Film.

Jack Elliott has worked on many films situated in Australia, Asia and the Pacific. As the head of the greens team he is committed to suppling quality greens to suit whatever the job requires. From a desert landscape in a studio to a rainforest in a carpark, we can do it.

"Increasingly challenging projects both excite and motivate us..."

This work can involve sourcing specific plant materials, both real and artificial, locally and offshore. We have experience in importing both live and artificial plant material for a variety of uses. Earths, gravels, rock and natural timber are also sourced for the specific requirements of individual sets and locations. We have experience and techniques for relocating large live trees and constructing large trees with artificial foliage for interior and exterior sets.

Equipped and trained crews can be assembled to undertake greens projects anywhere at anytime.
