APOSTLE

Construction is well under way for Gareth Evans's exciting new film 'APOSTLE'. The Team have been battling the elements to make good progress on this stunning location build in South Wales.

SHOW DOGS

We're super proud to have been involved in this American comedy. Set Construction carried out in Pinewood Studios Cardiff and at various locations across South Wales. The team delivered impressive sets & props in a tight timescale before filming continued in Las Vegas.

Show Dogs stars a charming and lovable cast of talking canine characters, including our hero Max (voiced by Ludacris), a rugged lone-wolf Rottweiler NYPD police dog. Max and his human FBI partner (Will Arnett) are investigating the kidnapping of a baby panda by an underground network of illegal animal traders when they get a tip that the crime ring is planning to sell the panda at the prestigious Canini Invitational Dog Show. The uber-macho Max must undergo a makeover with the help of a seasoned trainer (Natasha Lyonne) - mud baths, ballet lessons, a Brazilian waxing - to go undercover in order to thwart the plot. In the hands of his new human handler Frank, Max gets in touch with his inner show dog, and also learns that trusting the help of others can sometimes be more rewarding than working alone.

CROSSING THE BORDER

Set Construction was undertaken at Pinewood Studios (Cardiff) and numerous locations across South Wales for this Channel 4 drama.

Crossing The Border is a brilliant new 4-part drama by Peter Kosminsky ("Wolf Hall"; "The Promise"; "Britz"; "The Government Inspector') for Channel 4.

This is a drama about the Islamic State - and the British men and women who travel to Syria to join it. It isn't about radicalisation. It starts on the Turkish border. It's about life in the Caliphate - why some Brits might choose to go there, what happens to them while they're there and why some of them might decide to leave and try to get home.

THE COLLECTION

We are excited to be currently Managing the Construction of these incredible Sets. This fantastic Production is based on two brothers forming a Fashion house in Paris in the 1940's.

Scandal, betrayal, feuds and romance are plentiful in this Amazon-original drama from creator Oliver Goldstick. Set in Paris, France, after World War II, the series follows two brothers who are in charge of an illustrious fashion house. As attempts are made to emerge from the dark days of the Nazi occupation, the brothers' rivalry and dark, twisted secrets threaten to undermine their rising success. Right after surviving one war, another battle looms that pits proteges against mentors and family against family.

HERETIKS

It was a pleasure to work on this Horror film, even more so, because of the beautiful surroundings of Margam Country Park.

Set during the 17th Century, a young woman is saved from execution and led to a priory to repent her sins, but discovers a greater evil lies within.

THE RACK PACK

We had a lot of fun working on this feature length Drama. The Story tells of the rivalry between Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins and Steve 'The Nugget' Davis in the late 70's and 80's. To see images of the Sets, click on the image on the left.

Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins - mercurial, explosive, a natural showman. Steve 'The Nugget' Davis - clinical, ruthless, 'boring'. This comedy drama transports you back to the glory days of snooker and charts the rivalry of its two giants which spanned a decade, dividing the critics and delighting the fans.

Higgins, the bad boy of the sport, lives on the edge and plays to the crowd - desperate for approval and love. Davis has an aura of invincibility, methodically and clinically playing his way to the top, helped by legendary manager Barry Hearn. Higgins' chaotic life away from the table saw him battling not just his sporting rivals, but his inner demons and loving wife.

This comedy drama, exclusive to BBC iPlayer, is an affectionate look at a transformational period in the history of British snooker. Staring Luke Treadaway, Will Merrick, Kevin Bishop and Nichola Burley.
