EC Creative’s Charity Champion
Last week Ben, our Managing Director, returned home from Africa after having successfully completed a 500km charity bike ride on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Engineering for Entertainment
Here at EC we’re best known for our amazing TV scenery but that’s not all we do - first and foremost we’re a design and engineering business. For the past 25 years clients have been coming to us with their problems (although not in a Dear Deidre way I hasten to add) and we’ve been creating bespoke, engineering solutions to help solve them.
Charity Cycle Challenge
In precisely 64 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes (not that he’s counting), Ben (our MD) will be taking on the biggest physical challenge of his life. In October Ben will be cycling 500 kilometres (that’s 310 miles) across Africa in just 6-days to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Winner Takes All
Nope, we’re not announcing the return of Jimmy Tarbuck and a well known 80s game show. We are, however, announcing that (…drum roll please…) we are the newly crowned winners of the Small Business of the Year award at the 2016 Oldham Business Awards!
Shades of Light & Dark – the DigiCo SD7 Canopy
A custom made shade for Coldplay (well, for their uber swish sound desk anyway) When it comes to audio production, the DigiCo SD7 is the Ferrari of the live sound world. A console that “offers mind-blowing I/O capabilities and sets new standards in high-density digital processing” (apparently), it is the mixing desk du jour of global rock-stars Coldplay and their sound company Wigwam.
Shiver Me Timbers – A Mini-Makeover for the Swashbuckle Set
The CBeebies game show Swashbuckle is popular viewing in the Crowther household – naughty pirates, green gunge, a beautiful heroine, daring feats of ability and audience participation – what’s not to love?
