The networking event at Elstree on September 19 will be the eighth in the nationwide programme.

UK support agency Creative England is launching crew and locations databases. The free crew databases will cover all of the English regions.

The organisation has been populating the databases over the past year.

Creative England is set to host its eighth face-to-face networking event for crew at Elstree on September 19.

More than 1,200 professionals in film, TV and digital media have attended events in Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham, Brighton and Sheffield, and further events are due to take place in later in the year.

Crew and facility houses secured work through the crew night at the Sheffield event on an ITV drama currently in pre-production in the Northwest.

Kaye Elliott, Creative England’s head of location and production services, said: “We’re really excited to be able to launch the database at Elstree, which has been the home of so much terrific TV and film production. The crew nights have really taken off as they offer a variety of ways to help people get on and develop their careers. The databases will be an extension of this service, for both those working in crew and facilities and those looking to source crew and locations across England’s regions. We’re all about encouraging TV and film production in the English regions, and with these databases we’ll be able to help with everything from finding crew to hotels and facilities. It’s all part of the one stop shop service we are aiming to provide.”

Creative England opened its doors as a single entity in October 2011. The agency is dedicated to supporting film, TV, games and digital & creative services in the English regions outside London.
