FIFTIES CARS WANTED FOR FILMING – CAN YOU HELP?

FIFTIES CARS WANTED FOR FILMING – CAN YOU HELP?

Posted by Glenn Rowswell on 9th May 2018

Would you like to earn a bit of money with your classic and enjoy an interesting few days – or longer as part of the deal? Granchester, the popular ITV Series starring James Norton as Church of England village priest Sidney Chambers and Robson Green as ‘Geordie’ Keating, his police inspector sidekick, is coming back to our screens for a fourth series.

Filming starts in June, taking place in Granchester village and nearby Cambridge, and the production company are looking for 1950s cars to use in the production.

The fourth series is set in 1956, so cars that would have been seen in a typical English village at that time are needed, and obviously the nearer to 1956 the car is, the better condition it needs to be in.

Production companies pay by the day for cars that are used – even if just parked – and owners are generally encouraged to attend filming, especially if a car is to be used for moving scenes.

ELS Action – a specialist supplier of vehicles for film and TV work – has been contracted to supply cars – though the ultimate decision on which are used and how is down to the production company’s Art Director. Anyone with a car that may be suitable, and who is able to make it available in South Cambridgeshire in June and July can find out more by emailing ELS Action for further details.
