What we do &
how we do it

UKL is for brands, broadcasters and streamers who want quick and easy access to hard-to-reach locations where they can shoot high-end content without any hassle. Our first-class service comes from years of industry experience, the close relationships we have with all our Location Partners (and the ease of access this allows), and a geniune love of the creative process.

Our story

Born out of the vision of former TV location manager, Nick Jones, UKL’s is a story of passion, fortitude, and imagination. Faced with everything from personal tragedy to global economic instability, UKL has been guided by its core values and supported by a fantastic team to become the go-to location agency for some of the world’s leading brands and broadcasters.

We are in it together

We believe in the triple bottom line: people, profit, planet. We recognise our interdependency and understand that mutual success comes from mutual respect.

02

We are passionate

We are proud of our involvement in the making of great content, and we put our hearts and souls into optimising the conditions in which it is created.

03

We are relevant

We keep up with trends and developments in film, TV and advertising worlds (from aesthetics to sustainability), so that we’re always providing what our clients need and in turn, bringing our location partners bookings.

04

We are progressive

We are constantly exploring ways to improve our offering to both our clients and Location Partners and finding ways to reduce our collective impact on the planet.
