Conservation During Projects
Historic venues make great film and TV locations, and filming can provide venues with valuable income and publicity.
Spencer & Fry understands the restrictions of the historic properties, as well as the needs of a production crew. Working in partnership with venue staff and location managers, we negotiate ways of making sure the shoot is a rewarding experience for all and doesn’t damage historically important interiors and objects.
Film productions include: Transformers: The Last Knight, Victoria and Abdul, Crooked House Wonder Womanand Phantom Thread.
TV productions include: The Crown(Netflix), Royal Recipes (BBC), Taboo(BBC), Action Team(ITV), and Trust(FX).
Building or display projects can present risks for collections and historic interiors.
With our extensive experience as project conservators for the National Trust and English Heritage, we can plan and oversee the packing and moving of collections, specify and install protection in-situ, and work with contractors to ensure the safety of the collections.
