Pro Motion Hire is to open an office at The Sharp Project in Manchester.

The facility, which will operate under the name Pro Motion Manchester, is due to open in March. It will be run by technical director Alain Lolliot and former S+O Media head of operations Jess Reese, who has taken on the role of facilities director.

The facility will supply the same kit as Pro Motion’s London and Brighton bases, as well as offering a crew service and technical training courses and events. These will include camera workshops, self-shooting courses, equipment maintenance sessions, guides to 4K/UHD and data management training.

Pro Motion managing director Duncan Martin said: “Alain and Jess offer a unique combination of production and technical expertise that will help content creators in the region get the most from their equipment and make the best content possible.”

Pro Motion Manchester is a joint venture between its directors and Pro Motion Hire.
