Promoting the New Forest as a Location for Film & TV

18 July, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The New Forest has much to offer filmmakers from the opulence of Somerley House to the industrial backdrops of the Hythe chemical plant with hundreds of woodland, urban and seaside landscapes in between; the region has already been the backdrop to many productions, doubling for Miami in the soon-to-be released The Infiltrator, Sherwood Forest in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Fawley Power Station doubling as a Moroccan Power Plant for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.  Television and film productions are constantly looking for new and interesting properties/land to use as film locations – and they will pay to use yours!
