Backyard Studios in west London add one other 65,000 sq. ft


The new west London studio complex, Garden Studios, has been expanded by an additional 65,000 square feet for a total of 127,000 square feet of studio space, more than double the original location.

The new location, The Orchid Production Village, will be available next month with eleven serviced offices, two shooting rooms (totaling 40,000 square feet) and a 16,000 square foot workshop.

This is in addition to the already existing three sound stages, three shooting rooms, four large fully equipped production offices and workshop units.

Garden Studios’ 4,800 square foot virtual production stage, powered by the Unreal Engine, is also now operational.

Studio Manager Marnie Keeling said: “We are delighted to be expanding our location, which will allow us to serve a wider range of clients and offer options from recording rooms, workshop and production offices to sound stages. Garden Studios intends to make an industry impact through innovation, technology and world-class soundstage. Additionally, our virtual production stage allows you to shoot anywhere in the world from the comfort of our studio. We are excited to support future filmmaking, traditional and virtual.”

Garden Studios Founder and CEO Thomas Hoegh said: “The increasing popularity of the UK as a film location means expanding our studio capacity is now more important than ever. We can accommodate productions of all sizes in our 127,000 square foot sound stages, workshops and fully equipped production offices. While the virtual production stage allows you to shoot anywhere in the world from the comfort of our London studio. We look forward to welcoming productions and seeing the innovative creations they bring forth.”

Mark Pilborough-Skinner, Virtual Production Supervisor, said, “Virtual production is the natural successor to green screen and will be a staple of the film industry for years to come. We’ve worked incredibly hard – with some of the best minds in the industry – to create a studio with impeccable workflow and endless possibilities.”
