Capture The Great Outdoors With Film Hampshire

As we move from spring to summer, it's time to take advantage of the warmer weather and longer daylight hours to enjoy all that the great outdoors has to offer the film maker.
Hampshire is a rural county with a diverse landscape. Home to not one but two national parks, the scenery ranges from coastal marshes through ancient woodland to the rolling pastoral hills of the South Downs.
It's not just about the countryside. Hampshire contains several cities, large towns and centres of industry. For example the docks in Southampton cover a huge area and encompass a ferry terminal, cruise terminal and a container port, providing a stark contrast to the New Forest National Park which can be seen from the shoreline.
The towns of Portsmouth, Basingstoke and Farnborough are thriving business centres with many office and business sites available for a range of productions. In contrast, the historic centres of Winchester and Southampton can provide a huge variety of historical backdrops from the 9th Century onwards. Examples include the Tudor House in Southampton, and Winchester Cathedral which has been used in productions such as Elizabeth: A Golden Age and the Da Vinci Code.
Hampshire's rural landscape is also home to many farms and rural villages which are both picturesque and film friendly. Inspector Wexford and Midsomer Murders are just two productions of note to have been filmed in rural Hampshire.
Finding the perfect outdoor backdrop couldn't be easier with the free service offered by Film Hampshire. From woodland to farmland and beaches to business parks, plus film friendly villages and marinas, there's a wide variety of locations to choose from.
Film Hampshire have contacts at all of the district authorities in Hampshire, many of whom have a dedicated Film Liaison Officer, and work with other key agencies including Hampshire's Highways Team, meaning that access to an expert is just a phone call or click away.
Not only is Hampshire full of inspiring locations, it is also home to a huge array of companies serving the film industry. Using locally based companies is not only good for the environment, it can also help to keep costs down.
The fantastic Flying Pictures is just one of these services. Offering a wide variety of aerial filming services, they are experts in capturing the great outdoors from the sky.
Whether you're looking for underwater filming specialists or a TukTuk, you’re sure to find it amongst the comprehensive directory of county wide services.
