Top 5 Film Locations: February
It's that time of the month again when Film Office delves into our locations library and serves up our recommendations for film locations we feel are prime for shooting in on or around ;feast your eyes on this lot.
At Number 5 is the Boat House. A 1977, quintessentially English, 40 foot long narrow-boat, with features that include traditional exterior paintwork, wood lined salon, galley and cabin with multi fuel burner. The interior is finished with bespoke and reclaimed fittings in a boutique, vintage style and there is a large back deck and charming covered front deck. The top part of windows can be removed for filming of interior from outside and there is also the added bonus of ample parking easy access to towpath and location change along the canal.
Sitting pretty at Number 4 is the Town House in London's popular west end. This prime piece of real estate offers an abundance of filming opportunities and can be dressed to suit any period or genre. Set over 3 floors with 15 bedrooms and two terraces this house has been designed to be both functional and adaptable. The cherry on the proverbial cake is the large studio room that can be found on the second floor that has floor to ceiling mirrors and can serve as anything from a gallery and drinks reception to a dance and rehearsal space.
February's Number 3 is Carnegie Library. Tucked away in the heart of a residential area between Denmark Hill and Herne Hill is this imposing red brick Grade II listed building. With a bright and airy lending library, gallery, garden, upstairs office space and interesting basement there is great scope for filming and stills alike.
Second place goes to the Bare Brick Warehouse. This amazing location is a former Victorian warehouse and is a fantastically versatile space that can accommodate all manner of events, film and photography projects. It comprises of a main atrium and vaulted bricked arches, which can be divided or left as a single open plan space and there is a scissor lift and black out facilities available.
February's top spot goes to the 1970's Retro House. This very special 1970s property is the epitome of retro-chic and includes an impressive roof deck and groovy indoor swimming pool. Step inside and you are transported back in time with many original features, fixtures and props completing the decor. Wood panelled walls, vintage furniture galore, geometric print wall paper and even a mini bar.
