Hampshire attracts Les Miserables and World War Z for productive 2012

Hampshire in southern England attracted major features including Les Miserables and Brad Pitt’s World War Z through the course of 2012. Total production spending came to around GBP3 million for the year.

Councillor Ray Ellis is with Hampshire County Council, which encompasses Film Hampshire: “I’m encouraged that we attracted GBP3 million to Hampshire last year from the film industry. Among Hampshire's great attractions are its outstanding historic buildings and stunning landscapes, which are in much demand.

“TV credits include the BBC’s Wartime Farm on Manor Farm and The Fixer, and ITV’s Endeavour, Miss Marple and Dom Joly’s Fool Britannia. We are hoping that 2013 will be even more successful.”

Tom Hooper's Les Miserables (above) filmed at locations including Portsmouth Naval Base and Winchester College. The production was also the first to film at Pinewood's new Richard Attenborough Stage, before the new facility was officially opened.
