Making connections at Stationers’ Hall
Date posted: 24.09.2014
Last night, representatives of the London Filming Partnership joined members of the Locations Crew Diary at the City of London's historic Stationers' Hall for an evening of networking hosted by Film London.
The event saw location managers, scouts, assistant location managers, unit managers and location assistants- many of them members of the Locations Crew Diary - come together to talk about recently completed projects, discuss what they are working on now and look ahead to future opportunities to work together.
They were joined by representatives from the London Film Partnership (LFP) including Kew Gardens, the Inner and Middle Temple, BBC, Natural History Museum, National Portrait Gallery and the V&A.
These quarterly networking events provide partners with the opportunity to meet one another and connect with up to 70 location managers from our Locations Crew Diary availability service.
Working together to make London film-friendly
The London Filming Partnership is Film London's network of over 270 organisations and agencies, who work together to make filmmaking in the city as easy as possible.
The network includes nearly all of the London Borough Film Offices, alongside studios, post-production companies, broadcasters and industry bodies as well as organisations such as the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, the Royal Parks, the National Trust and the Ministry of Defence.
In addition, a wide variety of individual locations including the evening's host, Stationers' Hall, are active partners.
Earlier in the day, London Filming Partnership members had attended a Production Sustainability Seminar, where they learned about how sustainability could make their jobs easier, deliver significant financial savings and create a green local community from BAFTA and National Trust experts.
Connecting London-based crew with productions in the capital
Film London's Locations Crew Diary is an exclusive annual membership scheme. The long-running and successful service connects location department crew to production teams that are in London, or planning to come to the capital.
Before heading to the reception, members of the Locations Crew Diary had met with Film London at a Location Managers Forum, to discuss various topical debates and issues surrounding shooting in London.
The event was organised with the help of ITA events, a Silver Member of the London Filming Partnership. To find out more about filming opportunities at ITA Venue Stationers' Hall, contact Suzy Kahn on 020 7236 1507 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
