Film and television industry in Bristol

(This is not a BFVS Filmmaking in Bristol event but it may be of interest to members, particularly relating to locations.)

Rob Champion, is a film and television location manager and former Bristol City Council Film Officer who specialises in TV drama and, as well as telling us about his experiences in this area, he will give an overview of the current film and television industry in Bristol.

He will also cover how film and television locations are found, the dealing with owners, what is important in selecting a location and much more.
