Green Screen D
Located within our main Post Production Studios, Studio D, our smaller green screen suite is a 350 square foot space which is ideal for filming interviews, smaller adverts and casting sessions. We also use this suite for smaller scale filming which we live stream, webcast and undertake various types of corporate projects for our clients. We can provide lighting and grip, and for live streaming we hire cameras which are appropriately scaled for this type of work. Our grip and lighting includes a Vinten Dolphin and low energy lighting from Videoessence, Gekko and Photon. For live streaming we can also provide encoding services. This suite, which is adjacent to our main audio post suite, can be used for larger Foley projects as it is connected via doors to the audio post suite. We offer Casting Directors the facilities to film, edit, encode and stream casting sessions worldwide or even stream in real time to any organisation’s internal network irrespective of location and to any platform.
Post Production Sound
Our main audio studio centres round a 208 input AMS Neve Logic 2 console with the Film Panel option. This gives a monitoring matrix for every 5:1 and 7:1 monitoring combination. Monitoring is handled by The Blue Sky Big Blue 7:1 system and Tannoy, PMC and ATC monitors. There is a voice over booth in the main room and connecting doors to the larger studio next door for larger Foley projects. The studio is fully equipped for ADR and runs Steinberg Nuendo 7 and Avid Protools software. There is a large selection of microphones and outboard and 1080p projection is pushed to a Stewart Cinema screen. Frame accurate sync is handled by Avid SyncHD and additional playback is from a Doremi Post playout system.
The Govan Shed
“The Govan Shed is a large warehouse situated close to the Glasgow Digital Media Quarter and offering around 3,000 sq m of build space, with 9m and 12m eaves height respectively across two bays. This is a no-frills option where space and height is the primary requirement for a set build, or can equally be used as a location where a dramatic older warehouse is required. Many of the original fittings have been left on the walls which makes for beautiful textured backgrounds for a variety of industrial style shoots. The building has been used for everything from low budget 1 day music video shoots right through to a set build for World War Z, with virtually every level and budget in between catered for.
The building has a 63A three phase outlet, along with three 32A single phase outlets within the electrical room and another two 32A outlets halfway up the warehouse space, catering for just about any power requirements. No other services are provided, and as such, the building should be treated as a location with suitable location facilities provided by the production company to service the crew’s requirements.”
