Our thoughts

We like to think studio one is well thought-out and pleasant to work in. For a studio of this size the additional space is generous and includes two dressing rooms, one large and one small. Both are equipped with showers, toilet facilities and TVs that can also display what’s going on in the studio. In addition to the dressing rooms, there is a client room adjacent to the studio through transparent doors with its own TV, again capable of showing the studio output. This room can also be used as a control room for multi-camera shoots and has a cable duct into the studio.

Studio one boasts very good soundproofing and a silent but powerful ventilation system that keeps it at a comfortable temperature.

The studio has a 3 walled white cyclorama infinity cove, black out drapes that run around the entire cove or, if you’re shooting chromakey green screen, we will rig a drape for you that covers the back wall and most of the floor. The advantage of using drapes as opposed to a green painted studio is that you only want the areas behind your subject to be green. Any green that is out of shot just adds more green spill/ bounce to your subject which degrades the final result. So with drapes you can just fold up the out of shot areas of the drape, reducing any green bounce.

There is a reassuringly wide range of lighting and studio accessories on the premises, including smoke machine, turntables, filters, black wrap, c-stands, grip equipment, and a lot of useful bits and pieces. So even if you’re bringing in your own equipment we can help you out with things you didn’t think you’d need, or that haven’t turned up, even if it’s just a cable.

The hire of the studio includes a minimum of three parking spaces in our secure yard, which gives direct access to the studio space, making getting equipment and sets in and out a breeze. A fully equipped kitchen and dining area accommodates both studios. If you’re unsure if it’s right for your needs please feel free to give us a ring, or even to come down and have a look, we would love to show you around.

Covid 19 Update

We are open for business as TV and Film production has got green light to keep running but have altered the way we work to maintain a safe working environment. As a small but resilient company and we are always happy to tailor our services to your specific requirements.

Here are the procedures and facilities we have put in place.


You must wear a face covering when indoors unless you are a talent in front of the camera but then yo have to keep safe distance.

Studio 2 is now available for full 10-hour day hire only and comes with the the extra room above it as standard to accommodate extra crew numbers. Contact us for more details.

Our studios have fresh air ventilation systems which provide a constant supply of fresh air as opposed to a recirculation system. They are also quiet enough to run whilst recording sound

We have just installed a dual internet system that runs on fast 5G in addition to fibre broadband so that we can offer a very robust internet connection for live video streaming etc.

We can provide a reliable online video stream from the studios so that your client can monitor the shoot remotely

There is remote audio and video monitoring provided from the studio to the client room and both dressing rooms for Studio 1 and to the client room for Studio 2. Studio 1 also have a microphone set up in the green room so that you can communicate remotely via the PA

We have opened a roof garden in addition to the private yard so we can offer clients more outdoor ancillary space
