The Space Project and dock10 have announced details of a new collaboration that will give productions based at The Space Project seamless access to dock10’s post production and content management platform.
Enabled by fibre connectivity from The Space Project in West Gorton to dock10’s facilities at MediaCityUK, the agreement will also minimise data ingest and transfer times for productions, reduce costs, logistical requirements and security concerns inherent with file delivery.
“This is an important next step in the evolution of Manchester’s ability to offer a powerful and compelling alternative to making TV and film in London; or anywhere else in the Europe for that matter,” said Susan Woodward, founder of The Space Project. “I’m both excited and hugely optimistic about what this new era of co-operation represents for Manchester, helping in part deliver the government-backed economic powerhouse of the North.”
Mark Senior, chief executive of dock10, added: “The reasons to make TV and film in Manchester, tapping into the region’s infrastructure, skills and cost advantages grow stronger by the day. The Space Project and dock10’s facilities are complementary and our combined proposition amounts to far more than the sum of its parts. With this latest agreement we take a considerable step closer to the joint vision of ‘One Manchester’, unified by creative and technological excellence.”
