The facilities for hire at Atlas Studios consist of:
Main room - wooden floor
Dimension = 3239m2
Room with the original wooden floor throughout which is intersected by concrete and steel panels on the floor.
Large windows throughout the room allowing natural light to be plentiful. If the conditions allow it the evening light falls on the west facing windows and the setting sun cascades across the main room along its full length.
Colourful poles are positioned every 10 metres throughout the main room.
Electrics = 3 x 3phase electrical points in various points across the room. Standard mains plugs are located in many locations throughout the room.
Slate Room (Background image)
Dimensions = 661m2
Room with original slate flooring throughout the room and features from it's time as a cotton mill.
Smaller rooms are located within this room, as is a metal staircase (which leads to nowhere!) which is very stable and safe to use.
The majority of windows (of which there are over 20, all approximately 3 m in height) have a frosted glass giving a very soft diffused light within the room.
The colours within the room are all muted greens, creams and greys, meaning any film or photographic work using bright colours will be visually stunning.
Electrics = There are no electrics currently in this room*.
We have enough extension cables to bring in mains electrics into all areas of the room.
3 phase electricity cabling extensions would need to be hired, we have a contact for this if you should require it.
The lack of electricity means there is also no electrical lights within the room which means that there is no light within the room other than natural lighting.
Please plan your shoots accordingly to the light availability on the day, please keep in mind that the light within this room will darken approximately an hour before the sunset time.
*Plans are to have an electrical circuit within this room within the next three months.
Dimensions = 313m2
An old 90's office with blue floor tiles, white blinds, white walls and lowered tiled ceiling.*
This space also contains our green room.
Electrics = Mains plugs are plentiful within this room.
* This space is currently under development. All walls are being painted white and the floor will be having a laminate floor laid to give a clean, contemporary space which is a stark contrast to to the harsh industrial feel to the rest of the studios.
Dimensions = 35m2
One of the large offices in the office room has now been converted into our green room. Within it, there is a very large L shaped couch, three tables for equipment, rails for hanging clothing / costumes, a large collection of old cameras (these can be used as props if so desired!), a variety of chairs for you to use for any reason you see fit. We also have 3 heaters in our green room, two wall mounted heaters and 1 mobile heater, which ensures that no matter how cold it can become in our old Victorian mill, you won't be cold in our green room.
Toilets and shower facilities
We have male and female toilets, the female toilet also are also our disabled toilets. The female toilet also has a vanity counter and mirror built in, which can also be used for a baby changing table if so required.
