Cine Electric Is Leading Light In 2005
01 Dec 2005 :

2005 has been a fantastic year for Ireland’s leading lighting supplier for the film and television industry, Cine Electric, with major feature films (Lassie, Johnny Was, Breakfast On Pluto) and TV productions (The Clinic, The Last Furlong, IFTA Awards) all availing of Cine’s extensive support, supplies and expertise.

Since its establishment in 1976 Cine Electric has become a key element in building the success and reputation of the Irish film and television industry, supplying a range of facilities for home grown and visiting production companies. Cine Electric’s prestigious feature film list of credits includes ‘Braveheart’, ‘In The Name of The Father’, ‘Veronica Guerin’ and ‘Reign of Fire’ and throughout the years the company has consistently supported smaller productions helping indie hits like ‘Intermission’, ‘The Commitments’ and ‘The Crying Game’ find their feet.

In 2005 the lighting company has provided facilities for a number of high profile productions based in Ireland. Feature film work included the big budget shoot for Charles Sturridge’s ‘Lassie’ with Cine supplying lighting, lighting grip and generator for the film which shot in Ireland during April 2005. The same quota was supplied for the Northern Ireland shoot of low budget crime drama ‘Johnny Was’ starring Vinny Jones and Samantha Mumba and the company is eager to see the fruits of their labour when Neil Jordan’s ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ is released next month.

Television work has continued to permeate through Cine Electric with lighting supplied for RTE’s new drama series ‘The Last Furlong’ and the third series of ‘The Clinic’, studio lighting and generator were supplied for the latter. The company literally lit up the industry at the recent Irish Film and Television Awards 2005 with a spectacular set up and lighting display and ,in addition, the Cine crew provided lighting for the Granada TV mini series Charles and Camilla story ‘Whatever Love Means’ and are busily prepping for the forthcoming series of ‘You’re a Star’ having successfully supplied a twin set generator, trussing, moving lights and dimmers for the popular entertainment music show’s Summer spin off ‘Celebrity You’re A Star’. Cine is also the most trusted lighting company when it comes to commercial work with regular customers Toytown Films, Blinders, Taboo, Russell Avis, Fish Films and Piranha Bar all working with Cine on their projects this year.

In addition to their packed TV and film slate, 2005 has seen Cine Electric branch further into the filed of installation and event lighting with projects for EBS (dimming and control lighting for the new training studio), The Point Depot (new dimming installation) and The Round Room (event installation) completed in recent months. Other work includes the Garda Training College, Carr Communications new HQ, OB and power to all the Rugby and Soccer broadcasts (incl. studio lighting) and the Milk Cup flood lighting for the BBC in Coleraine.

Cine’s team has just begun installation of a full lighting package for the Dublin Business School’s new training studio and is currently working on the European AIDS Conference in Dublin.

Paddy O’Toole, head of Cine Electric commented to IFTN on the past year: “2005 has been a relatively tough year for the Irish industry but we have seen it through and enjoyed every minute of it. Our clients are wholly satisfied with our work and the quality, commitment and expertise the team at Cine Electric bring to a production shows where it counts, on screen. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our hardworking staff and our clients for a wonderful year and wish them the very best for 2006.”
