Calderdale Council has launched a new database which allows property owners in the borough to nominate their home or business as a potential filming location.
People with a property they want to promote simply need to fill out a form on the website and include a number of images.
According to Film Calderdale, producers and filmmakers are looking for all kinds of filming locations, from apartments and townhouses to big houses, farms, empty land and mills.
Registering a property on the database is free and there is no obligation to participate in any future filming.
If a property is of interest to a project, a scout would visit the location to ensure that it matches the director’s vision.
If a property is selected for filming, the payout tends to vary depending on production and filming disruption.
According to the council, demand for locations in the borough is increasing following the successful filming of a number of projects, including Gentleman Jack, The Gallows Pole and Marvel’s Secret Invasion.
Councilor Jane Scullion, a member of Calderdale’s Council Cabinet for Regeneration and Strategy, said: “Calderdale has a growing reputation as an ideal filming location for film companies.
“We received fantastic feedback on how accommodating we were, going the extra mile to ensure filming went smoothly.
“The resulting productions were a brilliant showcase for the borough and also gave a real boost to our visitor economy.

“Finding the right location is a key part of deciding where to film a production and producers are always on the lookout for suitable filming locations for the cinema.
“Our new Film Calderdale website allows residents or businesses to offer their premises as a potential filming location, providing opportunities for local people and further highlighting the borough’s wide and varied options for filming different types of productions. .”
