British based facility group The Farm is moving its Bristol operations into a 10,000 sq ft space in Grade II listed building Edgecumbe Hall to deal with growing demand for post work in the region.
Farm Bristol will make the move into the new premises – already being dubbed ‘Farmton Abbey’ due to its ‘country house’ appearance – next April.
The facility will open as a full-service post production house, offering grading, sound studios, editing, VFX, production offices with space for more than 50 desks, meeting rooms, break-out areas, gardens and two roof terraces.
According to co-founder, Nicky Sargent the facility was starting to outgrow its Whiteladies Road building and had resorted to sub-letting space in other buildings.
“We needed to stay in the area, next to the BBC and Edgecumbe Hall is beautiful, it’s a great size and has lots of character features.
“It is being exquisitely refurbished and is shaping up perfectly for what we need,” she added.
Farm colourist, Dan Gill, as well as online editors Ed Gibbs and George Winfield will join the team, including managing director Duncan Armstrong, creative director Cas Casey, plus 25 Farm Bristol staffers.
