WE’VE JUST UPGRADED OUR LIGHTING. YOU CAN NOW SHOOT TUNGSTEN, DAYLIGHT OR ANY OTHER COLOUR ON THE SPECTRUM

Thames valleys premier studio

Fleetwood Film studios is nestled on the Hampshire / Berkshire borders, within easy reach of London, the M4 and M3 motorways – an attractive and easily accessible alternative to London based studios.

OUR GREEN INITIATIVES

Our studio is green.  We use the latest low power, state of the art LED lighting and we offset carbon by planting trees. Soon we will move to a green energy supplier and become carbon positive.

5.4 tonnes of carbon offset since 1st June 2022
that’s the same as driving 14,050 miles in a standard car

We are pre-lit for video shoots and our air conditioned studio, is over 1000 sq ft, with a 510 sq ft shoot space which includes a full controllable lighting grid with the latest RGBWW Soft Panels – Aputure Nova P600c and P300c and LED fixtures. The Infinity cove overhead grid is 3m from floor to grid and up to 4.5m in blackout area and will light  classic pure white, black cyclorama and green screen.   Our lighting is capable of shooting Tungsten 3200K, daylight (up to 10000K) or any other colour on the RGB spectrum and is easily controlled from iPad with many pre set lighting options.

We have a comfortable client conference area to relax or meet in with plenty of extra seating (and studio viewing screens),  edit suite and gallery AV room, and hot desk. A fully stocked kitchen (with as much free tea, coffee and bottles water as you can drink during your shoot), and a dedicated make up and dressing room. 

The studio is designed for anyone looking to make professional video for TV, corporate or the web. It is generally available as a dry hire facility, but we can also assist you with crew and production at the studio should you require it. Please just ask.

By rail…  Reading is 10 minutes away and Basingstoke just 15 minutes. A collection service is available too from Mortimer station and we have lots of free parking.

GREEN SCREEN STUDIO

We have a 3m high large width studio green screen which allow for shooting full height talent on green as it also includes the floor area. It’s pre-lit with overhead RGBWW Aputure soft panels designed for video shooting. We also have additional floor lighting available and flash kits for photography.

One of our most useful pieces of green screen kit is our green treadmill which allows you to have people running or walking on green screen too and we also have a turntable that can be green or white.

WHITE INFINITY COVE OR BLACKOUT
Our overhead grid lights our large infinity cove, normally painted white, and the studio can be reversed in 5 minutes to allow you to shoot in complete blackout or turn green. Our heavy theatre drapes and studio lighting grid can be set up in numerous ways to get the shot you are after and our large load doors means you can back a van right up to the studio floor if you need to.
LIVE STREAMING

You may wish to use our studio for steaming services. If you don’t already have it, we have equipment on site to allow you to stream along with vision mix capabilities for multiple cameras and live keying and graphics. We have a primary and secondary internet service with failover.

You can provide all the streaming services yourselves and just use our internet, or alternatively we can provide you with a live streaming studio solution or specific pieces of kit that you may need to stream.

Overhead lighting grid containing  Aputure Nova P300C and P600C RGBWW soft panels and Aputure Light Storm fixtures (3200K or 5600K COB lights) – Some of our studio panels are on pantographs and are moveable around the studio grid.   We also have 2 Aputure Nova P300C panels as moveable floor lighting.   See our lighting section for more information and layout.

The studio is sound dampened and proofed, and a room in a room.  We are not on a train line, have a tube line or are on a flight path.  We’re often asked how good is your sound?.  The answer is very good.  It’s not a perfect anechoic chamber, no studio is. But you will not hear any bounce off the walls.

Load balanced routing with primary and secondary internet connection as backup.  Dedicated 40mbps up and down on primary ISP and 20mbps on secondary ISP. For streaming you will be provided with a dedicated ethernet connection.

Free WiFi for crew and talent.

Studio is 6m wide to the cove curve and 9m deep and can be shot in either direction.  Height is between 3m and 4.5m in blackout area to grid.  Full length body shots can easily be taken on white, blackout or greenscreen.

Studio meeting area is 50m sq with a large meeting table (whiteboard) and sofas.  There is a kitchen and makeup room. We have a separate office space that is for our use but can help if you need to print out documents.

The studio and meeting area is air conditioned.

An additional edit suite and gallery which we use for multicam and streaming is available and is hired separately to the main studio.

If you require additional cameras, crew, or kit (ie for streaming or recording or vision mixing) then we can help. Please see our kit list section or give us a call.
