Harvey Edgington & AGM
April 18 @ 10:30 AM£3.00
In 2003 Harvey created the centralised National Trust Film unit allowing filmmakers access to over 250 heritage building 700 miles of coast and 500,000 acres of iconic and often protected landscapes in England Wales and Northern Ireland. Despite strict protocols the unit have successful shot a diverse range of productions including Wolf Hall, Snow White and The Huntsmen, Game of Thrones, Pride and Prejudice (and the Zombie version), Downton and Poldark. The Trust has 3 crews a day on its land.
Previously he worked for Film London coordinating shoots such as Tomorrow Never Dies (the Thames boat chase), 101 Dalmatians and Spooks. Before that he was London’s first full time film officer having set up a Film Unit at Greenwich dealing with Patriot Games, Secret Agent, Nil by Mouth and hundreds more.
Harvey’s talk will be how the Trust manages filming and how they convert the exposure to generate visitors and therefore income.
