Malcolm Mills recently returned from the UK after visiting the Warner Brothers, Studios Leavesden. He spent about a week visiting his home country, and following up with the lights built for Warner Brothers a few months back.

 Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden (formerly known as Leavesden Film Studios; colloquially Leavesden Studios or simply Leavesden), is a film and media complex owned by Warner Bros. The studios and backlot sit on the site of the former Rolls-Royce plc factory at Leavesden Aerodrome, which was an important centre of aircraft production during World War II. It is situated in south west Hertfordshire approximately 18 miles (29 km) northwest of central London, in Abbots Langley. [Read more via Wikipedia.]

Just a few months ago, Cinemills shipped out several newly built Silver Bullet 20K's for WB. Cinemills was honored to be part of that project.

Fact: Did you know that the Olympic Stadium in London will be the most lit event in Europe during 2012?
