Planning your shoot

Given that London is a constanly evolving city, it's crucial productions give prior thought to the practicalities of their shoot. Film Office have compiled a selection of useful links to help manage your shoot:


Letter Drop (Resident and business template letter):

Successful filming relies upon local residents and businesses receiving at least one-week's notice.

London Roadworks

Search by postcode or street name and then date to find out what engineering may be going on in your area.


Red Routes

You may have difficulties planning a shoot on a highway which is designated as a red route. Although only taking up 5% of London's road network, they handle 30% of the city's traffic. Check if you will be affected.



Green Screen

Green Screen helps productions filming in the capital to make their shoot environmentally friendly.

Every production signed up to the scheme receives a tailored plan, specialised advice, and tips for each department, making it easier than ever to reduce carbon (and costs).

Once certified, the Green Screen Environmental Stamp can be used to promote your green credentials.
