Screen Yorkshire is planning to establish a regional Crew and Facilities Service to connect production companies filming in Yorkshire with locally based freelance crew and film and TV supply-chain companies.
Whilst the industry is operating in unprecedented times, we are working behind the scenes to ensure that the region is ready to gear up to the increase in demand for experienced regional crew and facilities once the COVID-19 crisis is over.
We are now calling on experienced freelancers and facility companies based in Yorkshire & Humber to complete our Crew and Facilities Survey. The survey will enable us to establish the scale of the existing crew base in Yorkshire and Humber and roll-out a comprehensive Crew and Facilities Database that will be serviced by our Film Office Team.
Some of the recent productions Screen Yorkshire has supported include Gentleman Jack, The Steph Show, Peaky Blinders, Ackley Bridge, Emmerdale, Last Tango In Halifax, All Creatures Great And Small, Victoria, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and Official Secrets.
The Facilities database is open to companies based in Yorkshire and Humber that supply goods or services to the film and television industry. Any company that has worked in film or television from catering to casting and security to studios is encouraged to respond.
The Crew database is open to all freelance crew members who have at least one professional credit and are either based in or have worked in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
