A room with a view
Camm & Hooper’s spectacular event venues which include Banking Hall, Grace Hall, Tanner Warehouse Bermondsey, Victorian Bath House and Six Storeys on Soho make for brilliant ‘front of camera’ filming locations. However, they are first and foremost event venues. This means they already have busy calendars, and tend to command relatively high fees which event clients are accustomed to but which film productions often can’t afford.
Location Collective work closely with Camm & Hooper to find ways for filming to work alongside the event calendar of each of their venues. We tailor our approach to the strengths of each building to ensure maximum filming revenue without impacting Camm & Hooper’s core business. We work to understand periods during which each venue is likely to be less busy with events, helping the Camm & Hooper team fill gaps in their calendars, and we create filming cancellation policies that ensure no potential event revenue is lost. We also look at ways in which each building can be used as supporting space for production use. Banking Hall and Grace Hall, for example, are used during the daytime (when there is less demand for events) by productions who need space for crowd holding (accommodating large numbers of cast) when shooting at nearby locations.
Over the course of our five-year relationship we have generated £400k in filming revenue at Camm & Hooper sites, with productions including London Has Fallen, Lucky Man, The Mummy, Mary Poppins Returns, Vanity Fair and Judy.
Location Collective fully understand our priorities as an event driven organisation and work to ensure that we can enjoy maximum benefit from filming whilst working within certain parameters. Their team are passionate about what they do and work hard to ensure they provide everything we need to be comfortable that filming doesn’t compromise our venues. They are a pleasure to work with and I hugely value our working relationship with them.
