New stretch target

Any additional money raised will help get the studio up and running even quicker - helping us to furnish the unit and sound proof it to the highest quality to ensure that our clients are getting the most professional service.

Matchbox productions was formed in late 2019 by Oliver Thomas & Joseph Banks.


Oliver graduated his degree in Media production in the July of 2019 and formed a partnership with Joe who had similarly graduated from his degree in Audio Production, the two then formed a partnership to provide an audio and visual service to business and artists across Warrington.

Over the last 12 months we have worked by completing commercial promotional videos, music videos, photography packages along with graphic design and much more. However, we have had to use multiple locations to carry out these jobs with us not yet we’re having our own studio.


This week, that is about to change as we are signing our first lease as a business to secure ourselves a brand new unit we will use to renovate into a Recording studio/Video studio.

This is really exciting and a big step for the business as it’s shown us that all of our hard work from the past year is starting to pay off.


The music industry is a huge contributor to what make Warrington, Warrington. and we feel as though there is a huge gap in the market for artists and musicians across the town to really have a place, within the town, to write and record music and to help further support them in breaking into the industry. Matchbox productions aims to give artists that place close by to really take the next step in their music careers, with a place to professionally record their music and make video content to further help them on their path.

However, with what is going on in the world right now, the government are refusing to support small upcoming businesses in the entertainment industry and therefore the business support we applied for has been refused, meaning we are not eligible for financial support from the government.

As a result of this we are both working extremely hard and putting in every extra hour we can, along side our full time jobs, towards the business to make this dream a reality.

With this being said we are asking for any support financially that will help us get this business off the ground and to give Warrington bands a fresh, safe, new space to grow their music and help break through into the ever growing music scene.


Obviously, we feel quite uncomfortable asking for financial support, however we really want to get our career off the ground and strive towards making this business a huge success, whilst offering a fantastic service that would be a huge asset for the town.

After a lot of market research, we have found from many people already in the industry that this business has the potential to be a huge success, if we work hard and can hit the ground running.

Any money that we raise will go directly towards getting the business of the ground and refurbishing the unit into a fully functional recording studio. Every penny will help furnish, buy any necessary equipment and sound proof our unit so that is of the highest standard for our clients. We will also use any donations to make sure our space is a safe and attractive space for upcoming artists to work.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any support you can offer us would be hugely appreciated.
