Indie True North is to open a post production studio in Newcastle.

True North already operates True North Post in its HQ in Leeds.

True North Post delivered post production on programmes including Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes and Help! We Bought A Village.

True North Post has been working closely with Invest Newcastle and North East Screen throughout the process and will be based in the city centre Collingwood Buildings to maintain close proximity to regional and national transport links.

Gemma Ackerley, Business Consultant, True North Post, said: “The team are thrilled to be opening their doors in Newcastle, bringing top-tier post-production services to the region. Our focus on training and development aims to nurture local talent and create new opportunities within the vibrant North East creative community.

“We are excited to work closely with and support North East productions, providing comprehensive post-production services tailored to their unique needs. Our commitment is to enhance the region’s creative output and help bring local stories to life with exceptional quality and expertise.

“It has been fantastic partnering with North East Screen and Invest Newcastle. Their support and collaboration have been instrumental in helping us establish a strong presence in the region, and we look forward to many more successful ventures together.”

True North Post’s arrival in Newcastle comes soon after the announcement of a £450 million film studio development in Sunderland, Crown Works Studios, and a three-fold increase in production over the past 12 months.

Jennifer Hartley, Director of Investment, NewcastleGateshead Initiative (NGI), said: “It’s been a pleasure working with True North Post helping them find the right home in Newcastle and bringing with them much-needed post-production capabilities that will enrich the creative industries ecosystem.

“Following the establishment of North East Screen Industries Partnership, and working alongside North East Screen, we now have a thriving sector and are seeing more and more TV and film productions being shot in the stunning locations our region has to offer.

“With True North Post joining us, those productions can now be brought to life locally and used to promote the outstanding natural beauty we have across the North East.”

Lisa Laws, Director of Development, North East Screen, said: “With studio developments in the region on the horizon and an ever-increasing number of productions filming in the North East, True North Post’s arrival is a great addition to our wider post-production and supply chain network.

“It’s been a pleasure to support them with the recruitment of posts to their Newcastle office, especially given how committed they are to investing in skills development. We are thrilled to welcome them to the region.”
