We were really excited to film at Arc Energy Resources Ltd, a specialist welding engineering company, because we knew we’d get incredibly strong visuals from all the sparking, flashy lights. We also got an incredibly strong talking to from the company’s lovely Health & Safety man who ensured we were all kitted out with the proper equipment, knew how to follow Arc’s Health and Safety policy and made sure we all understood what arc eye was – and how to avoid it!
Despite feeling slightly unnerved by the heightened risk of the scary sounding photokeratitis (aka arc eye) we had a brilliant day getting some super stylish shots of the action and processes that take place under Arc’s roof.
Based in Gloucester, Arc Energy specialises in the supply of weld overlay clad products, fabrications and related services and serves the oil and gas, petrochemical, water and waste treatment and defence industries. The company’s vast premises also allowed us to use our mini-jib to capture moves through the work areas and heavy-duty machinery but we had the most fun spending time with the fantastic people that work at the family-owned and run company.
