Shields

'Kingdom of Heaven', 'Troy', 'Braveheart', 'The Da Vinci Code'.

Shields come in various shapes and sizes, depending on the job they have to do.

Shield

The shield has evolved over time, right up to modern times and today's riot shields.  In large battles, the shields are the only chance a production has, apart from flags, to get some colour into the scene. We have worked very successfully with many Art Departments and Set Decorators to create the look the Director wants.

The shields we manufacture are designed in such a way that they can be carried around all day without the actors or extras getting too disgruntled.
We do not make 'background' shields as we have found this to be a false economy. Our shields will look completely authentic and work well for dressing, stunts and full action.  We pride ourselves in making a product which will last throughout the production and not fall to pieces at the end of Week One.

Once you have a good shield, savings can be made within the bulk of an army as the shield will cover up everything except the pole-arm which the person is carrying and money does not have to be spent on swords and daggers.  This also saves on the time taken to dress the extras.
