Twickenham Studios opens new space to connect industry professionals
Date posted: 14.12.2016
Film London recently partnered with Twickenham Studios to host an event to launch their new members networking and event space, The Lounge. As a fitting opening, members of the London Filming Partnership and Locations Crew Diary met with producers and post-production supervisors at the spacious venue, which is located conveniently right on the studio lot.
Guests also toured the sound stages, dressing rooms, and editing rooms at the studio, learning more about what is on offer. Established in 1913, Twickenham Studios has been serving London's film and TV industry for over a century, with both production and post-production facilities available.
A space for networking
The new membership-only space is a welcome addition to the networking opportunities on offer for location professionals in London. It will provide a place where those who work in the creative industries can meet more informally on a day-to-day basis, as well as attending social events such as screenings of newly released and classic films which will be shown in the studio theatres.
London's growing studio offer
Twickenham Studios is one of several established studios based within the M25, including 3 Mills Studios, Wimbledon Studios and Ealing Studios, along with other studios within easy striking distance of London such as Pinewood, Leavesden and Elstree. Combined with a huge range of filming locations on offer in the capital (over 6,000 in the Film London directory (link) alone), this makes the region a hub for industry professionals to connect and collaborate with each other.
London is already the third busiest city for film productions in the world, and with the potential for a new studio being built in Dagenham being considered (for which Film London will be directing the feasibility study), the opportunities for making connections in the screen industries can only grow stronger.
This event was sponsored by Integro Entertainment and Film Finances.
