Gallowglass to provide operational support for dock10 at MediaCityUK
Media services provider dock10 has formalised the appointment of technical support firm Gallowglass to fulfil the vast majority of its labour requirements at The Studios – the studio complex at the heart of MediaCityUK.
Operated by dock10, The Studios contains seven HDTV studios, two audio studios, digital post production and cloud media management services.
Gallowglass will provide a workforce of technical support staff, including carpenters, scenic artists, gaffers and stage-hands, to work at The Studios – as well as at production base The Pie Factory, home to three large sound stages, and location for a wide range of productions, from feature films to sofa commercials.
Andy Walters, head of studios at dock10, comments: “Gallowglass have been working regularly on programmes such as Blue Peter, Football Focus and Match of the Day, and periodically on Question of Sport, Dragon’s Den and The Sarah Millican Programme. They’ve been doing a fantastic job for us; we’re delighted with the range of services and level of efficiency they are able to provide, and we have come to regard the company as long-term in-house resource.”
