A-Storage or Hollywood?
We provide a lot of services, from self-storage through to virtual offices. One thing we never planned on providing was a film studio! I know, how can a Self-Storage Company offer a film studio? Well it’s not exactly Warner Bro’s Studios or Pinewood Studios, but it has now been used for THREE different short films! Students from Bournemouth University used a vacant workshop unit of ours and turned it in to a film set using their artistic skills.
Last year we had a few different groups of Bournemouth University Students come to us for help. We ran through the legalities and granted permission for each of them to film at our location. We’ve had Sci-Fi films, Horror and Drama all shot on location at our Bournemouth Facility.
Bournemouth University Students and A-Storage working together
We know that Students aren’t made of money, and a couple of these films were self-funded! We obviously didn’t feel right charging them full price for the units, so instead, we charged them nothing!
All we asked for in return was for them to take a few pictures and videos for us! A few of the photos we use for our marketing and website were taken by some Students, and they look great!
One of the production crews gave us this amazing plaque to say thank you.
We had a lot of fun with the Students while they were filming here. Seeing them create their films all the way through from the set designs to the realistic, freaky make-up!
Some of the Students also took a Storage Unit with us! Every year we offer a Student Package to local Bournemouth University, Arts University and Language School Students, to help with their move over the summer and winter breaks.
