We are delighted to confirm that the latest addition to our expanding tenant community is the leading independent TV and film post-production specialists, The Farm Group.
The multi-award winning company is no stranger to The Bottle Yard, having delivered on site post production to the Channel 4 gameshow Deal or No Deal since the show relocated to the Studios in 2013 from its previous home at Bristol’s Paintworks.
From their new base at The Bottle Yard Studios, The Farm Group will extend their post-production offering, including a digital dailies service, to other productions shooting at the Studios and across the wider region. Their presence brings the number of business tenants operating from The Bottle Yard Studios to fifteen.
Nicky Sargent, Founder of The Farm Group, says: “We’re thrilled to be expanding the services we can offer in the South West and are looking forward to working closely with Fiona and her team to help The Bottle Yard Studios continue to grow as a creative centre of excellence.”
Fiona Francombe, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, says: “We’re delighted to welcome The Farm Group to their new permanent base at The Bottle Yard. Their presence means that for the first time we are able to offer a complete post service to productions based with us. Having them right here on site, means that their skilled and experienced team can be on hand to productions whenever they are needed, which is hugely convenient. Our tenant community has grown extensively in the past year and I’m pleased to say that we’re now home to a full range of facilities companies who can support productions at almost every stage of the production process, from pre-production to wrap.”
