Prolectric brings silent, environmentally friendly lighting to the TV and film industry.
Prolectric was delighted to work with Shoot Support and Fable Pictures as part of their big-budget Anne Boleyn TV drama for Channel 5. Our ProLight solar lighting towers were deployed on shoots during the production - bringing silent, emission free lighting to the production and crew areas on set.
Produced by Fable Pictures, a leading film & TV production company, the three-part drama was filmed at the historic Bolton Castle in Wensleydale, Yorkshire.
Bright set lighting with ZERO noise or carbon emissions:
Fable Pictures previously hired conventional diesel lighting towers to provide lighting on location. However noise, refuelling and emissions had always been an issue on previous productions.
The noise issue is accentuated when filming in rural locations as noise from the lighting towers routinely interferes with filming.
Shoot Support introduced Prolectric’s award-winning ProLight solar lighting tower as an excellent alternative. It is silent, completely fuel free and proven to work throughout the winter months just on stored solar power. ProLight delivers powerful light without noise or carbon emissions and offers a robust alternative to temporary diesel lighting for outdoor events, TV and film industry.
Reduced production costs & Tangible environmental savings:
The lights were deployed for 6 weeks and made significant savings for Fable Pictures. In comparison to a traditional VT1 diesel tower light, the ProLight saved an impressive 9,642 Kg of CO2 emissions and £2,339 in diesel costs.
David Gales, Unit Manager at Fable Pictures said:
“The solar tower lights have been fantastic, the fact we have not needed to refuel them for 6 weeks and that they are also silent and emission free has been a real bonus. Great technology that we will look to use again on future productions.”
Bringing sustainable, innovative technology to the industry:
Headed by Managing Director, James Brooks Alexander, who himself has over 25 years experience working in the Film and TV industry - Shoot Support not only provides innovative and sustainable equipment for the industry, but is also committed to recycle the materials that are used for the productions. This focus on sustainability makes Shoot Support and the Prolectric range of sustainable lighting and power solutions, the perfect partner in the Film and TV sector.
