Examination Schools transformed into filming venue for new production!

Case studies, News

The Examination Schools and Sheldonian Theatre were exclusively hired for the cast and crew of a new production filmed in the heart of the city at the end of 2021 and most recently in February. While nearby streets were brought to life with piles of fake snow, old-fashioned telephone boxes, street lamps, as well as period cars, the Examination Schools provided a private haven just a short walk away from the buzz on the streets for the cast and production crew to work and rest.

“Having exclusive use of the Examination Schools meant that we were able to utilise all the different versatile spaces and have all the departments under one roof: Principle Cast Costume and Make-Up, Cast Greenrooms, Crowd changing (for up to 150 people per day), Main and 2nd Unit Production Offices, Covid Department, a Locations Office, and the Catering. This made for a much more efficient shoot being able to have everything in one place.

At all times throughout our dealings with the Examination Schools, from beginning to end, the staff were professional and supportive and were never phased by the scale of our demands. They took everything in their stride and were willing to help and find solutions every step of the way to our ever-increasing demands!

I look forward to returning soon with another project.”
