Location Collective has now opened its new OMA V Film Studios site in Hertfordshire.

The site, near to St Albans has been designed for “a single high-end TV show or feature film looking for a self-contained, controllable studio solution.”

The new site sits with the group’s two other studios, OMA One Film Studios and OMA X Film Studios in Enfield North London.

The company’s Agency business (established in 2007) focuses on sourcing buildings with high film & TV industry usage potential. In 2019, Location Collective launched the company’s Studio business opening OMA One Film Studios and OMA X Film Studios.

The launch comes after the government announced new tax reliefs and business rates relief for film studios.

The new 5 acre site houses 65,000 sq ft of high spec sound stages (1 x 32,000 sq ft stage and 2 x 16,500 sq ft stages), fully soundproofed to industry standard NR25 level, 35,600 sq ft of production office and support space, a power upgrade to ensure the facility can run from renewable stage and house power, a full studio management service and a fully private, secure and controllable site

Antony Iredale, Founder of Location Collective, says: “We are hugely excited to be launching our third film studio in such a prime geographical location for film and TV production, and very proud to have created the first high specification film studio in the St Albans area at such a pivotal moment for our industry. We look forward to welcoming our first production onto the stages at OMA V, and to delivering the same quality of service customers are already experiencing at our currently operational facilities, OMA One Film Studios and OMA X Film Studios.”

Samantha Perahia MBE, Head of Production UK, British Film Commission, says: “We welcome the opening of OMA V Film Studios which, building on timely and welcome action announced by Government in the Spring Budget, further demonstrates the strength of the UK’s world class film and TV industry, and its ability to contribute significantly to the UK economy as a whole.”

Recent Location Collective credits include: Napoleon, Loki, Slow Horses, Empire of Light, The Crown, Gladiator 2, Mission Impossible, Wicked, Masters of the Air, Wicked Little Letters, Mr Bates vs the Post Office, Black Mirror and The Boys in the Boat.
