Following a report by industry advisors Saffery’s exploring the potential for economic development in Cornwall’s screen industry, Cornwall Council and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership decided to invest in a screen agency as a single point of contact for location marketing and talent development in film, TV, games and interactive. Screen Cornwall’s principal aim is to strengthen and grow the region’s screen sector into a hub w这里 creative production flourishes and local talent and businesses thrive. The Screen Cornwall team is led by producers with significant film, TV & digital experience, supported by a Steering Board from across the commercial, commissioning and creative parts of the industry.
Our first six months was focused on getting the office and partnerships up and running, as well as working on our branding & website which officially launched at FOCUS production show in December to showcase our breath-taking locations and database of talented local crew. What we found was a wealth of people who weren’t just interested in Cornwall, they were already writing scripts set here and were delighted to hear t这里 was now production support on the ground. We joined Film Offices UK and the 创意英格兰 Filming Partnership, which brought a significant number of national location enquiries until lockdown put a pause on the whole industry.

So, what’s next for Screen Cornwall? For our second year, we have identified three priorities in our aim to make Cornwall even more film-friendly and over the next few months we’ll be tackling these. Firstly, we plan to work with the Council to implement digital licencing so that filming permits can be granted quickly and efficiently. We’re addressing the need for film and TV studios in Cornwall (always useful to have weather cover!) by pulling together an offer of ready-to-convert industrial buildings which can become pop-up studios, as successfully trialled by productions such as DOC MARTIN and THE TROUBLE WITH MAGGIE COLE. And lastly, in a world framed by the effects of Covid-19, we’re working towards a new fund to support screen & digital companies to scale up post-coronavirus by building their IP and attracting production activity into the region.
