Crown Works Studios

4D Studio are working with Fulwell Cain Studios to create a world-class film/high-end TV (HETV) production facility on an 80-acre brownfield site on the south bank of the River Wear in Sunderland. The project will invest around £450m in the development of Crown Works Studios-a 1.7msq ft film industry hub, with 20 premium sound stages suitable for major feature film and HETV productions.

Crown Works Studios will be one of the largest and best equipped filmmaking complexes in Europe: the development will include ample provision for production workshops and office space, a vendor village for supply chain businesses, administrative and social facilities, a multi-storey car park and an extensive backlot. The project has the active support of Sunderland City Council.
