Have you ever wondered how films pull off spectacular stunts and scenes on the streets of London? In this episode of Filmmaking Framed, we sit down with Steve Dixon, former head of London's Metropolitan Police Film Unit. Steve shares insider stories of coordinating with productions like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mission: Impossible, and offers valuable advice for filmmakers from short films up to Hollywood features, on how to work safely and legally with police when shooting in public spaces. From navigating drones to filming with replica firearms, Steve's unique perspective is a must-listen for anyone in the industry.

Key Lessons

• Understanding and Respecting Legal Requirements: Be aware of and comply with all legal requirements, especially when using potentially concerning elements like firearms, police uniforms, and drones, by obtaining necessary permissions from local police.

• Properly Manage Traffic During Filming: When filming on public roads, never allow untrained crew members to stop or direct traffic. Use professional traffic management personnel who have the necessary training and permissions to ensure safety and compliance with the law.

• Effective Communication, Planning, and Safety: Ensure thorough planning and clear communication with all relevant parties, including local authorities and residents, to prevent misunderstandings and disruptions. Always prioritize safety by conducting proper risk assessments, understanding the environment, and avoiding any actions that could endanger the crew, cast, or public.
