North Wales event security specialists Corvus were more excited than most to see Cursed launch on Netflix in July – because the team provided set security and traffic when the project was filmed in North Wales.

From Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler, Cursed is a reimagining of the Arthurian legend told from the perspective of Nimue (played by Katherine Langford).

The company were also involved in Light It Red earlier this month as Pontio supported a nationwide campaign to save the live events and entertainment sector, which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Managing Director Andy Butterfield explains:

“We are a leading provider of event security across North Wales, as well as workplace security and fevercam technology, however the live events sector and security industries have been hit hard by COVID 19 this year, with many events being cancelled.
“Our diverse range of security services and facilities management has enabled us to keep trading where others have struggled, but it’s been a tough year and many within the events industry don’t feel we have received the support from central Government that other industries have enjoyed, with artists prevented from earning an income for much of the year and live entertainment indoors being all but closed until August, so our joy at this release is a little bittersweet.

“It’s always great to see a project we played a part in creating come to fruition and ‘Cursed’ was definitely a proud moment for us.  It was also great to see outdoor events resume in July, and indoor events earlier this month, finally allowing some much-needed relief for filming and event companies.  COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of security, now we aren’t just keeping people safe and managing logistics like traffic management  – our role has expanded.  When helping to manage events, we are now responsible for preventing the spread of COVID-19 at venues, something we take very seriously and Corvus have invested in the technology to support this vital work.

“I’m positive that our industry will recover – and North Wales is definitely well placed to support the recovery.  North Wales has so much to offer to film companies, we have the scenery, enough space to socially distance and a massive talent pool of friendly performers who can sing, dance and act – as well as some of the most reputable event security professionals in the business.  We look forward to playing our part in helping the filming and events industry recover, to help people get back to enjoying events again and to highlighting the opportunities in the North Wales region.”
