Cherryduck Studios, the Wapping-based film and TV production studios has now opened the doors to The Nest – a new, £1.7m TV production and post production creative hub.

The 8000-sq. ft. development includes a 24-hour full-service post production facility of four private edit/ grading suites, a voiceover sound studio and gallery, screening rooms and communal space for up to 50 individuals.

The Nest was designed by Gensler Architecture, best known for designing Facebook’s London HQ and San Francisco International Airport.
Facilities include a manned reception, dedicated desks, touchdown spaces, formal meeting rooms and bookable diner-style meeting booths equipped with presentation monitors, a café bar, chill-out areas, private phone booths, bike storage, a pool table, lockable storage, printing facilities and high speed secure internet.

Each private editing/ grading suite has a choice of HP Z840 2×12 core processors, 64GB RAM, 8GB GPU or Apple iMacPro with 10Gb connection to GBLabs HyperSpace allowing for 4K editing and grading, full Adobe Creative Cloud suite, DaVinci Resolve system with Mini panel, 2 x Eizo EV2750 and 1 x Eizo CG248 4k reference monitor, with a separate 49” LG 4k TV for client viewing. 

Desk space is available for individuals on a monthly rental basis

Cherryduck Studios and media content solutions business New Media Research (NMR) collaborated to create a bespoke server system dedicated to The Nest’s edit suites. The system utilises GB Labs’ Space, Hyperspace, Echo and Mini Vault LTO technology.

Seven new 5k 27” iMac Pro machines will also be installed for hire in workspace areas.

“With the surge in demand for digital content, the explosion in the number of new TV production companies, London’s wealth of young creative post production talent and the ever-growing need to collaborate with other creative sectors, we feel The Nest will prove to be a popular high-quality workspace hub just around the corner from Shoreditch” said Cherryduck Studios CEO James Vellacott.
