Location Manager

For Film and TV, adverts & documentary

Derek has over twenty years of location management experience of filming around Scotland for film, television, adverts and documentary location.

He was worked with the smallest documentary crews to the largest of international film crews shooting in Scotland.

Getting permission for filming in Scotland, dealing with local authorities, police and landowners etc., can be tricky, but Derek has the experience to make things easy for any visiting film crews ensuring that filming in Scotland can be achieved with the minimum of fuss.

Often gaining clearance for filming permission in Scotland’s highlands and wild terrain often means dealing with The National Trust and Historic Scotland. Getting the permits for filming in these Scottish locations is a process that Derek is well familiar with therefore providing the green light for film production to be carried out unhindered.

Location Scout

As well as an extensive photographic database of locations in Scotland, Derek’s skills as a photographer and keen eye for a location and shot, means we can find your perfect location with you having to even leave your production office. With the smallest of briefs, we can source and acquire photographs of virtually any building, space, interior, exterior anywhere in Scotland. City or country, we’ll get the right location and shot for you.

Photographic Database

With a large database of photographs incorporating interiors and exteriors of stately homes throughout the country, to city locations where we have a proven track record in working with local authorities and planning departments, police etc. in order to achieve the set ups and controls required to accomplish the shots that Directors, DOP’s and Producers need to make their projects special.
