#behindtheads on location in Brum
We’re proud to be one of the few dedicated TV production companies for advertising in Birmingham. Having bases both in London and Birmingham just makes life that little bit more interesting as each city has its own unique buzz.
There’s not a lot of film activity in Birmingham, so compared to London, there aren’t as many studios or filming databases where you can hunt for your locations. This just means you have to be a little more creative when picking where you want to film.
With the recent £1 billion transformation of the city, Birmingham has undergone a significant change in the recent months. She’s even been named City of the Year at the MIPIM UK awards!
The revamped New Street Station, The Mailbox and the opening of the Resorts World leisure complex are pumping a great amount of traffic into the city, and are adding to its draw as an exciting place to visit and do business.
Birmingham is a good looking city, and with a mere 1.1 million people living here, rather than London’s 8.539 million, there’s a little more elbow room whilst filming on the streets! Just one of its perks.
One of our recent productions was shot completely in the second city, across four gorgeous Birmingham sites.
You know we love a good behind the scenes, so let’s let the pictures do the talking.
Four locations, one day, rolled into two minutes. Enjoy.
