Film Birmingham, an initiative for recruitment and support of film and other media projects in the greater Birmingham region, has been established under the umbrella of Create Birmingham. Intended as a one-stop shop for production needs in and around Birmingham, this site will contain information on state incentives, databases for locations and crew, lists of local production resources, and more.
As a member of the North-Central Alabama crew community, we are happy to share with you that we now have an arrangement for shared databases with the Alabama Film Office and are currently engaged in a thorough update of North-Central region information available in both the Location and Crew databases. In an effort to make the Crew database as robust and current as possible, we are asking everyone entered in the Crew database to please review and update your entry.
If you are a Crew Member or Support Service Provider in Alabama and want to register and create a listing on Reel-Scout, you can do that today.
Please remember that the entry form provides multiple opportunities for you to represent yourself in the best possible light. You can attach a resume, link to your website and other samples of your work, provide comments about special skills, etc.
You may also have multiple opportunities to be listed within the Film Birmingham site. As you know, you can be listed within the Crew database. However, if you have a production company or other business enterprise that offers additional support for production, you can also list that enterprise under Resources.
As the only agency in the Greater Birmingham area focused exclusively on economic development for the creative sector, Create Birmingham hopes that Film Birmingham will be a valuable tool for the wonderful talent that exists in our area.
We look forward to working together to help put you, your business, Birmingham, and Alabama in the strongest possible position for both local and incoming production opportunities.
Please contact Jessica Moody, Programs Manager at Create Birmingham, with any questions.
