This marked a great achievement for a Staffordshire based company that is beating the recession and employing more staffs to support the growth.
The company was born out of a desire to better support media companies involved in production of music videos, TV dramas/films, PR and events, by offering a more personal service, and by offering a broader choice of locations to meet their needs.
The growth has heralded the firm establishment of UKFilmLocation.com as a major supplier for what is a niche industry with high resource demands and huge barriers to success.
Tim Beasley, UKFilmLocation.com Director notes... "This is a major achievement for our company to cross the 600 location barrier, let alone 700 locations, and underlines that the investment we've made in internal process restructuring, upgrades to our website, and changes to the methods we have adopted to better support our clients and location owners are all proving to be successful.
2012 was our best year on record, with UKFilmLocation.com being granted contracts for many high profile bookings (Tulisa, Roll Deep, Tinchy Stryder, SKY, ITV, Diversity, and many more household names) and I'm confident that this list will continue to grow as our location database expands and we are able to support even more requests with even more specific requirements.
I'm also extremely proud of our growing team, and that our owners have faith in our abilities to deliver them contracts. This is borne our by the fact that the company has an incredibly loyal location owner base with approximately 95% of our locations being exclusive to the company (with no dictat or incentives to retain exclusivity.)
UKFilmLocation.com is growing at a fantastic rate and is now working with some of the best known brands across Music, TV, Film and Events in the UK, but there is always more work to do...
As we continue into 2013 we have set ever more aggressive targets for the company to achieve, and we will work tirelessly to achieve these as our location owners are depending on us to deliver them an income.
Client bookings keep us in business, and growing, but our locations owners are incredibly important because without them we have no business! This is why we make absolutely certain that owners are paid promptly, and they get paid the money that we agree upfront. No tricks, no catches - what we agree is what they receive, and often on the same day as shooting starts.
There will be more press releases coming about films in development that we've supplied locations for etc, but unfortunately we cant discuss these now. Needless to say that 2013 is already looking to be a bumper year for our company."
Started in 2005, UKFilmLocation.com has now established itself as one of the major independent film and photographic locations agencies in the UK. The company supplies locations for music videos, photographic shoots, TV adverts/Drama's and Events for short, medium and long term contracts in the UK and across Europe.
UKFilmLocation.com has also recently announced an Agent Scheme which pays a bonus to people/companies who feed 3rd party owned locations for inclusion into its database. Interested parties should contact us through our website for further information.
