Castle Industries

Former textile factory Castle Industries is a 60,000 sq ft industrial space, with adjoining offices suitable for production, art and editing purposes. WIFI and telephone easily connected. The space is highly versatile for build, day-for-night, prop storage, green screen etc. There are loading bays and several plots of land surrounding the building available for use as unit base.

The site is very close to Ronaldsway airport making it extremely useful for HODs and senior personnel travelling back and forth to the Island.

Kennaa Film Studios

The majority of film productions use the Isle of Man for its diverse locations. However, when a studio space or weather cover is needed, Kennaa is perfectly positioned to fulfil that need. Kennaa Film Studios offers a new office block to the rear side of the studios with telephone lines and internet connections also kitchen facilities and parking, etc

The 4200 sq.ft. Sound stage has recently been upgraded with industry standard sound proofing and lighting rigs, to specifications provided by Simon 'Purple' Hayes, a member of MAPS. The sound stage walls have 400mm of densely packed insulation contained by 12mm ply, securely fixed via a timber frame to the steel frame and perfectly level concrete floor.

The roof is fixed through a steel bracket system allowing 600mm of densely packed insulation to give increased sound deadening properties. This is also lined with 12mm plywood. The roof and walls are lined with 75mm acoustic insulation (Rockwool Sound-Pro Insulation), and covered with a woven, studded, geotextile to give an extremely effective 'chesterfield sofa' effect. The frame has scaffold tubes welded to the roof trusses (6mm weld), giving a hanging point at 14 locations, with a load capability of 50Kg/m. An insulated service hatch (2ft x 2ft) allows cabling to run from outside, where a 10ft by 5ft shed has been constructed outside to house sound apparatus.
