The London Horror Society is delighted to announce the launch of a brand-new feature inside our LHS Pro service: The LHS Pro Location Portal.
We have learnt first-hand from our members that trying to find suitable locations for a project one of the most time-consuming and expensive parts of the production process.
Firstly, the fees for hiring a location through an agency or local authority can be incredibly high. It’s not unheard of for the costs to run into the thousands of pounds for just a single day’s hire. So filmmakers and producers can be quickly be priced out of even the cheapest of options — especially so when working with small budgets.
This often means that the best option is to head to the common short-term rental websites to try and find their perfect spot. And while this can often work out fine, you can spend hours trawling through pages and pages of properties, only to find out that they’re not suitable for your project, or worse — the owners won’t even entertain film crews at all!
And that’s precisely why we’ve created the LHS Pro Location Portal!
Inside LHS Pro, we’re always looking for new ways to make creating new projects easier. From hooking you up with your fellow creators and introducing you to our preferred partners, all the way to helping you develop your industry knowledge by hosting expert Q&A’s.
And for the past few months, we’ve been hard at work in the background, building a brand-new tool to make hunting for suitable locations both easier and cheaper too! And we’re delighted to say that it has finally been unveiled to LHS Pro members.
- The Location Portal currently contains a hand-picked selection of around 100 residential and studio locations from all over the country, that are all listed on property rental websites — with even more coming soon.
- But crucially, each one has been pre-qualified for use by film crews, and had its key features highlighted (and easily searchable) — making it easy for filmmakers to find exactly what they’re looking for.
- And the best part? They are all listed at regular holiday rental prices — so no hugely-inflated day rates to contend with. Just fantastic locations at a fair fee.
We really hope that the Location Portal will make a meaningful difference to low-budget indie filmmakers and producers everywhere, and are so proud to be able to finally add it to the LHS Pro roster.
