We have now completed our filming on The Secret Service. It was an amazing experience and over 140 of our guys n girls worked on the film. Thank you all for your hard work.


"MFS provided an excellent service. The military know how and the discipline of the men helped create a great sequence. They coped with all our demands and late changes with efficiency and good humour. A much needed resource for the British FIlm Industry."

David Reid and Adam Bohling, Producer, "The Secret Service"

"I just wanted to thank you so much for the work you did on "World War Z". The advice you gave on the aircraft carrier was extremely important to us and gave us the realism that we wanted. Your leadership and knowledge of proper military procedure helped us organize a shoot of a deck full of civilians, aircraft and crew; and you answered all my myriad of questions! Working with you was a pleasure."

Academy Award Winner John Nelson, Senior Visual Effects Supervisor, "World War Z"

"..very well organised and energetic and left no stone unturned in getting us access to locations, no matter how tricky. An excellent military advisor and a great addition to our team. When we were working in very difficult conditions in remote locations he was tireless in getting us what we needed."

Susanna White, Director (Generation Kill, Nanny McPhee and The Big Bang)

"Andy Buckley and Military Film Services were a pleasure to work with, our production of 'I AM SOLDIER' would not be the same without their expertise, experience and continuing help while filming."

Ben Jacques, Line Producer, "I Am Soldier"

"Just to say a really really big thank you for sorting everything out for the shoot on Saturday. The guys looked great and I cannot wait to get into the edit today to see the footage. Very best wishes and many many thanks again."

Rachael Naughton, ChristieHQ

Welcome to MFS

Military Film Services provides complete realism to any film and television production via our specialist military extras/background artists and trainers, all of whom have substantial operational experience. We have worked on all scales of productions from low budget independent shorts to national television campaigns and major Hollywood features.

MFS is made up of highly experienced, ex-military personnel who have served on multiple operations worldwide. Our training and operational experience can be translated directly into authenticity and realism for your production.

Furthermore, not only do we have the military experience to give your film or program that authentic look and feel, our extensive experience of working on film and television at all levels means we also have a sound understanding of the production process; this allows us to become part of your creative team rather than just qualified outsiders.
