The Infinity Cove

The beating heart of our studio is the infinity cove. A large adaptable space it’s considered the best cove in the north of England. The infinity cove is a blank canvas for you to create your perfect production. It’s been used for food shoots, product filming, car commercials, for short films and features, music videos and even as a venue for media training. In fact, the odds are you’ve seen the cove on TV or your computer screen at some point.

It can not only be painted a variety of colours the space can be used for set builds too. We can help with that so get in touch for details of how we can help your project become a reality.

The studio is sound dampened which means you can record audio in our spaces. We have a lighting grid in the pre-lit space and any other lighting we have or that you hire/bring in can supplement these.

The Soundproof Studios

Galleon Studios has the North’s quietest studio offering an intimate space for interviews, pieces-to-camera and small sets. Many documentaries, testimonials and product videos have been filmed in its 4 (fully soundproofed) walls. It’s the ideal location for filming e-learning videos and how-to productions as you can film uninterrupted. It’s been the filming location for numerous clip shows and reality TV productions where getting that “sound bite” is essential.

As well as being a pre-lit shooting space we can also assist your production by offering extra kit. It’s not unusual for crews hiring the space to also rent our autocue, or our amazing microphones.

It’s a great space to shoot AR as well as live TV or live webcasts.
