What they say...

Adur and Worthing Councils logo

"The easy to use, tailor made software makes it simple to manage filming applications, for both the customers and ourselves with prompting emails sent when an action is required. The team do an excellent job of carrying out most of the tasks leading up to an application, and their extensive experience within the filming industry makes everything continue to run smoothly from start to finish. The advice around setting fees for the budgets available from individual film-makers is especially valuable to encourage return business and make the process cost effective and worthwhile. Without this partnership, we would struggle to manage the level of applications received in such a timely and efficient manner, and we are really happy to continue working together to provide a Film Friendly Service."

"Previously we had a dedicated member of staff to handle filming applications. Given that we've had to tighten the purse strings as a council, passing over the baton meant that we made a significant financial saving (not to mention the headaches and paperwork)."
