Suffolk stays open for Covid-secure filming



Screen Suffolk is delighted to say that Suffolk is still open for TV and film productions.

They have commissioned a video which details the range of locations and facilities that are available in the county, highlighting the many benefits for visiting productions.


Suffolk based Mark Aaron designed and produced the 3D animation which brings to life many of the iconic locations across the county and highlights the close proximity to London and cost-effective availability of production crew and accommodation.

Director of Screen Suffolk, Karen Everett said, “After lockdown we didn’t know how filming would work. By working in partnership with industry bodies we have ensured that any incoming production adheres to all the current regulations. Since lockdown eased for filming, we’ve had a busy few months with many adverts and TV show’s choosing to film in Suffolk. We anticipate that feature films will return in the New Year as there’s a backlog of projects waiting to restart.”

Jim Horsfield – Operations & Business Development Manager at Screen Suffolk added, “There is a breadth of talent within Suffolk and this film demonstrates the quality of work that can be found in this county. We’ve been impressed with the productions that have filmed in Suffolk since the lockdown was lifted. Small productions are managing within guidelines and larger scale shoots have a dedicated COVID Supervisor who manages the shoot to ensure that it’s safe for the incoming crew and local residents.”

Mark Aaron said, “It’s been a pleasure working with Screen Suffolk on this project. Suffolk has unique and varied film locations and hopefully this project shows that we have a wealth of homegrown creative skills that can rival those found in London or elsewhere.”Mark Aaron
