dock10 has opened HQ8, its new 750 square-foot television studio.
Suitable for small sets, the studio possesses green screen capabilities, comes fully lit and with complete integration into dock10’s gallery and post production infrastructure.
HQ8 is designed to meet the requirements of customers that need affordable but professional studio hire by the day. This, said dock10, includes the increasing demand from creative agencies for filming products and interviews, as well as digital content creators who want to use professional facilities.
The studio will also enable producers in dock10’s main studios to simultaneously employ a smaller second studio for additional commentary, a behind-the-scenes view or a companion show.
It will be operational at the end of May for “a primetime Saturday night show from a major broadcaster”.
“Digital platforms like YouTube have fuelled an explosion of video content,” said Andy Waters, head of studios, dock10.
“As serious content creators strive to improve the quality of their output, HQ8 is providing them with the affordable, flexible and professional television facilities to make it happen. Our studios have an excellent reputation for enabling the creation of world-class programmes, and we’re excited that HQ8 is making this same level of excellence accessible to an even wider range of new content creators.”
