Technically this was a complex build with very little lead and build time to deliver. Showforce has always shown the flexibility, aptitude and skill to deliver a variety of specialist and general crew for the big occasions. It was a pleasure to have them and some of their more experienced crews working for us on this event. Individually and as a company they should be proud of the part they played in successfully delivering this important commemorative event on an international scale.
Having worked with Showforce for a number of years across shows of various sizes and scope, from small scale corporate shows to large-scale festival formats, the delivery of the service provided by Showforce is always exceptional from the start of the booking process, down to delivery on the day. So, when it came time to switch things up at Glastonbury, Showforce was the obvious choice to join my team on the Pyramid stage for both the day and night shifts.
Thank you for the crew provided for the awards on Monday. They were a great team, all very cheerful and willing, worked hard and did a great job. We had a good crew chief too. Our set up and show went very well which is down to everyone in the team including all of the Showforce crew. Thank you too for your work in getting it all organised.
I just wanted to say thank you very much to the Showforce team involved in the MDL Beast Soundstorm Big Beast project. It was an absolute pleasure to work with the team, they were always smiling, happy and willing to work. Their knowledge of the lighting gear, as well as the fundamentals of putting a lighting rig together, was brilliant & they made the day to day set up so much easier for myself & the rest of the PRG LX team. With the assistance of Lee, Jimmy and the rest of the team we were able to stay on track & deliver the design as per the drawings, even after the delays with crew & equipment, on time. I would also like to thank the follow spot ops for their patience, they did long shifts, with long standbys & they all did an amazing job. Thank you once again and I look forward to working with Showforce on another project in the future.
At a time when we were very nervous about crew resource, Showforce not only managed our expectations in terms of what they could supply in advance but managed to over deliver on calls across the show. We had familiar faces from pre-COVID together with fresh faces that were trained and excited to work. A job incredibly well done, with minimal fuss and fantastic back-office structure.
The Showforce crew were a pleasure to work with, highly skilled, professional and experienced, which is exactly what you need when you are putting on a production of this scale. Their positivity and contribution onsite are invaluable in the delivery of what is undoubtedly one of the television highlights of the year.
The work by the Showforce crew, ably led by their two crew chiefs, John and Billie, was noticed and very much appreciated by everyone on the APA production team, the end client team and all the suppliers. The guys all did a really good job and worked very hard in a challenging environment with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude and great banter. Nothing was a problem and I look forward to working with all of them again on the next one!
They were all really good. Jimmy Norris is a great crew chief. Reduced the expected length of the load out by one hour, which made a big difference. Camaraderie was good as well. They really TRIED to help and were serious about it. Good lads and lasses. I will endeavour to use Showforce again. Many thanks to Becky Meers.
With over 50 productions currently running around the world, nine of which are UK touring and West End productions, I’m very grateful to the Showforce team for all their invaluable assistance in pre-production and technical support and their supply of reliable and hard-working crew.
