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. However 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.
WE PLANT TREES WITH EVERY BOOKING
There is more to consider that just the price and we want our studio to be green in more ways than one and we want to reduce our carbon footprint.
If you want to use the latest low power, state of the art LED studio lighting and have a low carbon footprint then we are the studio for you.
Our tree planting programme offsets our carbon use. Reducing plastics is also important, so we no longer have any plastic bottles in the studio and provide you with a branded iconic metal drink container. Simply pick who you want to be for the day, Julia Roberts or Arnie or a host of others. It’s a bit of fun but also means no plastic bottles.
There is also free transport from the local Mortimer rail station to reduce personal transport.
For multiple day bookings discounts are available.
Please call for availability and booking information.
We include lighting and setup in our prices. Call or email us for the latest prices or offers.
Saturday rates are 1.5x and Sunday rates 2x
These rates are for studio hire only. And are for the time between entering and leaving the studio. Please be mindful of timings as there are charges for operating outside of our studio rated hours.
Depending on our shooting schedule it’s not always possible to offer half day bookings.
