ABOUT FILMBASE 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 list Art Department, Set Decoration, Drapes and Props crew members, but plan to include other departments in the future.

Filmbase is based on the hugely successful Graphics Union, which represents Graphic Designers working in film and TV. 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, which has been rapidly growing since it's official launch in September 2020. We now have over 2000 members and have sent out over 1000 Job Alerts. 


The primary aims of are the following:

  • To make it easier for Art, Set Decoration and Props Department crew to find jobs

  • To make it easier for employers across the departments 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, working practices and crew welfare, in order to strengthen the departments. 

  • To inform members on important departmental issues, such as union campaigns and industry events.

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. 

Please follow the links to the departments below to see the department pages.

Graphics roles are listed on the Graphics Union website.
