“Paramount Comedy” This advert for the new comedy channel required the opening of Tower Bridge. Marine Film Services Ltd marine coordinated the sequence and supplied the tug and barge, Thames sailing barge, camera boat and safety boat as well as the safety team.
The Ecocat is a superb stable and maneuverable camera platform and ideal for working in London.
A Thames sailing barge was used to lift the bridge before the tug and barge went through. Careful timing was required.
