North East Films is a Creative Group supporting Actors, Musicians and Creatives in North East England.

by North East Films in Gateshead, England, United Kingdom

North East Films is seeking much needed support following our commitment to develop an Actors Hub and Community Studios in Felling, Gateshead prior to Covid.

Sadly we were affected, not just by the 7 months lost and not being able to officially launch the new studios but also we were subject to water damage in our main studio - Studio 3 where it was discovered when we returned after the main lockdown.

Luckily we had not completed that studio due to the Covid pandemic - but we are now in a position where we need to complete the work, repair the internal damage and renovate the studio and make it functional.


Water Damage to Studio 3

We are partially open at the moment where we can use 2 of the studios - however as Studio 3 is the main studio and controls Studio 5 (TV Studio) and Studio 4 (a Vocal Studio) - we must complete Studio 3 in order to be fully functional and finally complete the studios and become operational fully.

Over the past few weeks we have started weekly Workshops - which are receiving outstanding reviews and feedback.

People have said how professional the studios are and they love attending the creative space - however we are currently stuck as we can't complete the main studio and therefore can't make full use of the space.

We have raised over £50,000 for charities & Community Groups during the summer when in Lockdown.

During Covid Lockdown we supported a number of charities and helped them with their fundraising efforts, we raised more than £50,000 over the summer for Charity, donated hundreds of hours to support community causes including supporting disabled children to get mobility equipment... now we are in need and require help so we can open our new studios and deliver even more amazing ongoing support to the North East.

It's also difficult at present to function as we have to manually do setups and cable between studios - as our Studio 3 hasn't been installed and hardwired. This adds around 15+ hours a week just in setting up - but once we have Studio 3 operational this would be reduced to virtually zero - meaning more time spend being creative, supporting talent or musicians.

We are Fundraising and our new Crowdfunding Campaign aims to address these issues, complete the studios and officially launch this amazing Creative Space.

Thank you to all those that are supporting us and a special thanks to everyone that is starting to use the space and the studios that are operational at the moment - we really do appreciate your every penny to help this campaign.

Our Reviews So Far

"Took my daughter to a workshop and she thoroughly enjoyed the session and made new friends. It was a relaxed, friendly environment. She is looking forward to more sessions and learning new skills with Ferson and the team."

"My daughter attended the ’Teen acting for TV and film’ workshop and absolutely loved it. I was really impressed with how well equipped the studio was and I was left with the feeling that some really great stuff will be created in this space."
Kelly D

"The Studios are a fantastic local facility with top equipment and very helpful and friendly staff. Everything you need for filming of any purpose under one roof. No need to search elsewhere, this really is where it all happens."
