Nine Tree Studios, a new 10,000 sq ft film, television and commercial production studio, has opened in Bristol.
It is Bristol’s largest independent TV and film facility, and is being opened in stages. Phase one includes a production space with attached offices.
Phase two will see the build and fit-out of a 2,600sq ft primary soundstage, two smaller 300sq ft studios, grading suites, wardrobe, sound facilities, and expanded office and meeting space.
“This is an incredibly exciting chapter in our history. We’ve been based in Bristol for 12 years, steadily growing our team, portfolio and clients, but this represents a huge leap forward and an incredibly exciting development for the region too” said Russell Jones, co-founder of Nine Tree Studios and JonesMillbank, the Bristol-based video production company which is backing the facility.
“We’ve already secured funding to develop and expand the space, helping to support not only our own productions but the wider creative community too”.
Adam Millbank, co-founder of Nine Tree Studios and JonesMillbank, added that “the continued growth in productions across our region is wonderful. I’ve been blown away by the diverse talent here. It feels fantastic to know we’ll be part of such a dynamic industry, celebrating all the region has to offer.”
The expansion will allow for the creation of numerous jobs, including technicians, crew, and studio managers, said the company, whilst allowing for the provision of work experience and placements.
Phase one has launched, with phase two scheduled for 2023 Q3, pending bookings and market demand.
