The Motion Picture Production industry covers all businesses that produce films in the United Kingdom. These can be anything from big budget feature films down to advertising films and training films. The industry is characterised by significant volatility in revenue growth, which is largely influenced by the pattern and size of investments in the production of feature films in the United Kingdom. Other ongoing factors that can have an impact on the success of industry operators are the exchange rate between the US dollar and the pound, film tax incentives and credit availability. Developments in film production and creative developments worldwide also affect the industry.
Companies in this industry produce feature motion pictures. Activities may be carried out solely by a UK studio or producer or in conjunction with international studios as part of a co-production agreement. This industry excludes post-production activities such as editing, adding sound, subtitling, titling and adding special effects (IBISWorld report J59.120).
