Netflix’s ‘Everything Now’ captures Parkland Walk in a brilliant drone shot.

Islington, one of London’s most vibrant boroughs, has once again proven its mettle as a film-friendly location. This time, it played host to the recently released Netflix hit “Everything Now,” a production that showcased the borough’s charm and versatility. One of the unique camera angles was its aerial shots of Parkland Walk, a moment captured using a drone.

Before diving into the technically challenging shot, let’s offer a quick synopsis of “Everything Now.” The witty teen drama follows Mia Polanco, who is released from hospital after a lengthy battle with anorexia and thrust back into the world of sixth form.

This abandoned railway line turned lush greenway is nestled in the heart of Islington, offering a serene escape from the urban bustle. The drone shot provided a breathtaking view of this idyllic stretch of parkland with the show’s cinematographers capturing the park and general areas beauty from a fresh perspective.

The successful filming of “Everything Now” in Islington is a testament to the borough’s rich cinematic history, and it’s no wonder why it continues to be a magnet for filmmakers. The diverse and dynamic neighborhoods, historic landmarks, and the strong community spirit make Islington a versatile canvas for any production.

An essential factor that ensured the success of “Everything Now” was the experienced locations team. The Islington Film Office works closely with the council to ensure that any production receives all the  necessary permits, logistical support and permissions. This collaboration between the creative minds behind the show and the local authorities made for a smooth and efficient filming process, turning the borough into an integral character in the story.
