Machine Shop Special Effects

We specialise in the design, fabrication and operation of practical in-camera special effects, model-making, electro-mechanical rigs and animatronics, as well as a wide range of live atmospheric and pyrotechnic floor-effects for all forms of film, TV and commercial production. Our Special Projects division gets out of bed for the weird, the unusual, and the hardcore tech projects; kinetic sculptures, automated systems, permanent installations and product development, and can handle all stages from design to manufacture through to installation and maintenance. At our workshop in Park Royal, NW10 we are able to offer an array of services from special effects equipment hires, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC fabrication, modelling, prototyping, and software development. In October 2020 we began an exciting new chapter in our nearly 30-year history and became employee-owned.
