What we do
We use plant and natural materials to create accurate and life-like scenery, often adjusting the environment to be period-appropriate. When the War of the Worlds team requested fire-damaged trees for their set, we prepared them with ease, ensuring they arrived on time and within budget.
With over 20 years of experience working with large woodlands as well as the National Trust and the Forestry Commission, we know how to work with trees in a way that is both sustainable and also ensures on-screen historical and aesthetic accuracy. From constructing bespoke trees for film and TV projects, for example if you need to cover a non-period set feature to clearing trees and vegetation for film locations, we’ll work with you to meet your brief in the most natural and authentic way.
We have also recently invested in a huge amount of potted trees and shrubs, plus a new fully enclosed trailer, making it even easier to deliver and install greenery on set.
When you’re looking for props, natural scenery and set dressing, we can offer everything from busses, burnt out cars and lampposts to agricultural props such as fencing, gateways, hay bales, harvested crops, seed, turf and more. We also source period-specific items, like fishing rods, farming tools and gardening implements.
To make hunting look accurate on-screen, it’s all about the details and we have the knowledge and experience to help you get these important technicalities right. Our background in rearing deer, as well as our expertise in game and countryside pursuits has helped us assist with major television dramas such as Peaky Blinders. All our animal props are ethically sourced and provided with the utmost care and professional guidance.
