News Image
Films@59 and live content technology specialists Loop Streaming and Productions Ltd are the latest two businesses to join the strong creative hub at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol.

Fiona Francombe, The Bottle Yard Studios’ Site Director sais: "I'm delighted to welcome these two additions to our permanent tenant community. Films@59 are incredibly well respected, to have them officially established on site is a great boost for our industry reputation. Their services complement the equipment hire offered by our existing tenants Video Europe and Visual Impact, meaning we now have an even wider range of kit immediately available on site. As the first regional post house to gain Albert certification for sustainable policies, they are also on board with our aims to encourage lower carbon emissions in TV/film production. Loop are an exciting company leading the way in new broadcast solutions for live content, they add an innovative new specialism to the range of services our tenants offer."

Films@59's new Bottle Yard branch provides camera, sound and lighting equipment rental to productions based at the Studios, as well as client storage for kit during shoots. George Panayioutou, Films@59's Business Director, says: "Having a permanent presence at The Bottle Yard Studios was well overdue for us. We have provided camera kit and rushes management to a number of productions based there in the past few years, including Sanditon, Poldark, Trollied, The Spanish Princess season one and The Living and The Dead. We’re delighted to open our new branch there - it shows our commitment to our clients, puts us even closer to them and helps us provide the high level of service they expect."

Founded in 1990, Films@59 is an award-winning pre and post-production house with sites in Bristol (Whiteladies Road and Cotham Hill), Brockley and Cardiff. Delivering across all genres, the company is known for its achievements in high-end broadcast, particularly in factual entertainment, natural history and scripted drama. The company delivers production solutions from camera kit rental, DIT services, data management, workflow design and full picture and sound post production, to a growing international client list including Netflix, BBC, Disney and National Geographic. Recent productions include Seven Worlds One Planet (BBC Studios NHU/BBC One), Ultimate Survival WWII (Icon Films/Nat Geo), Dancing with the Birds (Living Planet Productions/Netflix), The Great British Bake Off (Love West/Channel 4), The Wonderful World of Baby Animals (Blakeway Productions/Channel 5), Expedition with Steve Backshall (True to Nature/Dave), Animal Babies: First Year on Earth (BBC Studios NHU/BBC Two).

Loop Streaming and Productions Ltd has a team of five staff based at their new Bottle Yard headquarters, coupled with regular freelancers across the country. Nick Oldfield, Director and Head of Production at Loop Streaming and Productions Ltd, says: "Moving to The Bottle Yard Studios came at the perfect time for Loop. Over the past two years our client base, equipment and staff numbers has grown at a rapid pace – this meant we were at bursting point in our previous Clifton office. The move has, almost instantaneously, improved staff productivity, workplace enjoyment and the overall morale of the company ten-fold. Everyone at Loop is excited to be surrounded by like-minded professionals from the other businesses based here. I have no doubt that our specialities and professions will cross paths leading to working together on projects. As we continue to grow as a company, the whole team are looking forward to being part of such a vibrant new Loop HQ."

Founded in Bristol in 2017, Loop Streaming and Productions Ltd specialises in providing end-to-end broadcast solutions for industry standard live productions at a fraction of traditional broadcasting costs. Loop achieves this by using cutting edge technology; combining IP based networked vision mixers, robotic and manned cameras and fully bespoke graphics packages with linear television and online encoders. This removes the need for large outside broadcasting trucks and expensive satellite uplinks. Loop also offers the ability to encode simultaneously to multiple platforms as well as assisting with cloud-based transcoding and internet connectivity. Working predominantly within the sport industry, Loop’s global client base includes BBC Sport, Sky Sports, Matchroom Boxing, Eurosport, World Snooker and the Professional Darts Corporation. Away from sport, Loop have worked alongside Facebook, the world-famous London nightclub Fabric and a number of TV shopping channels.

There are now 24 companies based on site at The Bottle Yard Studios, providing a host of services including creative, digital, technical and audio/visual expertise, grips, transport, structural, fire and safety assistance.
