Filming and finance in Liverpool
With stages in the South-East at record high occupancy (not helped by Disney taking over Pinewood), finding available studio space is becoming extremely problematic; so with Twickenham Studios’ announced expansion into Liverpool and a new regional film fund, many producers are now looking northwards towards Merseyside.
The Liverpool Film Office looks after all aspects of production in the city region with a team of experienced film professional providing a free service including location finding, permissions & liaison, parking, traffic control, sourcing local labour & suppliers etc. ensuring all production needs are met quickly and efficiently.
Meanwhile the City Region Production Fund has been created to help drive the further growth of the region’s film and television sector by investing in a diverse portfolio of high-quality content. Open to qualifying local, national and international production companies, the Fund can support the production of feature films, TV drama, animation and scripted comedy series, with investments of up to £500,000 per project.
Chris Moll heads it and will explain how it all works.
