More info

When it comes to film production facilities, we take an end–to–end approach.
As well as three incredibly versatile studio stages and the A–Z of cinema–quality kit we have on–site crew, full post–production facilities including grading and a cinema as well as the cherry on the top, Director Club, where you’ll find meeting rooms, lounges, a bar, barista coffee, massage therapy and a sauna.

Fully scalable – you can bring everything yourself or allow Sandstorm to provide it all for you – or anything in between.

The first studio we built at The Old Dairy in 2009.
Endlessly configurable and versatile for small studio production.
You name it, we shoot it here; vehicle exteriors and interiors, one, two and three walled room sets, live action with sync sound, Technodolly, multi–camera live studio, photography and both large and small scale product shoots of every description.

​1360ft2 | 126m2
44ft x 31ft x 10ft H | 13.5m x 9.5m x 3.2m H
L shaped infinity cove 9m x 9m
Sound–deadened w/excellent acoustics
Diffused white canopy over stage (can be removed)

The tough one, built to do everything we couldn’t do in Studio 1.
We’ve specced this studio to handle the rough stuff – we do all kinds of special effects shooting here including pyro.
It’s also beautifully equipped for shooting motion control, live action, smaller sets, stills photography – the space and height are a dream for all tabletop.
If visuals are priority over sound on a small–scale production, this is the stage for you.

860ft2 | 80m2
30ft x 33ft x 13ft H | 9m x 10m x 4m H
Green Screen | Blue Screen Infinity Cove 7m W x 4m H
Water Resistant
Fully Blackout

The big one, we opened this stage in August 2019.
With seven–metre high double–decker access, this sound stage boasts a full overhead lighting gantry, hoists, cherry picker and scissor lift, a huge floor space and extraordinary head height.
Take everything you can do in Studio 1 + 2, combine it and times it by two and soon you realise why this is the best production stage in the UK for the money.

5100ft2 | 480 m2
82ft x 62ft x 33ft H | 25m x 19m x 10m H
Sound–deadened (not soundproof) w/excellent acoustics
Double Decker Bus height vehicle access
Water Resistant

We have a full set build facility on–site, ready to go, with a lot of pre–configured room setups too.
From a six–room set; built, painted and ready to shoot in just three days to huge green screen rigs or small single room sets.
We’ve done most things here without any hassle and we're always on hand to assist.
