Shinfield Studios is owned by affiliates of Commonwealth Asset Management, based in Los Angeles. As part of its plans to create a global film studios operation, Commonwealth will also develop a prime 93-acre site in Los Angeles and has acquired Blackhall Studios, a leading film studios campus in Atlanta, USA. Shinfield Studios are led by Managing Directors Ian Johnson and Nick Smith who together form one of the most experienced teams in the industry.
4 stages, workshops and offices, granted under a temporary planning application, are due to open Autumn 2021. This will provide approximately 7,500 sq m of film studio space and approximately 7,000 sq m of workshop space.
A planning application to create Shinfield Studios Creative Media Hub, is currently with Wokingham Borough Council which would provide 18 purpose built sound stages (encompassing the 4 temporary stages and workshops), together with workshops, a post production complex including cinema, plus contemporary offices.
