First Network delivers Star Wars European Press Conference

We had the most exciting job in the galaxy this week as we delivered the European Press Conference for Star Wars:The Force Awakens. The venue was London’s stunning Corinthia Hotel. Our crew were delighted to welcome original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamil, as well as Director J.J.Abrams and newcomer Daisy Ridley. Ridley’s performance in lead role, Rey, opened to critical acclaim on Wednesday.

First Network’s top of the range digital audio equipment included a Yamaha E8, QL1 digital desk and D&B audio sound system. The clear sound quality ensured that actors and journalists could communicate effortlessly. Our team loved working on such an exciting event, and were delighted to have the chance to meet the cast and crew.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in British cinemas on Wednesday and smashed the UK’s opening day record with takings of more than £10 million. We can’t wait to see it – have you got your tickets yet?
