New Welsh TV studio officially opens its doors

The studio is aiming to deliver sustainable productions and minimise its carbon footprint, with local film and TV crews available

Aria Studios, a brand new 20,000 square foot fully soundproofed film and television studio in North Wales, has officially opened.

The  £1.6 million facility has been established by Rondo Media and S4C’s commercial arm S4C Digital Media Limited, with the support of the Welsh government through Creative Wales.

The studio is aiming to deliver sustainable productions and minimise its carbon footprint, offering sustainable opportunities for other ancillary sectors, including catering, accommodation providers and waste management. Local film and TV crews will be available in order to minimise travel expenses and carbon emissions.

Rondo Media’s chief executive, Gareth Williams said: “This launch is significant for our TV and film industry here in Wales. We’re thankful for the support from S4C’s commercial arm, Cymru Greadigol, and Wales Screen for helping us bring this vision to life, which we know will offer brilliant new opportunities and investment to the region.

“North Wales has such a unique offering, from its breath-taking landscapes to its creative production talent, and we’re looking forward to further investment in the region and working with inspiring partners to enable the production of exceptional content for a worldwide audience.”

 S4C chief executive Siân Doyle added: “Creating opportunities to nurture talent in the creative sector across the whole of Wales is a key priority for S4C and we are delighted to support Aria Studios.

“To have a great resource like this at the home of Rownd a Rownd – one of S4C’s biggest productions – is something really exciting for us. I see the Aria Studios initiative as an opportunity to nurture local talent and build on S4C’s presence in North Wales as well as attracting more high profile productions to Anglesey. I look forward to a very exciting future working with Aria Studios.”
