Camera Hire in East Anglia

Looking for camera hire in East Anglia? You've come to the right place. Britain's 'hidden home' of locations and talent, has little in the way of established rental facilities. Despite this, there is a strong community of filmmakers with a proud production history ready to hire out their own kit.

Rural, dry and versatile

East Anglia can feel like Britain's most rural area and yet the heart of the region is only an hour from the M25. East Anglia and Suffolk offer filmmakers a range of diverse countryside locations to shoot, from the Norfolk Broads to abandoned airbases.  Furthermore Ipswich, Norwich, Swaffham and Aldershot provide quintessential market towns with historic and modern architecture. It's perfect for location filming too as it's the driest county in England! East Anglia provides the perfect playground for aspiring indie filmmakers.

Investment points to a strong future

For many years Norwich was the home to Anglian TV, then Meridan and ITV Anglia. With an eye on the future, the East of England Development Fund provided £4 million to redevelop the old Anglian TV site. It is now the EPIC Studios (East of England Production and Innovation Centre) and home to a new wave of production companies and other film services. EPIC is helping to retain and promote talent in the area, providing them with access to quality studio space and equipment.

Recent UK feature 'Private Peaceful' used East Anglia for it’s historic and rural setting. While Aldershot, an unassuming commuter town, formed the backdrop to 'Spaceship', a disturbing exploration of teen identity. The BBC’s regular factual shows 'Inside Out' and 'The Politics Show' are both made in the region. The town of Swaffham was the real home for ITV’s popular drama 'Kingdom', with Stephen Fry.
