New Crew Announcements

About Us

Established in 2009, Bristol Crew was created to fill a gap in the market between diary services and large crew databases.

Each member is hand-picked, interviewed and verified by site manager Sarah so you can be assured that their CVs are genuine and their attitude and professionalism is second to none.

Members are encouraged to share work, skills and participate in the mentoring of less experienced crew in their department. This means we're a strong and supportive team of freelancers with excellent connections and big ambitions to excel in our chosen fields.

Every crew profile has all the contact details you need to book directly.

For larger, bespoke teams of crew contact sarah@bristolcrew.co.uk for advice and recommendations.

How to join

Bristol Crew is a boutique database with limited space in each department. Membership is by invitation or recommendation only with application interviews taking place quarterly. There is currently a waiting list for both DOPs and Lighting Camera operators.
