FilmFixer handles around 8000 film shoots a year.
FilmFixer was started in 2007 to provide administrative and practical support for local authorities and landowners wishing to maximise income from location filming in London. The need for this service came about after the London Filming Partnership Agreement was signed by all 33 boroughs, which had to commit to being film friendly and establish a key point of contact to deal with enquiries. Directors Andrew and Karen had been working freelance on films and TV in London for years. They were convinced that boroughs would struggle to deliver this service. Their idea was to encourage the boroughs to outsource their film services to enable greater efficiencies and better relationships with stakeholders within each borough.
We are committed to doing what is right for our clients and we put their wishes at the centre of our operations and thinking whether they are film industry professionals or local authorities, boroughs, councils or residents.
We manage efficient, profit-making services on behalf of London boroughs. We also manage filming in private locations on behalf of Lee Valley Regional Park, Peabody Housing Trust, Butlers Wharf, Potters Field Park, and many others.
‘We have been working with Filmfixer for many years now, and are very happy with the service they provide. Our Film Officer is a local resident, which really helps her sell our borough to production companies and location managers. The service is professional and thorough, they work hard to protect our residents' interests, while handling the many enquiries we receive each year.’
‘FilmFixer get the job done – they are swift, clear, concise and ambitious for their clients. They have worked with us in a consistent, determined, flexible way. Great people to work with.’
