SLS finishes end of 3rd year on a high!
As August drew to a close, we celebrated our third official year of trading and what a year it was! Despite the very turbulent and unstable times we’re delighted to report that we finished our financial year with more than double the turnover of the previous year, which means 2020/2021 is our best trading year to date.
Since we emerged from the first 2020 lockdown, the Scottish Screen industry has been booming with some phenomenal productions being filmed here over the past year. Glasgow in particular has become a filming metropolis housing large scale features such as Batman, Flash and Indiana Jones with more on the horizon like Batgirl
and Good Omens 2.
We had the privilege of working on 34 contracts this year and some of our highlights include big features such as; Starwars -Pilgrim, Flash, Disney, The Lost King and My Son, along with high end TV dramas; The Rig, VIGIL, Screw, Shetland S6 & S7, Guilt S2, Crime and Karen Pirrie. We continued to work for Children’s BBC on Princess Mirror-Belle and Molly and Mack, we supplied kit for commercials including Aviva, Remembrance day and Vodaphone and some fantastic independent shorts including Lady Baby, Pram Snatcher and Groom.
Due to social distancing measures over the past year we have seen a sharp rise in motorhome hire for use as cast greenrooms. We have coordinated many complex hires with drivers and attendants for some large scale jobs, many at short notice, in various different locations. This includes providing and coordinating 12 motorhomes for a 6 week STV shoot on the Isle of Gigha, a total of 11 motorhomes over 3 days at Leith Docks for The Rig, a variety of motorhomes and campervans over 2 weeks for Screw, multiple motorhome hire over a month for Karen Pirrie and coordinating a busy transport schedule with multiple drivers and motorhomes for VIGIL.
We continue to save our clients time and money by sourcing services from the most reliable, experienced suppliers at the best rates and will continue to do so this year too. We're extremely proud of our consistent 5-Star Google reviews which is testament to the work we are doing for our clients.
If you find yourself tied up coordinating a busy shoot and require any location service like; kit hire, greenrooms, security, marquee hire, traffic management, Quad and trailer hire, diesel refills, gullysucking or other waste water services, COVID attendants, or any other location service! Let us take the pressure off. You can call us any day, any time and we will make sure you get what you need when you need it!
