testimonials

Having hired several locations through Area 4 over the past year it was quickly evident they have a strong understanding of both the filming process and the contractual process culminating in a successful shoot on each occasion. With a wide and growing range of excellent locations & production office space I look forward to further hires in the near future

Nick Marshall

Supervising Location Manager - ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’

This was our first experience of generating short term income from the film industry. Area 4 delivered a major ITV production which generated a substantial income for us in a warehouse which would have otherwise sat empty. We were very impressed with their professionalism and how efficient they made the entire process throughout.

Lucinda Lee-Bapty

Chief Operating Officer BYM CAPITAL

Area4 helped us find the perfect working space for our production and made it a smooth process. They have a good understanding of how productions work, the access requirements and the space and parking we often need, especially in this rare situation of working around new Covid prevention systems also.

The negotiation process has been very transparent, responsive and they have really helped support our needs and made the move in process a smooth one.

Donna Mabey

Line Producer, Number 9 Films

I have been impressed with both Andrew and Josh’s professional, realistic and honest approach and it has been a pleasure dealing with them and the team in my first experience of bringing filming income to my property.

Sam Berg

Director, S2 Estates

Area 4 were an absolute pleasure to work with. They allowed us to generate income on vacant space and Josh went above and beyond to assist with all site logistics. We would be very happy to work with Area4 again.

Rebecca Hore

Asset Manager - Mapeley Estates    

Sam and his team always endeavour to go above and beyond. They work hard to ensure that your shoot runs smoothly and provide excellent facilities with a positive attitude. Any request is met with a smile and a can-do mentality. It’s no surprise that Sam has a loyal following of users and a growing base of clients. I am always delighted to recommend Sam to any production!
