Could your property be in the next James Bond movie?

You’d be amazed at how many big box office movies have been filmed in and around Surrey. Skyfall, Tim Burton’s Alice Through The Looking Glass, Wonder Woman and not forgetting all the TV dramas such as Downton Abbey and The Crown.

But did you know your home or office could play a starring role too? By listing your property on the Surrey Film Office’s locations database it can be considered by the film industry as a filming location. This includes filming for feature films, short films, TV series/dramas, documentaries, commercials, corporate videos, music videos, factual, reality and photoshoots.

Surrey Film Office is an organisation set up to promote Surrey as a first class filming location. But it also makes sure that Surrey residents and businesses continue to benefit from filming in the county and disruption is kept to a minimum throughout the filming process.

What happens if I sign up?

If you sign up to the locations database, your property is included in daily searches to find the right location for the next production. Registration of your property onto the database is free. However, if a production books your property through this referral, there will be a 10% commission payable to the Surrey Film Office.

Whilst fees for filming in private properties are at the owners’ discretion, the Surrey Film Office can offer support and advice around these negotiations.

If you’re interested in promoting your property on their database, or would like to find more information about what they do, please contact the Surrey Film Office by email at filming@surreycc.gov.uk or by phoning 020 8213 2737. You can visit the Surrey Film Office  website for more details.
