IT’S HARD to find an ob­vi­ous

Game of Thrones con­nec­tion be­tween star Peter Din­klage and the York­shire village of Dod­worth. Di­ary

was in­trigued to dis­cover that a sur­vey­ing com­pany based in Dod­worth played a be­hind-the-scenes role in the cre­ation of a Su­per Bowl com­mer­cial that was viewed by more than 100 mil­lion peo­ple.

1st Hori­zon Sur­vey­ing & Engi­neer­ing Lim­ited de­liv­ered on-set 3D laser scan­ning ser­vices for a prime-slot com­mer­cial that was screened dur­ing Su­per Bowl 2018.

A spokesman told Di­ary: “The com­mer­cial, which fea­tured Peter Din­klage and long-time sil­ver screen leg­end Mor­gan Free­man, in­cluded a face-off be­tween the two ac­tors, rep­re­sent­ing Dori­tos and Mtn Dew re­spec­tively.

“1st Hori­zon’s ex­per­tise was used to cap­ture mul­ti­ple 3D scans, on-set, us­ing so­phis­ti­cated Faro Fo­cus 3D laser scan­ners.

“The scan data was then ex­ported to Poin­tCloud soft­ware, be­fore be­ing de­liv­ered to the com­mer­cial’s pro­duc­tion team.”

It’s fur­ther proof that York­shire’s ex­per­tise is val­ued on a global stage.
