residing in the Broadgate development, next to Liverpool Street Station. Originating from a foundry in Florence and too large to transit by road, this presented one of the more unusual challenges.
