FILM & TV
HANDS ON gives expert technical services to film, TV and production companies across the country. We also work with photographers and media companies on adverts, photoshoots and promotional material.
At Hands On, there's nothing we like more than a good explosion. We were therefore very pleased to be asked to simulate an earthquake for the BBC recently, as part of their "Great British Countryside" series. To test the effectiveness of the monitoring equipment at "Earthquake House", we set up some explosives and stood back... Watch a clip here.
We took a trip down memory lane recently, providing staging for a Scottish special of the Late Late Show, filmed in the Tron Theatre, Glasgow. Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson started his lucrative career in the Tron Theatre... as did our Technical Director, Perry Costello. Perry was Stage Manager there while Craig was starting out in his acting career, some twenty years ago!
