South West Film operates a video production unit out of the country's second largest city of Birmingham. We produce a wide variety of promotional, corporate and tv commercials from our Birmingham base. Birmingham has long history of producing top quality film, TV and video productions with a number of high profile production companies operating from the city and using the varied locations on offer. The city has a diverse cultural background which has long been an inspiration to local filmmakers and creative industries.
Birmingham's place in film production means that there has been a hige range of genres shot in the city. People have been murdered, plotted Cold War espionage, danced in 1930s ballrooms, fought zombies and raced black taxis through the streets. Birmingham may often substitute for London but film crews prefer to shoot there as it’s cheaper and easier to travel between locations. Recently, the likes of Glenn Close and Steven Spielberg have made films there, while the first series of the BBC drama Line of Duty was shot in Birmingham.
