Film & TV Studio Space For Hire

The Big Shed is a photographers and cinematographers dream space. Located minutes from Manchester city centre and the M60 motorway, Big Shed is the ideal space to shoot large sets, automotive photography, TV commercials, videos and 'overhead' shots.

With over 4,000 sq ft of studio facilities, we can assist partially or fully in your productions needs, from lighting hire, set building, catering, props, accommodation, camera and equipment hire to sourcing the right people for your project - all you have to do is ask! In particular, we possess a drive-in studio featuring a large infinity corner cove as well as a mezzanine studio, all of which is equipped with full cove blackout or full chromakey drapes and flooring for easy green screen set up. We also have a unique, purpose-built facility for taking overhead shots with no obstructions, known as 'The Cage'. To see what it's capable of, feel free to view our image selection below.

We aim to be both helpful and efficient, allowing your production to run as smoothly as possible whilst also being an enjoyable experience.
