Shinfield Studios launched at the end of 2020 and is finalising development plans to create a state of the art, 21st Century film and television production complex over 65 acres of land close to the M4 located at the Thames Valley Science Park in Shinfield, Berkshire, England.
Building on the UK’s global reputation for producing world class content, this new Hub will offer film and television producers 18 new purpose-built sound stages within a development exceeding 1 million square feet together with workshop and mill space plus a contemporary office environment on a scale to service the largest blockbuster productions.
These new facilities will create a substantial and diverse range of employment opportunities and will enhance the innovation-led strategy at the Thames Valley Science Park established by our partner, the University of Reading, in conjunction with Wokingham Council.
The studio aims to bring “major Hollywood film productions to the UK” and create £500m of annual investment to the UK.
Nick Smith, managing director of Shinfield Studios, said: “Britain has an enviable array of filmmaking talent but the industry is short of high-quality studio facilities capable of catering for the new and emerging technologies that will form the core of television and film production in the future.”
He said the studios, which would cost more than £200m to develop, would “create a new powerhouse of creative production and new talent”.
