Why our film and media travel consultants have star quality

by Traveleads | August 19, 2020 | Latest News

Much like the complexities involved in arranging sports travel, no two trips for the film and media production industry are the same – because, of course, no two projects are the same.

Whether you’re an independent film company who needs to visit three far flung locations in as many days, or a large media production company creating Britain’s finest TV dramas with an ensemble cast, our team of expert consultants are here to help.

What makes film and media travel unique?

Travel for film and media production can be incredibly complex. Considerations our partners often have to bear in mind, include:

  • Schedules: Production schedules are renowned for being complicated – and stringent. With factors including numerous itineraries, set availability and budgets to consider, planners have to live by their schedules – which means they need travel assistance to do so
  • Equipment: When we talk travel in this industry, it’s not just a case of getting people from A to B. Think expensive (and pretty hefty) recording equipment, carefully crafted set parts and weighty costumes. Any delays on the ‘stuff’ means a delay in filming, leading to a potential financial loss
  • Tailor-made service: With so many factors to consider and attention to detail required, this isn’t a cookie cutter situation. Each aspect needs managing impeccably by the experts to ensure everyone involved – whether cast or crew – can get on with what they do best
