ABOUT THE LOCATION COLLECTIVE

The Collective is the ‘go-to’ film and TV locations agency for industry professionals shooting in London, with over 1,500 properties for hire to every major production taking place within the capital. We represent a growing number of these locations, hand-picked for their high filmic potential, exclusively.

Our main USP is our membership. 70% of the location scouts and managers working in the city are signed up as exclusive members of The Collective. This means they constantly refer exciting, newly ‘discovered’ locations to us alone, and we feel privileged to say they frequently call on us first when they need to source locations for the films and TV projects they work on.

Over the past 12 months a small selection of clients include Goodbye Christopher Robin, Jason Bourne, The Mummy, Florence Foster Jenkins, Justice League, BFG, London Has Fallen, Now You See Me 2, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Bridget Jones’ Baby, My Cousin Rachel, Ab Fab: The Movie, Jack Reacher 2: Never Go Back,Black Mirror, The Night Manager, The Crown, Lucky Man, Humans, Marcella, Fleabag and Luther.

Our team is made up of three divisions:

Commercial: Historic buildings, office buildings, warehouses universities and so on
Residential: Any privately owned properties from stately homes to penthouses to Victorian terraces
Production Services: Production support including studio space, pop up production offices, wardrobe and make-up space etc.
The Collective shares a large, open plan office in Holborn with sister company Canvas Events. Our unique building is a very busy filming and production services location in its own right, so is constantly buzzing with production activity. We’re a tight-knit team of around 20, working together to hit quarterly financial targets, grow our portfolio of locations and build relationships and our reputation within the industry.
