New post-production space in Wapping
A new creative workspace including post-production facilities is to open next week in Wapping, east London.
The Nest is a £1.7m hub developed with the TV production, post-production and wider creative industries in mind.
The Docklands space comprises 8,000 sq ft of work space over two floors and includes a 24-hour full-service post-production facility of four private edit/grading suites, a voiceover sound studio and gallery, screening rooms and a communal area for up to 50 people.
The private editing/grading suites each includes a DaVinci resolve system with Mini panel, reference monitors with a separate TV for client viewing, a full Adobe Creative Cloud suite and a choice of core processors and Apple iMacPro with connection to GBLabs HyperSpace enabling 4K editing and grading.
The development is by Cherryduck Studios, formerly known as Tower Bridge Studios. The expansion sees Cherryduck become one of central London’s biggest studio facilities.
“With the surge in demand for digital content, the explosion in the number of new TV production companies, London’s wealth of young creative post-production talent and the ever-growing need to collaborate with other creative sectors, we feel The Nest will prove to be a popular high-quality workspace hub just around the corner from Shoreditch”, said Cherryduck Studios CEO James Vellacott.
The demand for studio and post-production space in London and the south-east is increasing. Some existing studio facilities are expanding, such as Pinewood and Elstree, while Dagenham is set to house a major new studio.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan previously said of the capital’s profile as an international production hub: “London is a global capital for film - from Bond to Bridget Jones and Star Wars to Paddington - our capital is world-renowned for its film industry and has at least 40 crews out on London’s streets filming every single day."
