The Film Store is a full-service Film and Television rental house with offices in London and Bristol.
Specialising in multicamera solutions and facilitating filming in challenging environments, we routinely devise large-scale bespoke solutions and send equipment all over the world. We work across the production spectrum and facilitate shoots as diverse as long-form documentaries, blue chip natural history, multicamera entertainment and commercial campaigns.
Our services extend beyond equipment hire to crewing, consultation, engineering, training and logistics. Offering a comprehensive range of services to our clients has seen us earn the trust of numerous indies and agencies, as well as becoming preferred suppliers of The BBC and ITV.
Run by Founder Jason McCleave (Managing Director) and Henry Coulam (Commercial Director), Film Store benefits from years of facilities and location experience. Jason has over eighteen years’ experience in facilities, technical supervising, engineering and was one of the first pioneers of drone technology in the UK. Henry, a cameraman by trade, has over a decade of combined field and commercial experience and has held senior positions on some of the UK’s most ambitious productions.
Our clients benefit from additional assistance from Operations Director Corey Webb and Facilities Coordinator Matt Pellant. We all firmly believe that a kit house is only as strong as its kit room. Our commercial operation is supported by a team of excellent in-house trainees and camera assistants who will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that Film Store shoots go as smoothly as possible.
Film Store recently expanded operations and established a fully staffed office in Bristol. Run by Stuart Wyllie, who has been operating in Bristol’s hire market for fifteen years, our Bristol expansion represents our commitment to specialist factual and regional programming. We are currently undertaking work in Africa for the BBC Natural History Unit, as well as numerous projects for independents such as Wall2Wall, Keo and TwentyTwenty.
Our growing client base is a by-product of an authentic passion for television production and broadcast technology.
