HoxtonLab provides high-quality production and fixing services to all sizes of media businesses.
The media and content delivery sector engages with HoxtonLab to “fill-the-gap” of services which studios often find difficult to provide. Most projects are delivered in European countries including Italy, Spain, France, Germany and Bulgaria where it is often uneconomic for a studio to set up a full and expensive production team.
Hoxtonlab’s niche is in helping British, American and international studios film in European countries and vice- versa; assisting Italian or other European film companies to work in the UK. The scope of delivery is vast and includes broadcast commercials, corporate videos, television dramas, documentaries and feature films.
In addition to HoxtonLab’s own team it works with an extended network of local professionals with trusted staff throughout the major European cities and countries.
HoxtonLab knows how to quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively deal with local film commissions; speedily resolve unexpected issues arising on location; obtain local rentals without deposits; and resole local language or working practices. These issues may sound mundane in a studio’s home country, though when in an alien country they can lead to significant delays and cost overruns.
In short, HoxtonLab is a “problem solver” providing close assistance and support for its customers in all countries throughout Europe, and those international countries who have a European language base
