dock10 has been providing production facilities and post production services for The Furchester Hotel, a new CBeebies in-house and Sesame Workshop co-production. The series began filming on 24 February in docs10’s HQ2 studio and is scheduled for broadcast in Autumn 2014.
Andy Waters, head of studios, said, “HQ2 is one of the most technically advanced studios in the UK, with connectivity for 12 camera channels, file-based HD workflows system and advanced lighting and scenic hoists – it’s a fantastic environment for production and talent alike. We’re delighted that the residents of The Furchester Hotel have made HQ2 their home for the next few months, and we will work hard to keep Cookie Monster’s cookie supply regularly replenished.”
