Locate Productions


Established in 2006, we have worked in over 30 countries worldwide, building a reputation for excellence in production services for moving image and stills. We cater for both large and small-scale projects, taking pride in providing a cost-effective service.

Our worldwide network of industry professionals means we are ideally placed to produce your international shoot, either lining up local fixers or fully managing your project.

We also specialise in providing support for international crews coming to the UK to shoot, utilising the range of resources and contacts we have at our fingertips.

The Process


Budget & Schedule

We aim to personalise both budget and schedule to satisfy our clients’ individual briefs, and will work closely with you to ensure high quality, cost effective solutions.

Locations Research & Scouting

With over 20 years’ experience, we have an in-depth understanding of scouting unique locations. Within our own extensive location library we can provide over four thousand locations – from stylish penthouses to derelict warehouses and mountain roads. If you don’t find what you are looking for in our library our experienced location scouts will extend the search for your perfect location.

Casting

With an experienced in-house casting team and studio we can cover the casting for your project from beginning to end. Collaborating with well-established casting directors, talent and extras agencies allows us to provide the highest quality casting for your project – whether that’s professional models, ‘real people’, street casting or an individual with a specific skill.
If you prefer to bring in your own casting director we will be happy to work with you flexibly to accommodate your needs.

Styling & Props

Our experienced production team ensures every project is meticulously planned down to the finest detail – we can provide industry-leading stylists, hair and make-up artists, set builders, prop-masters and art department who have worked on some of the UK’s most successful advertising campaigns.

Travel & International

We have developed strong working relationships with professionals in over thirty countries worldwide, allowing us to bring together local expertise and international production quality. Our team is equipped to provide or advise upon any necessary documentation for travel, and can either travel with you or coordinate your project from the UK.

Equipment & Logistics

Established in 2012 in collaboration with lighting director Andrew Howe, our sister company Gripvan offers a bespoke approach to equipment supply and on-set support. Gripvan provides vehicles with all the equipment you need for a shoot, neatly stowed and readily available.
With a wealth of industry experience, Gripvan’s team can offer advice and guidance on all your equipment requirements.

Crew

Providing a high quality crew is of the utmost importance - after all, you're only as good as the people you work with. Our crew provides the best service possible from pre-production to shoot day, doing everything in our power to take care of you and your project.

Catering & Accomodation

Eating and sleeping well can make all the difference on a demanding shoot. We aim to provide high quality food and accommodation, supporting independent suppliers and locally grown organic produce wherever possible - catering for all dietary requirements.

Shoot

Our team’s thorough planning and detailed pre-production mean you can expect a smooth, trouble-free shoot and enjoy watching your ideas come to life.

Thinking of becoming a shoot location owner?

Have you ever found yourself wondering about the houses you see on screen, or in your favourite magazine? ‘Where do they find them?’ ‘Is it just a set, or an actual home?’ At Locate, we use real houses owned by real people for our shoots, and are always open to discovering new locations to add to our location library.
