est Midlands based video and production specialist Central
Presentations Ltd (CPL) will be the main supplier of specialist
broadcast and AV equipment to the re-launched Giltbrook Studios in
Nottingham. Giltbrook offers a cutting edge facility in the heart of the Midlands for all
types of productions from drama and commercials to business television,
infomercials and green-screen shooting.
The project to rejuvenate and bring the space right up to date originally
opened as a purpose-built, sound-proofed TV studio in the 1970s - is the
brainchild of TV professional Andy Swain and other key individuals with
extensive broadcast industry experience, who have teamed up with studio
owners, Finishing Post.
Says Swain, “Many people have fond memories of working at Giltbrook over
the years and the new Giltbrook will be a vibrant and exciting space with
great functionality and a modern infrastructure that will allow creativity to
flourish. It will also be a cost effective option, and we look forward to a long
and fruitful working relationship with CPL and Finishing Post on this project.
This completely new era Giltbrook Studio has benefitted from a substantial
programme of reinvestment, re-equipping of the studios including a new
lighting rig, and a completely new mind-set, plus the association with CPL.
All of these elements have already energised its new lease of life.”
