Kit hire firm Shoot Blue has moved to Acton, West London after the building that housed its Finchley HQ was sold to a residential property developer.

The new 3,500 sq ft facility is the same size as the company’s previous home but, according to managing director Jon Howarth, is a “much more functional space, designed from the ground up and configured to better suit our business operations, clients and staff.”

Howarth said £150,000 has been spent on the new unit.

Additions include a mezzanine floor to house office space and post-production facilities, and a dedicated test room.

The W3 postcode is already home to several rental firms including Procam, VMI, 24-7 Drama, HotCam and Filmscape Media.
