Turn Up Charlie Netflix Special
Assembling the Ideas
Netflix is a powerhouse streaming service that produces original movies and series’ (Netflix Specials) and are very keen to push the boundaries. So, when we were asked to create a Festival Set Production for the Netflix Special “Turn Up Charlie” featuring Idris Elba, we were very excited!
On top of producing a bespoke Festival TV Set Production to feature in the series, they also wanted a Netflix Wrap Up Party to celebrate the finale of the Series and filming coming to an end.
To ensure the bespoke Festival set was perfect for the series, we worked very closely with the directors, Tristram Shapeero, Matt Lipsey when on set and the production crew to create one of the largest scenes in the series at the wonderful Brocket Hall.
Once we had gone over how the scenes needed to pan out, we were then able to get to work on creating a bespoke TV Set Production, running order and custom content for the Netflix Series itself.

Adding our Expertise
Once we knew what the outcome needed to be for the Turn Up Charlie series scene, we got to work on creating the Festival Stage for the Netflix Production and designing and producing the event.
We created a Festival stage that sat in the middle of the grounds so that it was easy to film the right angles for the scene.
We produced footage and content for the large screens either side of the stage which would countdown from 60 seconds and would announce Piper Perabo’s‘ Character and the drop of her song.
The drop was accompanied by gigantic flames, sparkle canons and a laser show, along with projection mapping. The countdown was also projected on the Brocket hall itself and was synced with the large screens.
Our expertise in Staging, Lighting and AV was absolutely crucial to get this right for the Netflix Production.
On top of this we also produced and managed a bespoke Netflix Wrap Up Party for the Cast and Crew of the Netflix Special.
What Did We Provide?
- A high-end bespoke Festival Stage to fit the “Turn Up Charlie” Netflix Series
- A realistic scene using our Staging, Lighting and AV services for the Netflix production team to make the most of
- Full event management and Set Build for Netflix
- A fun and exciting Turn Up Charlie Wrap Up Party to celebrate the finale of the series!
Admiring the results
The results of the TV Set Production and Turn Up Charlie Wrap Up Party were incredible and due to the hard work of all involved Turn up Charlie was a complete success!
We had just three days in total to create the Festival Stage and Production for the Turn Up Charlie scene, including set-up, filming, Wrap Up Party and putting the venue space we hired back to its original stage (taking down all of our staging and equipment).
Netflix used the scene for one of the shows largest events and over on IMDB the show received a 7.2 rating!
Here’s What They Had To Say About The Event:
“Firstly, may I say a HUGE Thank you!!! To you and your team for such an amazing job you did for our TV series. We were delighted with the results and it’s going to look so good when the final show is broadcast.
From the first phone call to the final set-up on the filming day, the process could not have been easier. I appreciate that planning and delivering a live show is a very different process from working for a film shoot. You were never phased by our requests or last-minute changes – I can’t tell you how reassuring your positive approach to the brief and creative input made this a stress free mission.
I very much hope to work with you guys again and will not hesitate to recommend you to my colleagues in the industry.”
