Films & Photoshoots

Housed within an early Gothic styled church, Jacksons Lane provides a wonderful backdrop to a photo or video shoot.

You can take full advantage of the architecture in Studio 1, with its dramatic tall windows or make use of a studio space for a more intimate project.

I hired Studio 1 for a video shoot. An amazing space creating a stunning background on film and camera. Staff were fabulous and very accommodating. Will definitely be using this space for future projects!
