Predator on film

The Predator PTZ camera range from UK CCTV company, 360 Vision Technology, plays a part in a new film. THE WHITE KING is coming to UK cinemas in January 2017 from Signature Entertainment.

The sci-fi film featuring Jonathan Pryce, Agyness Deyn and Lorenzo Allchurch is set in a dystopian world and revolves around a 12-year-old boy who is coming to terms with his father’s imprisonment by a totalitarian state. The boy and his mother try to navigate through propaganda and government abuse, as they seek to reunite their family.

Director of Photography René Richter says: “Used in many scenes throughout the film, we employed the powerful aesthetics of 360 Vision Technology’s Predator camera to help establish the atmosphere of the social structure in the world of The White King.

“The film depicts a world where ordinary citizens are not allowed access to any form of technology, and where the technologically equipped elite control society. We found the futuristic and rugged appearance of the Predator cameras perfect for their role in the film.”

Shot on location in Hungary, 360 Vision supplied the filmmakers with black and white colour versions of the Predator camera, camera control equipment, and provided training for the film’s production staff on how to operate the cameras.

Mark Rees, Business Development Director at 360 Vision Technology, says: “360 Vision Technology is thrilled to have had the Predator camera chosen to appear in this compelling film. The Predator range of cameras is available in a number of technology versions to fulfil any HD, Hybrid, Thermal or Radar requirement. For The White King, we supplied the filmmakers with a number of brand new TC100 Cooled Thermal/HD Predator cameras, which were then cosmetically ‘outdoor’ weathered to make them look used!”
