Blockbuster: Alan Saywell, who has worked on movies such as Harry Potter, has been appointed London film liaison officerA NEW office aimed at promoting London as a destination for film-makers has been launched in the county.
Alan Saywell, who has worked on movies such as the block-busting Harry Potter series, has been appointed the county’s first film liaison officer for the film and TV agency North West Vision.
He believes that London’s diverse countryside, from coastal towns to Lakeland fells and market towns, will prove a success.
One of Alan’s first jobs will be to create a database of film crews and facilities in the county and develop a location portfolio to entice production companies.
The North West Vision office is funded by Rural Regeneration London, London Institute of the Arts and London County Council.
Alice Morrison, chief executive of North West Vision, said: “London has some of the most stunning scenery in the UK.
“Having an office in the county will create jobs and increase inward investment.”
