In the thrilling world of stunt rigging, the success of a film shoot depends on various factors and rigging styles. In our industry, there are four primary rigging styles that play a crucial role in achieving the desired outcomes:
- Rigging for Picture: This style involves dressing the rigging equipment as if it were a prop, ensuring it remains camera-friendly and inconspicuous during filming.
- Combined Rigging: Here, it incorporates both the dressed and camera-friendly equipment with attached hidden rigging equipment to the actor's body for seamless stunts.
- Rigging for Illusion: In this style, the rigging equipment is entirely hidden from the camera's view, creating a realistic and immersive scene.
- Combining Camera Rigging and Action: This technique offers flexibility in rigging equipment to accommodate the actor's movements while prioritising safety.
Safety is paramount in the stunt world, and we fully understand the importance of reliable and durable rigging equipment. With over two decades of experience in the industry, we are committed to providing high-quality and trustworthy equipment to ensure your safety and the success of your stunts.

When shooting a scene involving stunts, it's essential to be familiar with the rigging equipment and systems. For instance:
- Safety wires: These serve as secondary precautions to secure rigging equipment to trusses or stands, especially when there is a possibility of bolts loosening during use or due to vibrations.
- Suspension brackets: These versatile brackets enable lifting or suspending equipment in the air, providing unique perspectives during the shoot.
