UK - Film and TV crewing specialist Studioforce was appointed by Shiver, an arm of ITV Studios, to support the delivery of this year’s Pride of Britain Awards.
The event was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 29 October and Studioforce provided stage hands, lighting technicians, carpenters, scenic supervisors, scenic artists and followspot operators.
The company worked closely with Shiver’s freelance production designer Paul Houston, supplying a team of experienced freelancers to work alongside the lighting and set design teams to create the Pride of Britain Awards’ set and backdrop.
The tight timeframe presented the Studioforce crew with its largest challenge. With just 48 hours to complete the entire project, from unloading the first piece of equipment from the truck and building the set, to running the show, completing the de-rig and the last truck leaving the venue.
Studioforce also provided experienced crew to assist the show’s primary lighting supplier PRG and screen provider Anna Valley, and follow spot operators for during the show itself.
Marie Hession, the Pride of Britain Awards’ production manage, comments: “It was a pleasure working with the Studioforce team. Having a company that is also able to provide the additional labour for other departments ensured the load in, set and lighting install and de-rig were seamless and in the lead up to the event having one supplier to liaise with made life much easier.”
The Pride of Britain Awards 2018 was broadcast on ITV on Tuesday, 6 November to honour British people who have acted bravely or extraordinarily in challenging situations.
