topic icon Lighting crew hire for TV advert in Paignton for Jurassic Fibre

Mark just spent a couple of days in Paignton, Devon, filming with Simple Media and T&S Creative Communications. He was proving wet lighting hire for a TV advert for a major internet provider Jurassic Fibre and helped with other aspects of setup and filming.

Mark arrived on the first day to help to set-up the lights that he was providing - a full setup with daylight and colour LED panels and softboxes and some practical lighting. The crew spent the whole day getting the sets dressed, the lighting in place and blockings shots for the next day. Mark also assisted in the dolly and crane setups as it was a small crew.
