Studio Hire In Manchester.

At Galleon Studios we welcome video production, film, television and live streaming projects. We’re proud to have over 80 5-star Google Reviews and are committed to helping you deliver your project whether you’re a small business or a global enterprise.

We not only offer 3 first-class filming studios in Manchester, (as well as a Podcast Studio!) but we also offer crew hire and the most comprehensive kit hire list imaginable.

We’re primarily, but not exclusively, a green screen studio. We offer free lighting in all our studios. We also hire cameras and mics, autocues, live mixers, motion control cameras and a variety of chroma key props like treadmills, turntables and live keyers. The latter enables you to see your production take shape as you shoot.

Galleon Studios has not only an enviable reputation but location too, being just off the M62 in North Manchester.  It’s an ideal location for filming with easy access to the motorway, the City Centre, the Airport and the rail network. Many Manchester city centre studios suffer from noise pollution and extortionate parking charges, often unloading is a nightmare and we, for one, would prefer that wasn’t the first stress to your filming day. As such we offer ground floor access, ample parking and it’s free at our Manchester hire studio.

Fully Loaded Studio Hire.

The Right Studio Space.

Whether you’re filming product videos, e-learning, interviews for TV or documentary, live streaming or need space to build a set then Galleon has it all. Our studios have been used by the major broadcasters, global blue-chip companies and one-man bands using our skills and know-how to create great video content that ticks all the boxes.

You’ll have seen our studios on TV shows, commercials, music videos, short films, promos, training videos and more and not even know it. You name it; it’s all been filmed in our unique venue under our soundproof roof.

Lighting Included.

What’s more our studios are fully kitted. Lighting is included as standard for every hire with our spaces being pre-lit. That’s right. Walk-in, flick a switch (or two, or three) and achieve a nice even lighting style for your project. Need to supplement the built-in studio lighting then we offer all our lighting including Gemini Litepanels, free of charge with every hire.

Fully Equipped Filming Studios.

Need more than just lights? Galleon have it all. As well as 4k cameras (including the Sony PMW-FX9) we have outstanding lav and boom mics, fantastic autocues, jaw-dropping live keyers, amazing motion control tracks and more superb (and superlative) kit. You’ll find details of all of it on the brochure download section on this page. it’s not unheard of for clients and crews to rock up with no kit of their own and rely solely on our tech and expertise to get exactly what they were after.

With 15 years in the video production industry we know what works and doesn’t work in a studio environment. Our studio is made by professionals for professionals. As such we’re proud to offer 3 unique spaces that can handle the most complex filming productions. Our famous Manchester Infinity Cove is a clean perfect space ideal to conjure whatever your imagination can dream up. Don’t need green? Need white? Need a set? No problem we have the capacity and skills to transform the studio space to suit your video production.

Dry Hire.

The studios can be dry hired using your own kit and crew. As such you can use the studios as though they’re your very own. If you’re shooting for multiple days you can store equipment overnight in our secure filming facility.

Endless Possibilities.

While our Manchester soundproof studio is completely isolated from outside noise meaning uninterrupted recordings of live TV, video lectures, complex interviews or VO.  Our third studio; The Live Suite features both an infinity cove and soundproof studio in a self contained building. It was specially built for live streaming. All our spaces offer ample protection from the outside world with insulated ceilings, thick walls on an overall quiet trading estate. Not to mention we also don’t believe in an 8-hour day so there’s no rushing you in an out as we offer an industry standard 10-hour day as standard.

As well as being fully equipped for filming we have clothing rails, ironing board, clothes steamers. We can also recommend accommodation and catering options.
