Floating Pontoons as Camera and Equipment Platforms
We supply pontoons for any number of film set needs. For example we supplied pontoons as a camera platform big enough to take actors, full crew and associated equipment on the River Thames (credit: Miss Marple). On the same production we created a large barge to transport actors, crew and props across the Thames between two locations.
Floating Pontoons for Films Sets
CRC own over a thousand square meters of the Versadock floating pontoon system. This modular system can be configured into virtually any shape needed and has excellent buoyancy – more typically used to transport plant and machinery to waterside locations. Versadock may be cloaked in green screen or where it is actually built into the set, covered in grass, decking or props as required by the set designers and art departments.
Pontoons may also be used to create moorings and jetties in locations such as rivers and lakes where filming needs to take place but the necessary facilities don’t exist. The system is safe for use in fast flowing rivers and at coastal locations. Handrails, mooring cleats and fenders are installed as required. Versadock is light to transport and both quick and easy to install; the system is likely to be the lowest cost as well as the best method of making a dry and safe surface on any body of water.
