Ask Rhod Gilbert


With 10 days to go before filming began production designer Simon Rogers contacted us to prefabricate a complex set for a high profile BBC panel show. The show would be hosted by award-winning comedian Rhod Gilbert.

Simon’s set design was complex; the entire stage formed an enormous question mark. This meant that virtually everything on the set was curved; from the presentation desks to the rear projected backdrop and entrance stairway. All this geometry had to be calculated before construction could start, the question mark alone had more than 14 different radii points to be worked out!
