Film and TV Transport for Sky One’s Intergalactic
Intergalactic is a sci-fi drama programme, produced for Sky One and scheduled for broadcast in 2021. Filming took place at Manchester’s Space Studios and Spain’s Mini Hollywood, which meant a time-sensitive travel solution was essential.
Taking place in the 23rd century, the show follows Ash—a young flight cadet wrongly imprisoned in an interstellar empire. She goes on the run with a motley gang of women following a prison break.
Stagefreight undertook a double drive down and back to ensure the show remained on schedule. They transported the show’s wardrobe and props to Spain, and also supported the film team while on location overseas.
With travel between the UK & Spain and a tight production schedule, the transport job posed significant challenges. We needed to undertake a double drive, which meant bringing on more staff than usual. We moved between the locations as quickly as possible since time was extremely tight.
With over thirty years of film transport experience, we were able to stick closely to the required schedule. This ensured that filming could begin on time.
