London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/16/2022 -- Bottle Yard Studios has been the site of many excellent productions in recent years, including The Netflix show The Last Bus and The Outlaws, which was made for The BBC. In fact, over the past decade, the studios have been the location for more than 70 productions. Now the studio facilities are being expanded with three extra stages added via a new TBY2 site, which is located just half a mile away in South Bristol. With the addition of the second site to the Bristol City Council facilities, there will now be the capacity for many more productions to be filmed at the same time. The second site increases the number of stages from eight to 11. As a result, it is likely to create a large number of television jobs, with many new opportunities set to result from productions at the new studio site in the next 10 years.
During the development stage of the new Bottle Yard Studios site, around 135 jobs were created. Over the next 10 years, the council's Senior Film Manager expects another 800+ television jobs to be available as a result of the construction of the second site. The first show that is going into production at the new studio site is a version of 'Rivals,' which is based on the book by Jilly Cooper. The second Bottle Yard Studios site should open the door to a whole spectrum of 'top notch' film and television productions and create many more television jobs in the region, according to industry insiders. The site has been redeveloped and funded through a mix of finance, including £12 million from the West of England Combined Authority. This investment is designed to help promote the fact that the region is firmly open for business again after the pandemic.
With new studios opening up across the UK, there are greater opportunities for those looking for television jobs today. The pandemic has been especially tough on this industry, and the exciting prospects that lie ahead are timely. The Talent Manager supports freelancers and industry institutions looking to capitalise on this surge in opportunities to help bring new productions to life. The business is the first 'free for freelancers' platform, which means that freelancers who use The Talent Manager to find work - like the television jobs at the new Bottle Yard Studios site - never have to pay to do so. It has also become a go-to for many companies in the industry - including all the major indies and broadcasters, from The BBC through to Maverick and ITV. Professionalising the process of recruiting (and applying) for television jobs has been a key motivation for the team at The Talent Manager. A considered recruitment strategy is a major advantage for any employer looking to fill television jobs, and The Talent Manager is able to balance providing a comprehensive service to companies as well as support and access to opportunities for freelancers too.
