UK indie prodco October Films has launched a standalone production services company, October Studios, aimed at U.S. producers.
The facility and studio space, based in the UK, will be available for drama reconstruction content for factual-based dramas. Its offerings also feature a wide supply of American props, vehicles and on-screen talent, and according to October, boast the only full-scale standing Oval Office film set outside of North America (pictured).
October Studios will be run by Steve Murphy and Josh Wilkins, and its service offerings will include budgeting, scheduling and production input, supporting all levels of reconstruction and scripted content, including fast turnaround projects.
Wilkins was recently the U.S. head of operations for October Films, while Murphy’s recent executive producing credits include The Killer Beside Me for Investigation Discovery.
The space has already been used by international producers such as Anomaly Entertainment, Arrow Media, Raw TV, Talos Films and Charles Ferguson’s Representational Pictures.
