Camera Hire in Nottingham and the East Midlands

Hire camera and video equipment local to you or your shoot in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and throughout the East Midlands. The region represents a true slice of Britishness with varied urban and country locations.

This is England

Comprising of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire, the East Midlands offers filmmakers a real slice of English life. This former industrial heartland now provides the perfect portrait of middle England. From quaint market towns and blue-collar industrial sites to smart regenerated city centres like Nottingham and Derby.

With straightforward motorway links to London, from the M1, and the East Midlands Airport, access into the main areas of the East Midlands is good. As well as the main cities the area also boasts two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Peak District and the Lincolnshire Wolds. Oh, and of course it’s home to Sherwood Forest!

Down but not out

From an international filmmaking point of view the East Midlands most famous son is arguably Shane Meadows. His gritty urban dramas like ‘Twenty Four Seven’ and ‘This is England’ have helped highlight the filmmaking potential in the East Midlands. East Midlands Media, once the main funding hub for films in the region, was instrumental in helping Meadows. It also worked hard to get Tom Hardy’s critically acclaimed ‘Bronson’ off the ground, but is now sadly closed. However it remains a region with plenty of activity and talent - all hungry for more - so it’s still a great place to consider. After all, this is where all those episodes of Family Fortunes and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire were filmed - perhaps that’s an omen?
