The U.K. is one of the world’s foremost production hubs, even rivaling California. This results from the country’s rich theater, film and television traditions; stunning northern vistas; world-class studios such as Pinewood and Shepperton; a wealth of skilled above- and below-the-line talent; and, perhaps most of all, from generous public subsidies: Qualifying productions can receive a hefty 25% cash rebate.
