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).
Historic objects deteriorate if they are displayed or stored in an unsuitable environment.
Spencer & Fry can advise on how to monitor temperature, relative humidity, light, UV levels, and dust in historic houses and museums. Improving the environment can sometimes be simple and inexpensive. However, for complicated issues, we consult with conservation scientists to provide the best advice.
