COBRA OF THE NORTH IS A NEW FILM PRODUCTION
FACILITY LOCATED IN WEST YORKSHIRE.
Founded by filmmakers David Ainley and Nick Padley, the COTN base has been designed from the ground up to cater to full service film and photography production. Resting at the epicentre of the COTN base is a 640-square foot studio equipped for both photography and live action filming. More than just a room, the studio is fully soundproofed and acoustically treated to allow for the highest quality audio & video capture with zero disruption. In addition to the studio we have a large dressing room with changing facilities and make up area, 2x edit suites with space for client attendance, a sizeable vocal booth for the recording of vocal and foley work and a large creative space for pre-production planning and screening of projects.
A MULTIFUNCTIONAL STUDIO
640-square foot to capture your next project. Whether you need to capture some stills or want to get a full crew in for film shoot our studio has been designed to cater for it all. We have options for overhead rigging, curtain dividers and both white and green screen infinity coves.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO STOP OUTSIDE AUDIO INTERFERENCE
Being from a filmmaking background it was of utmost importance to us that the space would not only be treated for optimum audio capture but also that shoots taking place inside the space wouldn’t face interference from audio issues outside of our control. Designed with mathematical precision and created using specialist materials, the COTN studio has been built with triple boarding for maximum noise cancellation.
WATCH EVERYTHING UNFOLD FROM OUR GREEN ROOM
This is a fantastic space for producers who need to multitask. You can grab a coffee and keep an eye on production via live feed from the switcher room and jump onto our guest Wi-Fi to check emails & browse the Internet.
SOUND RECORDING BOOTH
Our sound recording booth is acoustically treated and connected to our switcher room which allows us to facilitate a range of audio recording requirements. A TV monitor for playback extends our capabilities beyond simply recording voiceover and allows participants to watch back edits from the switcher room. This option enables precise ADR capture and the sizeable floor space allows foley work to enhance your films production value.
LIVE EDIT VIDEO UP TO 4K
For clients wishing to live edit video we have a dedicated switcher room attached to the studio. This contains a full edit suite with rack mounted switcher and up to 4k recording. You can plug and play up to 8 cameras in 4k via SDI or HDMI and record your live mix to SSD and/ or live stream to any of your social networks. This is fantastic for clients wanting to move into live capture but also a great way to save on post-production time for projects requiring a tight turn-around.
DEDICATED SPACE FOR WARDROBE AND MAKEUP
There is nothing worse than lots of people undertaking different tasks in one space. We have a great size room dedicated to preparing your talent for a shoot. 2x changing cubicles, full length mirror and make up table mean the crew can get on with rigging and you bring on the talent once you’re ready to shoot.
