TURNING WATERLOO STATION INTO A FILM STUDIO

HOW DO YOU TURN WATERLOO STATION INTO A FILM SET DURING RUSH HOUR?

Shooting a blockbuster movie on location comes with a unique set of problems. Especially when the location in question is one of the busiest places in London. That was the challenge facing the Pinewood Studios production team during the making of The Bourne Ultimatum staring Matt Damon.

Within Waterloo Station’s busy platforms and concourse areas the production team needed to set up secure temporary work areas for make up artists, wardrobe, rehearsal areas and green room space for the many extras involved in the filming. The production team at Pinewood Studios turned to the Portable Partition Company to help provide the right solutions using our Room Divider products.

But this isn’t the only claim to fame for our screens… They have also been used in the making of National Treasure 2 staring Nicholas Cage and The Golden Compass with Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.

However until now our screens have always played a supporting role. But that is all set to change with Sony’s new production of The Girl in A Spider’s Web, where our sleek 360 Polycarbonate product will make its on screen debut.

The previous productions the spaces created needed to be quick and easy to set up and the Room Divider products provided by the Portable Partition Company were the perfect solution.

The products had to be easily manoeuvrable to meet a rapidly changing spatial requirement. And with space being at such a premium, whenever not in use, our products needed to take up as little space as possible when being stored. As well as providing security and privacy they had to create a pleasant, if temporary, working environment for both the cast and crew.

All our products are available for either purchase or hire and bespoke solutions are available. Our Room Divider products offer a variety of colour and finish options as well as other benefits such as sound absorption.
