The Client

Emmy award winners Silverback films are based out of central Bristol and specialise in the production of high quality wildlife films for both television and cinema. The team have produced four feature films for Disneynature and have three more features in the pipeline and were also behind the highly successful 2015 BBC series ‘The Hunt’ narrated by Sir David Attenborough. They are also currently and have previously completed series for The Discovery Channel, the BBC and Netflix. They currently have a staff base of around 50-60 however need to make provisions for expansion. Also consideration must be made in regards to staff members often going out to film around the world sometimes for months at a time.

The Job

We completely refurbished and fit out a previously converted 1800’s bonded warehouse of approximately 7,500 sq. ft., into a four floor office space plus basement in central Bristol. Due to the nature of the work Silverback films do, they required editing suites, a viewing room to house a large screen, areas to conduct technical support, extensive specialised storage for their equipment and films as well as the conventional office space, meeting rooms, tea points and large kitchen/dining area. The final project cost was circa £300k.
