THE ORGANISATION that helps enable TV and movie crews to shoot in Keighley has launched a new service for filmmakers.

Screen Yorkshire has launched a region-wide crew and facilities service so that productions filming in Yorkshire can source experienced local crews and film and TV supply-chain companies. 

It will run alongside the Film Office’s locations service, meaning that film and TV productions now have a single-entry point to a comprehensive production liaison service across the whole of Yorkshire and Humber.

The service also aims help counter the impact of Covid-19 on freelancers, many of whom have been particularly badly hit by the slowdown in production.

The new crew and facilities service will include networking and promotional opportunities to support regional crew and film and TV supply chain companies.

It will be managed by Screen Yorkshire’s Film Office team, who have more than 50 years combined experience working on some of the best-known productions filmed in Yorkshire.

The Film Office will also be running regular networking opportunities for crew, following the success of an online Friday Freelancer Forum.

The Film Office team also announced last month that it has adapted its location service to offer virtual and socially distanced recces for productions preparing to shoot in the region.

 Screen Yorkshire has worked with production companies and projects averaging between £10m and £20m each. These have included The English Game and Peaky Blinders (both filmed in Keighley) Gentleman Jack, Downton Abbey, Ackley Bridge and Emmerdale.
