For almost 15 years ErgoMounts have supplied high quality computer mounting solutions for a wide range of industries and applications. Some of the most exciting projects we have been lucky enough to work on have been for stage, television and film. We were originally approached about 5 years ago by a number of different production companies due to our location central to many London studios. Since then our reputation has led to our products being used by the likes of Industrial Light and Magic, Warner Brothers and Universal Pictures to name just a few.
Today see’s the release of one of the latest productions we have worked on: The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella. It's Universal’s attempt to kick start a new franchise of movies taking place in a shared “Dark Universe” based around the famous Universal Monster Movies of the 1930’s. Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess, whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension.
In the Spring of 2016 a production company in the early stages of shooting needed a range of different monitor mounts to help dress a laboratory set they were in the process of building in Oxford. We were contacted on a Friday and rehearsals were due to take place on the following Sunday with shooting scheduled for the day after. This realistically only gave us a few short hours to source the right solution. It was quickly decided that a member of the art department would come and visit our showroom and decide which solutions would work best. After seeing our mounts in the flesh and a few hours of discussion they were able to leave our warehouse with a van load of mounting arms.
The crew were then so impressed with the solutions purchased they returned several times over the course of the next few weeks to pick up additional wall mounts and floor stands to be used on other sets and production offices.
The Mummy has been released in cinemas today (9th June 2017) and was produced by Universal Pictures.
