Default Century21's work on non-Anderson productions

C21st are credited for the volcano from the movie version of Up Pompeii. Did Meddings oversee this? Why did they lend their services to an outside production?

Did C21st provide effects for other films or TV shows at the time?

The Pylon sequence was indeed Meddings work.
He gave the sequence to some of his underlings at C21 as he was busy on Doppelanger but stepped in when they struggled with some aspect of it..
Up Pompeii was model construction by C21 but pyro effects (Volcano) by Les Bowie I was believe....
