scouting locations for filming

Location Management


Location Scouting

We have diligent scouts to find those hard to find last-minute locations. Our team works across all formats and will be able to find the locations which answer your creative and logistic needs.

Location Permits & Contracts

We take care of the paperwork, whether it be for a private home or for a multi-agency project encompassing district councils, highways, transport, utilities or police departments.

Location Reinstatement

We always ensure a location is returned back to its original state before we return the keys to the owners. Whether we have covered road markings, removed street furniture, dug trenches or put artificial snow along a street in September. Often we leave locations looking better and cleaner than we found them!
