Filmbase.uk has been set up by members of the Art and Set Dec departments, to provide a central resource for crew working on film and TV projects in the UK.

We are currently only listing Art Department, Set Decoration and Drapes members, but may expand to include other departments soon.

Filmbase is based on the hugely successful Graphics Union, which over the last few years has grown to list almost 300 graphic designers working in the UK film and TV industry. After seeing the success of the Graphics Union, a number of Set Decoration members, who had joined together to form Set Dec United, approached the same team who had built up the Graphics Union, and proposed a collaboration on a website specifically for Art Department and Set Decoration. 
The result is Filmbase.uk, which has been rapidly growing since it's official launch in September 2020. 


The primary aims of Filmbase.uk are the following:

  • To make it easier for Art and Set Decoration members to find jobs

  • To make it easier for employers across the department to find a diverse and talented crew

  • To give crew who are new to the industry, a point of contact to encourage diversity and the exploration of new talent. 

  • To encourage Art and Set Decoration members to discuss issues such as rates and deal, in order to strengthen the departments. 

  • To inform members on important departmental issues, such as Bectu campaigns.

The collaborators of the site have strong links with Bectu, and frequently post information on the forums to increase awareness of the work done by the Bectu Art Department branch. 

The juniors' forum is moderated by more experienced members, who offer junior members advice on issues.
