Galleon Studios is just a few miles outside Manchester city centre. 2 minutes off the M62 motorway, it is easily accessible from all directions in the north west.
Galleon Studios is part of Galleon Productions; a video production company founded in 2003. As a video production company, rather than a photographer, the hire studios was built with an eye for the moving image. As such we have to hand the latest 4k, HD cameras, motion control rigs, track, dollies, a staggering array of microphones and the best lighting around. It’s all here for clients to use on their productions in the same way Galleon Production use it on their own.
The space comprises of 2 main studios, a chill out area and post production offices. There is also a make up room, a changing room, a kitchen, 2 toilets with shower. Basically all you need for a stress free filming day.
The main studio is the infinity cove studio. Built with no visible join between the floor and wall the infinity cove is used for both green screen and white screen productions (contact us for painting fees for white screen). The lack of horizon line lends itself to video productions where the viewer needs no distraction from the onscreen events. See the studio showreel for some examples of the thousands of film, tv and vide productions filmed in the Manchester hire studio.
The second studio is the exceptional sound proof studio. Heavily insulated, fully lit and air conditioned this 14x26ft space is ideal for intimate pieces-to-camera and slightly larger scale productions. Being sound proof means that there are no interruptions saving time and ultimately money with a more efficient filming schedule.
Unlike other studios you don’t need to decide in advance which of these spaces works best for you. As long as the other studio is not in use you can decide on the day which best suits you. This is the best way to help clients by remaining flexible and catering to their evolving needs during the filming.
Kit is available and also remember as a video production company if you need crew for your shoot let Galleon know and they can provide any of the skills you may need.
