U.K. Studio Boom “White Hot” Despite a Year of Lockdowns
In early March 2020, a new $640 million fund investing in a series of film studios throughout the U.K. was officially announced. First up: Twickenham Studios, the century-old London site known for such British classics as The Italian Job, Zulu and Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the home of the Oscar-winning sound work […]There was no reason to think for a second that this wasn’t a sure bet. Thanks to generous tax credits and a major pool of talent helping the U.K. emerge as a key hub for Hollywood studios and streamers, production had been soaring for several years, reaching a record high of $4.7 billion in revenue in 2019 and led by a surge in high-end television.
Internet personality Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor is among the buyers at the project. “The convenient location … is what attracted me to the space,” he says. “I immediately fell in love with the functionalities of the unit. It is the perfect space to create, relax and get business done.”
For residents Malika and Zac Lim Eubank, co-founders of content studio Hyper Rabbit Media, the ability to have a state-of-the-art studio was a strong draw. “Having four floors facilitates work-life balance and aids in keeping up with the demands of social media and live-streaming,” says Malika. “The commercial build of the location allowed us the amount of electrical power we needed to power all our production hardware including our LED video wall.”
