The Crown is proud to be part of Elstree Studios’ rich tradition of British film and television production. It’s no wonder they have a century of filmmaking under their belt, the team at Elstree are second to none. They always go above and beyond to help us try and achieve the impossible everyday.
I’ve worked at Elstree on and off from the start of my career across a number of different productions and slowly made my way around all of their studios! Every time I return with a production I feel like I’m coming home. They recently played host to the Celebrity Karaoke Club and Karaoke Club Drag Edition in one of the George Lucas stages. We sure did make the most of the massive space filling it with all things glitter, 22 cameras and a purpose built karaoke club! The staff are always a pleasure to work with and can’t do enough to help. I’m looking forward to coming back with another production.
Elstree Studios is a great location for Big Brother. We have a complex technical operation set up within our new Big Brother Village. The Big Brother house is monitored 24 hours a day, and we have more than two live transmissions from the studio every day – 7 days per week.
We have very large audiences for Big Brother and it’s easy for them to get to by public transport. This is also an ideal location for all production and technical staff.
Elstree was an excellent production base for ‘Humans’. We had fantastic offices that were spacious and with good facilities. We were also able to use costume and prop stores on site which made things much easier for those departments. It offers a wide variety of locations that are within easy reach, and also has excellent transport links to central London.
I look forward to going back some time in the future.
We’ve worked at Elstree a number of times on productions of all shapes and sizes, and the team have always been wonderfully accommodating. Even for the smaller, one-day music video setups, Elstree have worked with us to provide the studio to suit our needs.
Having recently visited post-lockdown, it was also very reassuring for our cast and crew to see the solid health measures and precautions in place, helping us to maintain a safe working environment. We look forward to coming back again soon.
Elstree offers fantastic facilities. The team moved here three weeks ago from our office base in North London and it has been seamless.
I am always very happy at Elstree Film Studios. The team at Elstree will always bend over backwards and really try to change things when plans change (which they always do) and I have been so grateful many times for the professional, friendly and flexible approach they have.
There is never ‘we can’t do that’, it is always ‘how can we make it work’ which with the pressures of film making you just need to know that key spaces like the stages will help out if they can. Our offices in the Enigma building were excellent and Elstree allowed me to tailor them to my designs to make them function really efficiently. I’ll be back!
Elstree Studios were fantastic to do business with throughout the production of Harry Brown. Their excellent staff and the seamless service they provided allowed myself, the crew and cast to simply focus on shooting the best film possible. Everything else was taken care of. Given the opportunity, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Elstree Studios again.
