Our Values

We operate with honesty and integrity, and are dedicated to going above and beyond to deliver an exceptional security service.

We act as a valuable member of your team, knowing where and how to provide support to create a safe and secure location that keeps productions running smoothly.

We are a diverse family of security experts whose years of experience together has built a high level of respect, trust and care towards everyone we work with.

“Since it’s creation Movie Guard has been the only on site security team I use. We manage commercial film shoots where the turn around from “green lit” to the shoot is narrow, the expectations remain high and as a result preparation time is squeezed. This means that all elements of the Location’s Departments operation need to be effective and adaptable. Movie Guard has, for me, become one of the linch pins in my projects. It is only through consistently delivering smooth shoot days on great locations that our company has thrived.”

“Luckily for me I was introduced to Movie Guard early on in my career in Locations. Gavin and his team always go the extra mile to provide reliable security to shoots. The leadmen have years of experience and can be relied on to manage complicated shoots. On top of that Producers and members of crew regularly comment on how polite and helpful the security has been on jobs with MovieGuard which always helps!”
