Centre Screen are excited to announce big changes to the way our London studio will be operating from the autumn. This week we say goodbye to our Shoreditch office, and begin a new, more flexible approach to our business in the capital.
Cloud-based production apps, video-call meetings, and superfast broadband mean we can think again about how we work in London, and we’ve used the opportunity as a springboard to make some clever operational changes. We will be retaining a bricks and mortar hub in Spitalfield’s Second Home, but client presentations and creative meetings can be held – well, where ever we want them to be held, and where ever best suits our clients and our collaborators. Whether we’re meeting at our new hub, over coffee in Bermondsey or The Museum Quarter, or presenting in a Soho cinema space, this new approach promises flexibility to adapt to current and future projects. It’s a hybrid form of organising that allows us to meet our clients’ needs, while giving our established ‘creative collective’ of London-based collaborators the 21st century flexibility and autonomy they deserve.
From a client perspective, the transition will be seamless. We remain committed to a high-level presence in the capital, and Executive Producer and Company Director Lisa O’Neill will continue to lead new and ongoing collaborations in London, guaranteeing an agile, dedicated response to the needs of clients, both nationally and internationally.
Similarly, it’s business as usual up north in Manchester with our in-house team, and Executive Producer and Company Director Hayley Walsh and Finance Director Trevor Hayes overseeing production, operations, and back-office functions.
We look forward to working with you in the future as we have in the past, and if you have any questions or would like to meet up in London, Manchester, or anywhere else for that matter, then we’d love you to get in touch!
