Two Williams are Better than One

Two Williams are better than one

The dynamic duo, the Welsh Dragons, RAID-0, whatever you want to call them, the Williams brothers are a force to be reckoned with, and Mission Cymru couldn’t be prouder of what they have both achieved in their time with the company.

Luke and his brother Lewis are part of an established team of highly qualified, locally based technicians who have grown in knowledge and experience whilst riding the wave of opportunity that’s come to the Welsh film and TV industry over the last few years.

Luke began his journey on the road to fully-fledged DIT in 2016, when he joined Mission Cymru to assist a senior technician on FX’s Will. Since then Luke has been involved with numerous projects shooting in and around the capital, including A Discovery of Witches, Jamie Johnson and War of the Worlds.

In 2018 Mission Cymru’s ranks grew to include Lewis, Luke’s twin brother. Lewis began his career looking after the video playback requirements on features Six Minutes To Midnight and You Should Have Left, before taking the reins on Dream Horse earlier this year.

And now, as His Dark Materials S2 comes to an end, the two brothers are working alongside each other on set under the watchful eye of the wonderful David Higgs BSC, and the team at Mission Cymru are so proud of them both.

Much like Screen Alliance Wales, Mission Cymru is dedicated to the training and support of aspiring film crew in Wales, and strives to share its specialist knowledge across a wide range of projects shooting in Cardiff and beyond. With a dedicated office space in Cardiff since 2016, and a recent relocation to an even bigger space, Mission Cymru looks to continue supporting the local sector with bespoke kit, workflow solutions and support - all engineered for local budgets and requirements.

Mission Cymru provides on-set DITs, data managers, video playback operators and equipment. From its office in Cathays, it offers LTO archiving, high-speed uploads and additional data management services.
