Frequently Asked Questions

CREW BIRMINGHAM is a free site aimed at Film and Television employers and employees. It is a database full of Crew, Facilities and Locations that are all based in and around the Greater Birmingham area. It is the right place for Production Companies to offer PAID work to our local professional crew. We also offer a Fixer service which aims to help all production companies coming here to film.

This Website was born out of the CREW BIRMINGHAM Facebook group. We have had many Film and TV production companies, TV broadcasters, advertising agencies, facility companies and Line Producers use our site successfully.

CREW BIRMINGHAM is free to join and free to use.

The only stipulation is that it is a site for fully paid jobs.

If Crew are contacted and offered below minimum wage jobs they should contact us immediately with the individuals / company’s details. If this happens, and this rule is broken, the company offering the work will be named and shamed for all members to see and to be warned about.

You can search and view pages of individuals and contact them directly via the information they leave. Or you can send us a message as we offer a Fixer service. Just simply send a message to contactus@crewbirmingham.co.uk

You can do this in one of two ways.

1. Claim Your Listing. If your profile is already set up on our website, you need to first create an account, then please contact us letting us know your username and which listing is yours (ideally send us the URL), we can then allocate that listing to your account. You will be notified via email once your listing has been allocated to your account and you can then edit it as you wish. 

2. Create Your Listing. To create a brand new listing you must first create an account and then  follow the instructions here: www.crewbirmingham.co.uk/add-listing/

You will not only get your own website page for self promotion, you will now be more visible to potential employers coming to the area looking for professional Crew.

Yes, we have now developed the ‘New Talent’ section. It works like the main Crew section and can be viewed in the same way by potential employers.
New Talent – 0 – 2 Years experience.
Main Crew – 2+ Years paid work & 4 or more broadcasting credits on their CV or IMDB (not including shorts)

We offer a Fixer service to make things run as smoothly as possible for Production Companies. Simply send an email to contactus@crewbirmingham.co.uk and a member of our team will get back to you.
