Liverpool Film & Television – A Producers Dream Come True

The Liverpool Film Office cites Liverpool as a destination that produced 16 major “high-quality” productions in 2022 that were seen everywhere.

They include, Peaky Blinders S6, The Responder, Anne, The Ipcress File, The Batman, to name a few. Liverpool possesses an exceptional infrastructure and diversity of talent that draws producers the world over to its shores. The Liverpool Film Office is a hub for connecting all aspects of filming: permission, funding, locations, space, crew, and much more. Of the top 20 film releases of 2022 in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland there were six U.K./U.S.A. feature films, which included The Batman produced by Warner Bros/DC Films. According to the British Film Institute, The Batman, partially filmed in Liverpool, was one of two major films that drove ticket sales in the first quarter of 2022.

The Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and its partner boomerang carnets® UK provide ATA Carnets for productions filmed and produced across international borders. The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document used for temporarily exported merchandise, goods, or equipment and allows you to clear Customs import-duty and -tax free into 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year. ATA Carnets are standard practice in the industry, given the value of equipment moving into and out of countries for shoots. Typically, camera bodies, lenses, tripods, lighting equipment, drones/UAVs, monitors, hard drives/storage, computers, batteries, set pieces/props, apparel/costumes, and more are listed on an ATA Carnet. Film/TV, Media/News, Photographers, TV Sports Coverage save a fortune by avoiding import duty and taxes on international assignments, productions, and events.

Though the U.K. film and television sector generates billions of pounds into the U.K. economy, ALL levels of production utilize ATA Carnets. The LCC’s partner, boomerang carnets Media, is the only ATA Carnet provider with offices in the U.K. and the U.S. offering unchallenged convenience for the industry. Fox News Channel, North Six, Prime Cut Production, Video Equipment Rental, Broadcast Sports Int’l, 2D Photo Productions, ABC News, Nick Hall Photography, The Mill Group, Casual Films, Quite Frankly Productions, The Switch, Tempt LLC, Lonely Planet & 641 Productions LLC have taken advantage of the unique, “two countries” benefit and saved money and time.
