Filming permits

Please note Film Hampshire does not issue/deal with permits/permissions, filming agreements or risk assessments. Permissions normally organised by the relevant district or city council or property owner.

From start to finish whilst prepping and filming at Blackbushe Airport for Millennium Films “Criminal,” - Film Hampshire was an incredibly useful tool in gaining permissions and putting me in touch with the relevant organisations. Thank you for making the process so easy and efficient.
