Long & Wide Corridors

September 7, 2021 | What we do

Directors love to film in these liminal spaces, as they can be a conduit for dramatic tension and depth on the screen. They also look great on camera, and are useful for walk and talk scenes. Bonus points for very historic or very modern décor, as productions often love a dramatic statement to tell the story in the background of the action. Wide corridors are often sought after to make use of as hospital sets and are surprisingly hard to find!

Almost every British drama that airs today features sequences in police stations or hospitals, and walk and talk scenes are a crucial part of building the suspense.

Part of the responsibility of a good location agency is to respond to a production brief not just with exact examples of what they’ve asked for, but also variations that could be made to ‘double’ for the location required.
