1,200 Square Feet of Production Space
The Barn has a drive-in roller-shutter and inner acoustic baffle doors. It’s 3.8 metres in height from the floor to the grid, and features an impressive shadow-free corner-cove. Unlike many photographic studios, our space is sound-dampened for recording dialogue. The Barn has a range of lighting, C-stands, soft-boxes, poly sheets, gels, sandbags and other standard studio grip equipment in stock. The studio also has a make-up and dressing room.
Great Location, Great Lunches!
As The Barn’s name suggests, the studio used to be a genuine farmyard barn, originally home to hundreds of chickens. The former farmyard now provides plenty of parking for cast and crew; whilst the nearby farmhouse is now a sprawling four-star hotel and leisure club – great for staying-over to get some rest the night before a shoot. The hotel can also lay-on great lunches for us!
Post-Production & Sound Studios
On the other side of the farmyard is our main production centre. There you’ll find three edit suites, two sound studios (with ISDN connectivity), and a whole production team. It’s just a moment’s walk from the The Barn – and of course we’re always on hand to provide assistance during any dry-hire and wet-hire studio booking. Of course, we’d really like to take care of your shooting and post-production requirements too.
Solid Cove For Seamless Shooting
The Barn’s cove is painted solid white as standard, but can be painted chroma-green at extra cost for visual-effects work. The studio itself extends far beyond the cove – we’ve got plenty of space! The overhead scaffold grid (with 3-phase power) is rigged with cold-cathode soft-lights for even illumination. Additional Fluorescent/Tungsten/HMI lighting is available.
