What people say

Thurrock is already a popular location choice for film crews.

Rare TV

"Thanks for all your help with the filming and smoothing the way with locations. You have some really amazing places to film in the borough, I'll come back again next time I'm doing a project that will give me an excuse!"
Nathan Budd, Director / Producer, Rare TV – BBC4 Documentary, 2020

Raptor Pictures

"I'd like to extend my thanks to Thurrock Film Office for all their help in connection with our recent filming of a driving sequence in the Tilbury area. They were very helpful, prompt and efficient. I look forward to working with them again in the future."
Joel Homes, Supervising Location Manager, Raptor Pictures – ITV Crime Drama, 2018

Yaya Productions

"Thurrock Film Office were very supportive to Yaya Productions Limited. We used an East Tilbury Estate for our fictional town setting in the upcoming feature film 'His House', due to be released in cinemas in Autumn 2018. We filmed 5 consecutive days with road closures, street dressing, action vehicles, crowd and even a night shoot and all went incredibly well."
Georgette Turner, Supervising Location Manager, Yaya Productions – His House, 2018

Pulse Films

"Thurrock (Purfleet) offers a varying landscape that feels 'out of London' and a breath of fresh air for film locations within the M25. The Film Office were also very thorough and helpful in helping us achieve what we needed."
Alistair Vlok, Location Manager, Pulse Films – Boots Christmas advert, 2017
