TV Editing Facility To Open In Bristol
At least 20 new jobs to be created as one of London’s largest television post-production groups spends £1m on state-of-the-art South West base
The facility will cost approximately £1m to fit out and will include 30 picture and sound editing suites plus additional space for TV production offices.
Evolutions managing director Simon Kanjee said: “Having had discussions with our existing independent television production company clients in London - as well as local TV producers in Bristol - we believe there is a significant demand for the scale, speed and quality of post-production service that we can offer. Although we cannot reveal details yet, we already have some very interesting jobs booked in.”
He added: “Bristol is a vibrant and exciting city and, despite the difficult economic climate, the media sector is thriving. By opening a facility in Bristol we believe we can help to grow the local market.”
Keys to the new building were handed over last week and a recruitment drive is currently underway.
It is expected that the new facility will be up and running by July before becoming fully operational in September.
