Lighting Masts

Love your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh

Love your Garden Alan Titchmarsh

Spun Gold TV required a 12 metre mast to enable them to get a Birdseye view to capture every stage of their garden builds. This was often difficult to film from ground level and for viewers to really appreciate the changes evolving in the garden, a high shot was essential. Previous series of the show saw them approaching this problem with scissor lifts and self propelled booms but not many ordinary gardens can accommodate these relatively large pieces of machinery.

Producers of the television show ‘Love Your Garden’, presented by Alan Titchmarsh, were delighted to discover Total Mast Solutions and utilise our products in order to obtain the most stunning aerial and panoramic shots of outdoor spaces.

Head of Production at Spun Gold, Jim Boyers, used a Ø101mm, 10 section mast capable of extending to 12m – as well as a Standard Hiperpod – to film and photograph garden projects throughout the country. See some snapshots and read the glowing review here… Bird’s Eye View with TMS.

Our garden builds are amazing, but often difficult to film from a standard camera. It’s all very well filming at ground level but for our viewers to really appreciate the changes evolving in the garden, a high shot is essential. Our prayers were answered when we discovered Total Mast Solutions, a company which manufactures and supplies up to 450 different types of masts for uses ranging from bird watching to military applications. This has turned out to be an invaluable piece of equipment, entirely perfect for our needs. The sky really is the limit with Total Mast Solutions. If you need to go up in the world, go no further than TMS.
