Production Service

From our base in Gateshead we provide a free and invaluable production service for film and TV productions shooting anywhere in the North East of England. We aim to promote the region and ensure that not only does filming go smoothly but that we maximise benefits of production for the region.

Having worked in the past with many high profile dramas including ITV’s Vera and BBC’s Inspector George Gently, CBBC’s Wolfblood and Dumping Ground, and features including Ken Loach’s I Daniel Blake, Transformers, Atonement, and Harry Potter, we are ideally placed to help with locations, crew, facilities, local and regional contacts, accommodation and much more.

Use the following form to find information regarding locations, crew, facilities and production companies or contact us for a more bespoke service.

We are always looking for locations, especially private homes. You can register any type of property here as long as it is in the north east. The most important part of your listing is photographs which you can upload or send to gayle@northernmedia.org. Your listing does not place you under any obligation to allow filming nor does it carry any guarantees of filming at your property.

Your listing will need admin approval please allow at least two working days.

If you have a north east base and are looking for work in film and TV you can register here. You must have at least one professional credit in the last 5 years for each category with the exception of New Entrant, Trainee and Runner categories. You will also need to upload your CV.

Using regionally based crew with local knowledge is beneficial to any production and can prove much more cost effective than bringing them from outside of the region. The North East has a wealth of experienced crew, many of whom learnt their trade in the region before broadening their horizons and then bringing that knowledge and those skills back to the region with them. Our database allows you to search for the region’s best crew, the regional talent who will help make your shoot a success. We can also circulate job opportunities to specific grades and advertise using our social media outlets.

We have many regional facilities companies ready to work on your production.

Our database allows you to search through images of the region’s amazingly diverse locations, from coast to castle, shipyard to skyline, allowing you to find everything from iconic scenery to hidden gems. Simply add your choice to favourites, choose Enquire About These Locations and we will be in touch with more details.
