Screen Yorkshire, Northern Film & Media and Northwest Vision + Media have launched an online database showcasing crew, facilities, creative and digital talent from across the North.

The aim is to maximise job opportunities for freelancers working in the production and creative sectors and to provide a one-stop shop for film and TV companies shooting in the North.

The Northern Exposure database holds details of over 3,000 freelance crew, facilities and production companies based across the North of England.

Tom Harvey, Chief Executive of Northern Film & Media, said: “The Northern Exposure website is a great example of what we can achieve in the North when we pool our collective resource and talent.”
