What our clients say
A very belated but heartfelt thanks to you and the boys for a wonderful job on The Brit Awards – particular thanks to Chris and Paul who were with me on site.
Kylie’s set looked and worked beautifully – an amazing feat when one remembers the ridiculously short time you all had to design and engineer the system. Well done to you all and a big thank you.
Bill Laslett, Production Designer, The Brit Awards
Throughout an intensive build period, EC’s hard work, skill and commitment meant that this ambitious and detailed set was delivered to exceed expectations. The intricacies of the initial design were not diluted in any way and I couldn’t have been happier with the final outcome.
Jane Cecchi, Production Designer, The Furchester Hotel
This was a tricky install with a tight budget but EC Creative delivered exactly what was required for the new look Newsround set, many thanks to all involved.
Emma Dibb, Production Designer, Newsround
The Furchester Hotel was a 360 degree set, meaning you could put a camera almost anywhere to get a shot. It was very cinematic with beautiful depth and angles. Anyone who visited was instantly taken with the grandeur and detail of it.
Dionne Nosek, Series Producer, The Furchester Hotel
I’ve worked with EC Creative for over twenty years on numerous high-profile TV shows including The Weakest Link, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Tipping Point and of course Strictly Come Dancing.
The main thing that sets EC apart is the enormous breadth of knowledge and experience that the team has built up over so many years in the business. This includes the most effective construction methods, awareness of the properties of hundreds of different materials and insights into the latest technologies. These things, combined with a staff of highly skilled people, means their sets have an excellent standard of build and finish – plus they’re experts at making the budget stretch as far as possible too.
Patrick Doherty, Television Designer, Strictly Come Dancing
The changes were relatively small but the finished design and impact was dramatic, plus the whole job went smoothly from start to finish. Ben was always available whenever I needed a change or we found a unique issue that needed solving.
I always try and use EC in my work where appropriate and indeed they have provided excellent support and equipment in many of my jobs. I always enjoy working with the team, they instantly respond to any changes I make or that the job dictates and they come up with creative solutions so that I can get the job done – exactly what I’m looking for from a scenery company and LED supplier.
Jim Ewart, Lighting Designer, BBC Sport
Thank you so much to you and the rest of the team at EC Creative for building such a great set for the final of ‘Restoration’ from the Tower of London. Everyone has remarked on how fantastic the set looked. I know how much of a problem you had in getting it onto the wharf because of weight and lorry size restrictions, but you coped under difficult circumstances.
Once again, many thanks to all concerned and I hope we work together again in the near future.
Hazel Taylor, Production Manager
I just wanted to thank you and your guys for having done such a great job for us on the ‘Twister’ set. I’ve looked through all the tapes and I’m very happy with it.
I know what a tough time you had getting things done in the time and how hard you and all your guys worked to get us there.
I hope we get the chance to collaborate again in the future, good luck to you all in the meantime and thanks once again.
Dougie Napier, Programme Director, Twister
Many thanks for your continued hard work on the refurbishment of ‘Weakest Link’. The set looks fantastic and there has been a lot of praise for the new dynamic look to the new series.
I couldn’t achieve this without you and your teams’ hard work. Please relay my thanks to Jack, John and the boys – as always it’s been a pleasure.
Patrick Doherty, Television Designer, The Weakest Link
Thank you for all your help in sorting out the staging for the Real Christmas event and your hard work making the event a great success.
I know there were a lot of changes but as always you and your guys pulled it together and the client is already talking about next years’ event.
Ronnie, Wigwam Acoustics
The months of hard work, skill and dedication that you and your team provided us with bore fruit in the most amazing set I have ever worked with. It is quite simply, a triumph of design and engineering.
The fact that the rehearsal and the studio recording went as smoothly as they did is a testament to the professionalism of the crew.
I am grateful that you were able to help us put together such a successful pilot. Please pass my thanks and gratitude on to Paul and the rest of the team – they were brilliant.
I hope we work together again soon.
Andy Rowe, Series Producer, Possession
Just to say a big thank you for all your hard work over the last few months – when we have been up against it with money and time you have always managed to achieve the impossible – colossal sets in minimal time!
Glastonbury Calling was a big success and the set looked fantastic (both in the studio and when crammed into a tent).
We really appreciate the late nights and weekend work you undertook in order to complete this mammoth task. We look forward to working with you again.
A short note to say a very big thank you for all your hard work and support on Peter Kay’s ‘Britain’s Got the Pop Factor’. We hope you’ve had some fun and shared some memorable moments along the way and that the end result is something of which we can all be proud.
Thank you, once again.
Lucy Ansbro, Producer, Phil McIntyre Entertainment
