  • Rob Portus
    Rob Portus Mr Fixit

    Rob is Mr. Fixit. Like a modern day ‘Macgyver’ Rob is usually found with some piece of kit in pieces and manages to put them back where he found them.
    Also found on set as a tech and loves working in mud.

  • Dave Hideg
    Dave Hideg In House Tech

    When he has the allen key between his teeth no one can stop him. More organised than a Filofax, ready to pounce on a messy crane loom at any moment.

  • Sean Rogers
    Sean Rogers In House Tech

    Old hat at all this now, everyone likes Sean. Except for the fact he always seems to get the nice foreign location jobs … we don’t like him for that.

  • Josh Milne
    Josh Milne In House Tech

    AKA Chris Griffin. If you need a cable tie Josh is your man … rumoured to have more cables ties than RS Components!

    Bringing a certain je n’ais se quoi to a Grip Department … Impeccably dressed, well manicured and slightly scented.

  • Chris Dawson
    Chris Dawson In House Tech

    From Libra Heads to Maxima Heads, Chris is learning them all. Chris has almost completed his 2 year in house training programme so it wont be long until he is let free.

  • Ben Martin
    Ben Martin In House Tech

    After 20 years with Arri Rental Ben felt it was time for a change … we are sure joining us had nothing to do with the fact he can walk to work in less than 5 minutes ! Learning the Libra ropes, Ben will be appearing again on set soon.

  • Matt McCarthy
    Matt McCarthy In House Tech

    Joining us from CineMoves Matt brings a wealth of stabilisation and remote head knowledge. Matt also lives on a boat so he fits in very well with most of the In House Tech team.

    Commonly know as the little brown noise machine ! She barks to say hello, she barks for attention, she barks for more attention and she barks when you stop giving her attention … oh does she bark!

  • Darren Bailey
    Darren Bailey Libra Tech

    Darren was the Libra tech in South Africa for many years, and then China for a few years too.
    Has now come home to play with heads and brings a vast knowledge with it.
    He still loves a job away as he misses the Airmiles.

  • Joe Buxton
    Joe Buxton Joe Libra

    ‘Joe Libra’ is the world renown Libra tech.
    The only person I know to calm some of the worlds liveliest DoP’s.
    The scale of his knowledge and ability is only dwarfed by the scale of his hairpiece collection.

  • Mario Spanna
    Mario Spanna Mazza

    Mazza started in the video dept back in the 90’s but quickly realised the fun he was missing out on so became a Libra tech.
    He is still having oodles of fun with heads and has a few stories from the years to entertain you.

  • Dave Tulett
    Dave Tulett AKA double 0 Dave

    Double ‘0’ Dave, Dangerous Dave, Angry Dave. These all sum him up. James Bond couldn’t break him and no body makes him angry and lives to tell.

  • Gareth Viner
    Gareth Viner Libra Tech

    Gareth bounces between Cape Town and London as a Libra tech.
    He seems to time it so he does commercial season in SA through the UK winter and then comes to the UK for our summer of features.
    Not a bad life.

  • Neil Tomlin
    Neil Tomlin AKA Munkeh

    …enough said, you know him already!

  • Michele Puricelli
    Michele Puricelli Libra Tech

    Comes to us from working with plenty of other heads and in his Italian passionate way has chosen Libra for the style, sophistication and, I think, the shiny finish.

  • Tim Dean
    Tim Dean Timmy Tight Pants

    More commonly known as ‘Timmy Tight Pants’ due to an unfortunate Speedos incident. Tim learned his trade after years living in Thailand so don’t insult him in Thai, but do take him with you to a restaurant, he knows his real Thai food.

  • Alex Pugh
    Alex Pugh Libra Tech

    After years of working with cranes and other heads. I think he just prefers the curves of the Libra. And the fact he gets to sit down and not lift the crane weights.

  • Ryan Turner
    Ryan Turner Libra Tech

    Ryan also comes to us from a world of cranes and other heads. But for years he craved working with Libra. Now an established Libra tech he can be found on set with a set of Allen keys, his ‘blue steel’ chiseled look and interesting clothing choices.

  • Mihai Negoita
    Mihai Negoita Libra Tech

    Mihai joins us from Rocksolid Remotes, the Libra Agent in South African. Mihai popped over to help out last year when things where really busy, he loved it so much that he rented a boat to live on and quickly became part of the team!

  • Arran Shearing
    Arran Shearing Libra Tech

    In a chance meeting at Simpco Camera Support, the Canadian Libra Head Agent, a young Arran Shearing said hello. Cut to 6 months later and he’s swapped the snow covered Vancouver mountains for rolling sand dunes in in the Jordanian dessert on a certain space themed ​film, what a guy!
