Blocked by a tricky location? Rope Access in Film and TV can make that impossible shot possible by giving your crew access to hard to reach places! Have you ever been in a production meeting and said to yourselves, “how are we suppose to rig that up in that spot?” Or, “there is no way we can get those shots because of the location.” Or, “there is no way scaffolding can fit there. And, even if we tried, it’s too expensive.” In those very niche and special situations, Rope Access can be your alternative option.
Rope Access is an innovative access solution that enables a technician to use 2 ropes and a harness system to position themselves in nearly any work environment. In conjunction with a unique gear system, an access technician can maneuver themselves with complete 360 degree mobility in difficult locations, all while completing a myriad of work tasks. Typically Rope Access is used in industrial settings as it not only allows a technician ultimate time efficiency, with easy installation and de-installation, but also allows for great cost savings as it eliminates the need for scaffold or other heavy access equipment.
Rope Access gets you that money shot without breaking budget!
