Camera hire in Bristol and the South West

When looking for camera hire in Bristol or the South West you’ll find a host of possibilities. The South West offers filmmakers fast access to the countryside and coast. Furthermore, the region has an incredible pool of talented technicians, camera operators and producers. Characterised by a mindset for outdoor adventure it’s a popular area for wildlife filmmakers and adventure sports fans.

Countryside and Coastlines

From Gloucester and Bristol in the north all the way to the tip of the country at Lands End, the South West supports a thriving creative community. Bohemian cities like Bristol and Bath are teaming with freelance creatives. And certainly, location scouting is an easy job with the famous Somerset and Dorset countryside on your doorstep. Not to mention the unique coastal beauty of Devon and Cornwall.

Booming Business and BAFTAs

The South West has a strong tradition of creative arts and maintains excellent links with cultural organisations such as the Art Council and Screen South. Bristol City Council recently invested nearly £700,000 in the Bottle Yard Studios ensuring the South West continues to attract top film and TV contracts. Deputy Mayor of Bristol, Councillor Estella Tincknell, claims that 2015/16 saw an increase of 65% in location filming across Bristol and the region. It’s a booming area for freelancers with film and TV production seeing an inward investment of £16.7 million in 2015.

Bristol is home to the BBC’s Natural History Unit which recently produced the BAFTA award winning ‘Blue Planet 2’.  The BBC's presence has created a host of other facilities and service companies, so the region is well placed for almost any kind of project. We are already seeing a growing community of wildlife filmmakers sharing their kit on MyKitPlace. High profile BBC dramas such as ‘Sherlock’, ‘Poldark’ and ‘Wolf Hall’ have all filmed in the region. This, in turn, has attracted American interest with ABC’s ‘Galavant’ having been filmed in Bristol.
