North East Screen Film Office was an invaluable resource for us and it’s always good to know that there is a regional office that is proactive, engaged and knowledgeable. We’ve done two films already in the North East so already had a way in for lots of things and crew we liked working with but still we found reason to use the Film Office resource and even if North East Screen couldn’t necessarily help on some fronts they still checked in with us frequently which often brought to mind a question to ask!

Thanks for the support!

We received premium production support; we would not be able to do it without them. Our core team were not local, and the knowledge of the main locations, and access to the crew data base was extremely useful. The responsiveness, and fantastic customer service were deeply appreciated during the pre-production haste.

Special thank you to Katie of the Film Office

An absolutely perfect airport location, we had complete control of a brand-new airport check in for 12 hours.

At a precarious time for independent production in the regions, North East Screen’s Film Office has proven time and again to be an invaluable partner in helping to make our production far more achievable than it might otherwise be.

We required a last-minute filming day for our fast turnaround VT for The One Show, the team at North East Screen were invaluable for us. They came back almost immediately and liaised between ourselves and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council to gain the necessary permissions and advice.

Although our ‘spend’ in the region was minimal i.e. food/petrol related costs, the value to our production as a whole was incalculable.
