FilmFixer Becomes The Largest Film Office In The UK

FilmFixer has been awarded the contract to run the film offices of London boroughs Islington and Lambeth as well as retaining its role as Camden's film office.
This makes FilmFixer the largest film office in the UK, responsible for over 6,500 film days per annum. In March the business was awarded the film office contracts for Kingston and Croydon in addition to the film office contracts it won in 2012 for Bromley, Bexley, Redbridge and Newham. FilmFixer already operates the film offices for both Southwark and Lewisham.
Filmfixer is now responsible for all aspects of filming, including enquiries, sourcing locations, applications, licences, payment and complaints in all eleven boroughs. This "one stop" approach is vital for servicing film, because of the speed of response required.
Andrew Pavord, FilmFixer’s joint managing director said: "In partnership with our client councils, we want to establish common standards and film friendly policies which will facilitate film production across London. The capital is already the world's third most popular city for filming, and our aim is to improve on that, which will be good for the boroughs where we work, as well as for London and the UK as a whole. Our one-stop approach ensures that the film industry gets the consistently high standard of service it needs, residents and businesses have their interests protected and local authorities maximise their revenue from filming in their boroughs."
Film Fixer has developed FilmApp, an innovative online application and notification processes which speeds up, and makes the whole process of organising filming in the public realm more efficient. The company uses FilmApp in the all the boroughs for which it has film office responsibility, as well as licensing it out to other local authority film offices – a total of nineteen now use FilmApp.
