Welcome to The Movie Lot

Protecting Productions since 1992

The Movie Lot specialise in film and television security, location support, and traffic management for the British entertainment industry.

We have in-depth knowledge of the industry from decades of experience working in it, and our expert reputation is unrivalled. As well as providing the highest level of skill and training with our operatives, we also offer cutting-edge GPS technology, which ensures even the most complex operations are equipped to cover the smallest detail.

Founded in 1992, The Movie Lot are proud to have secured over a thousand productions, ranging from multi-million pound blockbusters, to micro-budget start up projects. With operatives situated throughout the UK, we can mobilise staff at short notice to any area, for any size production.

We are experts in all areas of the entertainment industry, and alongside film, television and media security, we also provide fully trained operatives covering red carpet events, festivals, discreet ‘close protection’ for individuals, and many other services.

Our professional, friendly and customer service focused approach ensures both a happy client as well as a happy workforce. We are highly skilled in de-escalating situations, which leads to fewer incidents and people interacting with our team are more likely to cooperate amenably. We ensure that the public, the crew, and the client feel reassured: we provide minimal disruption and maximum safety for any type of event or production.
