    Hello,

    Let me introduce myself, I'm Alex and I am a producer at Solent University in Southampton. I'm producing a 8-min short documentary with a possibility to make into a series, about Urbexing. I was wondering if anyone could help me in finding some good locations to film at, preferably in the Southampton/Portsmouth area however would be willing to travel further if the location's good.

    Any ideas? I've heard that Bargate is supposedly quite good, as is NY2 nightclub and the place next door to Asgard. Any leads on those would be fantastic as well.

    Any help appreciated, and of course credit given in the documentary

    Many Thanks

    Alex Robertson,
    Producer, Spitfire Productions

    Oh dear, do me a favour Alex, cast your mind way, way, back to when you joined this forum (16.21 Hrs today)

    You were specifically asked to read the FAQs.... the exact wording was:

    If you had - then you would be in a better position to understand why this thread is going to go down like the proverbial lead balloon.

    We get about a half dozen such requests per week - with every film, media, arts, humanities, photography student rocking up here and thinking they have discovered something new to make a film about.

    Basic research is key to any endevour - and wanting to be a film maker is no exception - if you are too lazy to research the FAQs, the ones we wrote for you, pointed you to before joining, and which specifically cover film makers - then what hope for a well researched, well planned film???

    Maybe being in the media 'edited highlights' work better, so here's an edited highlight from the FAQs;

    Sorry if that sounds a bit 'terse' - but believe me - when you have seen as many of these requests as we have - it all gets very wearing....

    Probably why he called it 'urbexing' too.

    Alex - 'Urbex' is a word like 'doggie' 'choo-choo train' or 'poo-poo' - people know what you mean by it - but are unlikely to use it in daily conversation :rolleyes:
