So you are one of the lucky ones who actually gets to be involved in making an advertising commercial. It's exciting but there is a lot to know and a lot to plan for.

We have a specialist on our team who is waiting to help you.

You may have a question about script clearance, about casting children in school time, about insurances or about Equity.

  • Do I need permission to include famous buildings in my commercial (at home and overseas)
  • How many hours can a 12-year-old girl work on set?
  • What is a sponsorship licence and why do I need one to bring non-EU talent into the UK?
  • I am filming goldfish in a bowl - do I need a vet on set?
  • What paperwork do I need to move a herd of cattle from Scotland to Essex?
  • I am filming in a station. Do I need release forms from the public? What should I do?

All you have to do is get in touch with Kim Knowlton.

I have found Kim’s input invaluable in this process, the fact that I have been able to get through to her easily and quickly is of massive importance and the advice given has been a Godsend. I am relatively new to TV production and Kim has guided me through what appeared at first to me a mine field of paperwork, Kim has supported and suggested so many things that I feel more confident in this process. I value and respect Kim’s advice and will continue to seek this for as long as she will put up with me.
