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, opened at the end of November 2021. 2 stages of 20,000 sq ft and 2 stages of 17,000 sq ft. All with a working height of 35 ft.
The planning application to create Shinfield Studios Creative Media Hub, was approved by Wokingham Borough Council and we are now pushing on with this new development which will provide a further 14 purpose built sound stages (creating 18 in total), together with workshops, a post production complex including cinema, plus contemporary offices.
The development will open in phases over the next 2 years with an additional 5 stages open by the end of 2022, 5 more by end of 2023 and the remaining 4 by the middle of 2024. Please see news pages for latest updates.
