5 Great Film Studios for Hire in Londonby HarryPrince, 17 March 2021
Film is the ultimate medium for entertainment and information; moving images, music, sound effects, and dialogue are the best ways to inform and convey emotions.
Pictures and copy are good, of course, we know that. But a well put together film will set you apart from any competitor.
London is known for being a cultural heavyweight. It’s awash with creative spaces and people.
We’ve put together a guide to five great film studios for hire in London. All sizes and styles are catered for. So, whatever you want to film, there’s a venue here for you.
1) Rustic Studio Space with a Chic Character
Welcome to this overwhelming arching space. It’s been converted into a rustic studio space and sports a glowing chic character.
It’s massive glass doors give you the benefit of natural light and lead you out into the heart of Shoreditch. The polished floors are ready for work and are a treat on the eyes. The naked brick arch is a superb vintage touch.
In our business, this is what we’d call a blank canvas venue. Exactly what you want from a film studio. It even has a back of house space that can be used for catering, makeup, or a breakout room.
Additionally, a high-speed Wifi connection, AV equipment, security staff, drinks and catering are at your disposal. And of course, it never hurts to be in fashionable Shoreditch!
2) Elegant White Studio with Tons of Natural Light
Here we have an elegant white studio. It’s a former factory, not that you could tell. The studio has been excellently refurbished and would be perfect for small-scale film productions.
The large double doors are ideal for wheeling in props and equipment for your shoot.
As well as ground-floor loading access, you’ve got on-site car parking and a canteen that can act as the perfect breakout space for refreshments during the day.
It’s located right by the London Docks, a lovely area for a stroll when you need a break.
3) Former Urban Warehouse Studio in Dalston
Welcome to a curious urban warehouse sprinkled with antique trinkets, toys and furniture pieces.
This film shoot venue is in the super cool area of Dalston and offers visitors 7,200m2 of fun and mystery. The venue includes two open spaces, a makeup room, and a kitchen.
It’s optimised and built for photoshoots, filming, and stills. If you love it as we do, you can also use it for receptions, pop-ups, workshops, and brainstorming sessions.
It has a maximum capacity of 220 people, and there are catering options available to keep the crew happy.
4) Industrial Warehouse with a Charming Courtyard
This blank canvas venue is in the hip area of Hoxton. It’s an industrial warehouse with a charming courtyard, just a stone’s throw away from Regents Canal.
Or maybe a lump of coal is more appropriate than stone. Because that’s what its former purpose was: an ex-coal storage facility.
It is very atmospheric. Cinematic, you could even say. Where movie gangsters might meet to talk business, and where you will meet to film something special.
You’ll have a quality lighting and rigging system to assist your production. Opt for catering too!
5) Spectacular Blank Canvas for Large Product Launches
Our final film studio for hire in London is this spectacular blank canvas.
The hall has drive-in access, a built-in lighting truss, and an integrated 13m long infinity wall. All dynamite features for filming.
The elegant staircase and crisp white flooring will put weight behind any message you want to relay to clients and customers.
A terrazzo-floored mezzanine and the arching roof are to die for. The alabaster material gives it a serene vibe that needs to be seen to be believed.
It can easily accommodate up to 230 people over its 300m2, so don’t be afraid to dream big!
