Enriching Community

Some describe the production industry as a ‘village community’. We enjoy connecting and creating platforms to meet people, share knowledge and grow. Keep a sharp eye out for events that are geared to enhance skill, build confidence and establish friendships.

  • Lens projector Masterclass

    Conducted by our Head of Optical Engineering Eddie Koehler, you will master how to truly interpret optics on our lens projection facilities. This practical based workshop is aimed towards both Loaders and well seasoned Focus Pullers. Due to strong interest and limited spaces we host these classes monthly and will be a mainstay until we are satisfied every camera professional has mastered this vital tool.

    Who doesn’t love a BBQ? To celebrate the sunshine (that we are surely guaranteed by mid July) we are inviting you to join us for delicious fire cooked food and ice cold drinks. We will catch up with friends and was lyrical about how great the shooting season is- hopefully! Spaces will be ample but not unlimited so please do register your interest for further information.
