film studio rigging

The use of scaffolding in film is almost as old as the medium itself. When the early pioneers of cinema wanted to shoot from above, they needed a stable platform from which to mount their bulky camera equipment. Scaffolding was the obvious solution and “rigging” became an essential job for the film crew.

Modern studios still use rigging for lights, cameras and sound recording equipment and it all needs to be put in place and safety checked by experts.

WWSA has supplied scaffolding materials for one of the largest Film Studios in the world, including one of the most famous of all film series. Contractually, we are not allowed to say which film series it was but we hope no muggle reading this would snitch on us.

We supply bespoke aluminium access products that are used for camera platforms during filming.
