A new two-studio TV and film facility is set to open in Anglesey, Wales in October.
Aria Studios includes 20,000 square foot of filming space and is a joint venture between Rondo Media and S4C’s commercial arm, S4C Digital Media Limited, with the support of Welsh Government through Creative Wales.
The £1.6 million studio facility is expected to provide significant opportunities for attracting inward investment in the creative sector to North Wales, said the companies.
Aria Studios will assist productions to deliver environmentally sustainable production by providing a number of solutions to minimise the carbon footprint during production, added the owners.
Rondo Media’s chief executive, Gareth Williams said: “This investment will be a major boost for the industry in North Wales.
“We are grateful for the support of S4C’s commercial arm, Cymru Greadigol, Wales Screen, the British Film Commission and Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn in enabling this exciting development.
“With such an emphasis on securing growth and investment across the creative industries, and in particular in the nations and regions, we see a real opportunity here to grow a brand new facility which will offer sustainable long-term employment opportunities in the region and build on several skillsets that already exists in the area,” added Williams.
“We look forward to collaborating with a wide range of partners to see Aria Studios flourish and grow.”
