TV & Film Studios

This exciting project is being developed in a partnership between The Northern School of Art, Hartlepool Borough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority. With potential funding of £2.8m this project will bring to Hartlepool The Scott Building, providing a flexible internal arrangement to maximise teaching space provision and stage / set production; and The Northern Studios, the only dedicated film and television studio production base in the North East region incorporating workshop facilities and equipment for immersive and emerging technologies, as well as large scale 3D fabrication of sets and props. The Northern Studios will provide 3,000m2 of sound stage, green screen studio, workshops and production office space.
