Opening in October 2020, the Tank Factory Studios comprise four studios converted from old industrial premises. A former tank factory in fact, located in Stanley Gardens, Acton. They all have permanent white cycs and are fully air-conditioned with a ‘Covid 19-busting 3-in-one purification system.’ Rather alarmingly, the photos on their website show that they appear to have skylights letting in daylight but I’m sure that has been put right now.
The studios are approximately 6,700 sq ft, 3,500 sq ft, 4,400 sq ft and 4,000 sq ft but are irregular shapes. Their primary market seems to be commercials, music videos and photoshoots. However, the management have said they are keen to attract multicamera TV work and to that end they have brought in facilities company Prolink to supply the necessary kit. These are the people who provide the equipment at the Cactus studio in Clapham. Studios 1, 2 and 3 have been equipped with motorised grids and lighting kit is available for hire. I have yet to hear of any multicamera TV shows being recorded here so far – can you help with any info?
