Stage Crew assist Lusitania documentary 

Our riggers have been on board HMS Caroline assisting with one of the latest film projects in Belfast's Titanic Quarter.

360 Production have been filming a dramatic reconstruction of the sinking of ocean liner RMS Lusitania. Torpedoed by a German U-boat, Lusitania  was  briefly the world's largest passenger ship. She was sunk on Friday 7th May 1915 with the loss of 1198 passengers. The drama / documentary follows the lives of the crew on Lusitania.

HMS Caroline is the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland 1916. The Heritage Lottery Fund has just awarded a large sum to restore and preserve it as another tourist attraction in the Titanic Quarter.

Stage Crew riggers were hired to assist the TV / film crews in moving around the ship safely, and to install fall arrest systems on the internal ladders and stairwells.
