Film 4 at Somerset House

Project

One of London’s best loved open air cinemas returned in August 2016 with an extended programme of films that would run over 14 nights.  This was presented in the magnificent 18th century courtyard at Somerset House on a giant screen with full surround sound for an amazing outdoor cinema experience.   This was one of the highlights of the summer calendar.

Brief

The brief entailed was to design and build a bespoke fully finished two tiered projection tower that would project a number of films old and new onto a large screen for our friends over at Film4 for the annual outdoor cinema experience.

Solution

Using our design programmes, our in house design team produced 2D and 3D renders that were all signed off and passed onto our production team.  To achieve the two tiered projection, we opted for our scaffolding system as it can be built in almost any configuration allowing for the correct projection heights.  This proved to be the perfect solution for our client.  Knowing the venue and the limited build time, our carpentry team prefabricated and prepared the exterior finish at our in house workshop making for a seamless onsite installation resulting in minimal finishing on site.  The complete structure went on to stay at Somerset House for the 14 day event, this was a great success.
