London Nw, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 28, 2009 -- With 80% of all filming in the UK taking place in and around London, and the availability of film-friendly rural estates in the area seriously limited, the news that Penn House and Estate is being represented by The Collective (www.location-collective.co.uk) is great news for film, television, photography and events production companies working in the Southeast of England. The Collective started promoting the location to the aforementioned industries on April 21st and has already received a handful of enquiries for filming and photography. With the next few months being the busiest of the UK filming calendar, The Collective is anticipating a high level of demand for Penn Estate.
The site is located near Amersham, Buckinghamshire, 29 miles from Central London and 15 miles from Pinewood Studios. Set in the rolling woodland of the The Chilterns it comprises a variety of farmhouses, cottages, agricultural buildings, woodlands, private roads, as well as Penn House itself, a beautiful 18th century manor house. The variety of building styles and environments, both interior and exterior, make this location one of immense cinematic potential to any production seeking a "one-stop-shop" rural filming location. With such a range of locations available on one privately owned site, Penn Estate is an extremely attractive proposition to film and television production companies learning to live with increasingly tight production budgets.
An increasing number of properties, commercial and residential, are being made available as filming locations, with the recognition that the right location can generate significant sums through filming, photography and events. However, with many property owners unaware of the safest and most lucrative way to proceed, the specialised knowledge of The Collective in the marketing, administration and management of location hires is invaluable.
The presence of an expert agency like The Collective is similarly attractive to those looking to hire locations. Location Coordinator, Lottie Mason, explains: "Our clients are usually extremely busy professionals, working to increasingly tight deadlines and very short turnaround times. They often don't have the time to find and shoot locations, make contact with the owners and then work out the logistical and legal practicalities of filming there. We understand what the priorities are for both the owner and the production, and are committed to making life as easy as possible for both parties".
Penn Estate is immediately available for filming, photography and events, and a comprehensive range of images is available online at [http://location-collective.co.uk/location-search.h...]. Production companies looking for locations can browse The Collective's online location library free at http://www.location-collective.co.uk or call 0207 284 8901 for further information. Owners interested in adding their properties to the library can find more information on the website. Press Release Distribution By PressReleasePoint
