Film/Special Effects/Green Screen Studios in London/UK area...
show user profile  ssava
Hi all!
So...we're in pre-production for one of our movies which is Live Action/Green Screen (ala Sin City/300).

We've been asked to look into making the film in London and I thought I would see if there are any recommendations to studios to work with in the UK area.

We'd need film crews, green screen, makeup/prosthetics, compositing, and lots of effects work.

It's a $10 million budget movie. So not on the high end.

Can I get some recommendations/references?

The only thing that springs to my mind is somewhere like Double Negative (weird as another thread for them started today).

I reckon someone like Simon Reeves might know of a few though. The Mill? Do they do this sort of stuff? I don't even know... I'm going to go drink coffee now.

Thank you. Hope some more UK people can point me in the right direction...

Mill and DNeg don't really do that kind of thing, it's more production work while they're post production innit (though they may do a little)

Not deep in the knowledge for places to do that kind of thing though I'm afraid, I know someone who might though so I'll and pass you on.

I don't know if this would help but you could check out ads from a Cinefex magazine.

Thanks. I was hoping some of you had worked with some of these production companies.

We would need everything. Storyboards to lighting to cinematographers to line producers to casting agents to editing and so on.

We have plans to do it here in the states...but we've been asked about the possibility to do it in London since the studio we're working with is from London (special rebates and such).

While we'll get recommendations from them...I was hoping for my own research.
