Small-scale filming agreements

Small-scale filming agreements (SSFA)

Productions wanting to film at Network Rail stations with crews of five persons or less should apply using our small-scale filming agreement (SSFA) form, downloadable below.  Productions wanting to film within five working days - regardless of size - must also apply using the form(s) below, reducing crew numbers where necessary.

SSFAs are quicker, simpler, are usually the cheapest option (see fees*) and allow for the following equipment to be considered:

  • hand-held camera
  • monopod
  • tripod
  • steadicam
  • camera slider (1mtr max)
  • hand-held or radio microphones (not boom poles)
  • reflector (1.2mtr2 max; not Silver/Gold/Green/Red)
  • wireless monitor

Forms need to be filled out electronically (not handwritten) and sent to, along with a valid Public Liability Insurance certificate (with a minimum indemnity of £5m) and any other relevant documents.

PLEASE NOTE: * The filming fee is non-refundable if withdrawn or cancelled by applicant within five working days of shoot.  Productions wishing to shoot within three working-days are advised to contact us prior to applying.
