Film London has named David Shepheard as its new inward investment manager, responsible for all activity related to filming in London.

Shepheard joins the inward investment and business development team, headed up Helena Mackenzie and will be in charge of attracting inward investment by promoting London as a world-class production destination, from showcasing the city globally, through to ensuring London remains film friendly and ready to accommodate domestic and international film, television and animation productions.

He will ensure Film London continues to help productions maximise the benefit of UK tax reliefs for film and television.

Shepheard has over 10 years of experience managing productions, most recently as a consultant for various UK media agencies. In 2009 he was recruited to set up the Abu Dhabi Film Commission, where he introduced the Middle East's first and only financial incentive for filming.

The Abu Dhabi Film Commission was the third film and television development agency Shepheard has launched. Before that, Shepheard was head of inward investment and locations at South West Screen. He also launched Screen East when it merged with Eastern Screen, where he was interim chief executive.

Shepheard was the first director of Bristol Film Office. Before entering into investment, Shepheard was an assistant director across features, commercials and television for over four years.
