Monthly Networking Event at Media Qube, October 2011

This eye-opening visit was a chance for our members to discover a large, impressively furbished studio including:

  • A drive-in greenscreen studio large enough to drive a Luton van all the way into
  • An internet radio station
  • A hot-desking computer room
  • Music studio
  • Extensive training facilities and experience, especially with aspirational local young people and performing artists
  • Leisurely, lofty open spaces, complete with a pool table and a roof terrace in development

It was remarkable to find that an extensive, self-funded facility like this has come so far in the heart of Birmingham without a big publicity drive – the invite to ourselves was the beginning of the Qube’s initiatives, which will be well worth following in future, at http://www.media-kube.com/.

The Producers’ Forum is always looking for interesting facilities to host our events, for mutual benefit - if you think that your facility could be of interest, email info@producersforum.org.uk. Note that for the time being, our events and membership are centred upon Birmingham and the surrounding region – but we’re certainly keen to expand soon!
