Hire firm Filmscape Media has opened a new facility at the Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol.

Originally specialising in digital 35mm cinematography equipment, Filmscape recently launched a new lighting rental division, offering HMI lighting, Fresnel lighting, Kino Flo, lighting grip and cable distribution.  

It is the lighting division that Filmscape Media will develop from its new base at The Bottle Yard, its first premises outside central London.

Filmscape Media technical director Renos Louka (pictured) said: “We wanted to establish a base in Bristol from which to serve the West of England region and develop our lighting division.

“We feel that The Bottle Yard Studios are a crucial driver of industry growth in the region and so in our view they were the perfect match to help realise our ambitions. Our new base enables us to serve the local area as well as be on hand at the Studios to offer our services, so it’s the ideal location for us.”

Filmscape Media is the tenth tenant to set up a permanent base in The Bottle Yard.

The Bottle Yard managing director Fiona Francombe said: “We’re delighted to welcome Filmscape Media to our tenant community, and proud that they have chosen to open their very first regional office with us as they develop their lighting division further.

“They join our existing business tenants Visual Impact and 180 Rental to further strengthen our offering of high standard specialist audiovisual services. With every new company that joins us, The Bottle Yard’s creative hub grows stronger, which is great to see.” 

Filmscape Media is headquartered at The Perfume Factory in central London. Its recent credits include Mr Sloane and A Young Doctor’s Notebook.
