Twickenham Studios is on course to be the most “up-to-date, highly equipped studio in the country”, according to the chief operating officer Maria Walker.

Ms Walker, who headed the Save Twickenham Film Studios campaign, made the announcement at a launch party for the studios at the Rembrandt Hotel in London on October 17.

New owner Sunny Vohra is looking to install about £1m of equipment by spring, but the studio has already bought 3D projectors and Dolby Atmos surround sound for one of its theatres.

There are also plans to build three television mixing rooms and one grading suite, as well as refurbish the changing, hair and make-up rooms.

There will also be an expansion in staff, with two new engineers, one sound team member, the first sales manager and the first public relations representative added.

Ms Walker said: “I have previously worked with our new team members and know them to be very talented in their respective areas and am looking forward to having them on board.”
