of production space
The Big Barn has a large production floor with roller-shutter and inner acoustic baffle doors. It’s 3.8 metres from the floor to the grid, allowing for tall scenery. Several flats for constructing household sets are kept on site with clamps, weights and other handy grip equipment. A makeup and dressing room is adjacent to the studio floor.
for seamless shooting
The cove is painted solid white as standard, but can be painted chroma-green at cost for visual-effects work. The studio itself extends far beyond the cove – we’ve got plenty of space! The overhead scaffold grid is supplied with cold-cathode soft-lights for even illumination. Additional lighting is available.
with a great lunch
As the ‘Big Barn’ name suggests, our studio used to be a genuine farmer’s barn – complete with resident chickens. The former farmyard provides plenty of parking for cast and crew. The nearby farmhouse is now a luxury hotel and restaurant – great for staying-over to get some rest the night before a shoot.
experts on the doorstep
On the other side of the farmyard is our main production centre. You’ll find three edit suites, two sound studios, and a whole production team. It’s just a moment’s walk from the Big Barn – we’re always on hand to provide assistance during any dry-hire studio booking. Of course, we could take care of your post-production too…
