Accessibility statement


Due to the current situation around covid-19, following the advice from government and world health organisation we are postponing facility and equipment hire for the foreseeable future.

This will enable as much access to our facilities for our students whilst social distancing is in force, we hope to be operational again for hire soon. In the meantime please continue to get in touch if you are looking for assistance with post production, or collaborations with our students or researchers.
