The possibility of more studio space being built in Scotland is being examined by creative and business agencies.
The feasibility study is the latest assessment of whether Scotland’s TV and film industries could support a standalone studio and post-production complex.
Scottish Enterprise and Creative Scotland are conducting the study.
Project manager David Jack said he hopes it will produce an outline specification for a production studio, adding: “It will assess anticipated industry demand for production facilities and we’ll develop a business case from the intelligence.”
Jack said the studio specification was likely to form part of a campus-style facilities village that would accommodate companies providing services to TV and film production.
Pacific Quay - home to BBC Scotland, STV, 12 Yard and Editworks - is the most likely site.
A previous feasibility study in 2010 found that the Pacifi c Quay BBC studios were not large enough for full-scale light-entertainment productions.
After that study was published, it was decided that plans to encourage private-sector investment were not viable financially.
The debate in the Scottish Parliament last month that suggested building additional post-production and studio facilities received cross-party backing.
MSP Nigel Don said: “We need to support business development across the whole value chain.
The part that’s missing is a world-class studio and facilities village.”
The Scottish Enterprise and Creative Scotland feasibility report is due to be published around April next year.
