Since its inception, Pinewood MBS Lighting has remained committed to investment in LED and low-energy lighting. By sourcing products from leading manufacturers and creating innovative illumination solutions via its in-house product development team, PMBS has steadily grown to become one of the world’s largest energy efficient entertainment lighting resources.
Supported and governed by the BAFTA Albert Consortium, Albert is the UK’s leading environmental sustainability initiative for the visual-arts. The project aims to educate and provide industry colleagues with the necessary expertise and opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of the production process, and to create chances for audiences to effectively engage with the climate agenda.
Having recently delivered low energy and LED solutions to crews on major productions, including The Nutcracker And The Four Realms for DP Linus Sandgren FSF and gaffer David Sinfield, The Mummy with Ben Seresin BSC ASC and gaffers Pat Sweeney/Jeff Murrell, and Mary Poppins Returns with DP Dion Beebe ACS ASC and gaffer David Smith, PMBS has proven a world-leading supplier of energy-efficient lighting equipment and systems that deliver efficiencies without compromising the art of the cinematographer. The ability to support production and offer viable, energy efficient options makes PMBS a perfect fit for the Albert initiative.
Talking about the Albert certification, PMBS managing director, Darren Smith said “We’re delighted to be the first ever Albert-affiliated lighting company. We constantly engage with cinematographers, crews and colleagues from all areas of our industry to make sure we make available the very latest advances in lighting technology. We currently have almost four thousand low-energy products out on production and, with power savings of up to 92%, every single one of them is directly helping with Albert’s aim to create sustainable production”.
