Filming Options in Bristol

To ensure you have a successful film shoot, you'll need some help from various local companies. There's a lot to consider when planning a shoot: you'll need caterers to feed and transport your crew and find a studio where you can shoot in a controlled environment.

  • Film Studios

Film studios typically contain production spaces, dressing rooms, makeup rooms, wardrobe rooms, production offices and green rooms. The controlled environment gives your talented crew the space to work their magic.

  • Caterer
    A busy crew will become a hungry crew. Hiring an experienced, fully-equipped catering team will ensure that the crew is adequately fed and watered, meaning you can spend more time on the shoot. Professional caterers will also offer a range of options for those with dietary requirements, such as vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free meals.

    If you don't have one already, you'll probably need to hire a van to transport your equipment between filming locations. Luckily, Bristol is home to several reputable van-hire companies.
