London’s still calling

16-11-2020

Film London’s Adrian Wootton tells Content London why he believes the UK film and television industry has never been in a better place and how there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

 

“If it moves in London, we have something to do with it,” says Film London’s CEO Adrian Wootton about his agency’s role in supporting the film and creative moving image industries.

 

His agency, alongside the British Film Commission, has a broad remit that encompasses television, animation, games and art, promoting and facilitating production as well as supporting talent development and film culture.

 

In the past year, says Wootton: “In the UK overall, we’ve been involved with 88% of film and television spend coming in from the US, and that represents something like £3.5bn. That’s dozens and dozens of big feature films and multiple high-end television series.”

 

Over 75% of those have been shot partly or wholly in London and the south-east of England. Westminster, St James’s and the City are all popular for productions wanting a classic London backdrop, while council estates are popular for soap operas and other TV series.
