The geographic distribution of turnover is given by the location of the company, not its local units, so a London concentration may be overstated for companies such as cinema chains that have local units around the UK. The overall total differs from that in Table 20.3 as it excludes figures for video production and distribution. Percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding. 20.4 Leading film production companies in the UK Drawing on the BFI Research and Statistics Unit’s production database and public information, Table 20.10 presents the production companies involved in the most productions in the UK over the three-year period 2011 to 2013. Working Title Films came top of the list with 13 films with a combined budget of £249 million (equivalent to a mean budget per film of £19 million), followed by Press On Features also with 13 films (combined budget of £12 million) and Vertigo Films with 11 films (combined budget of £26 million).
