First Option Studio is a large and versatile photography & film shoot location in Perseverance Works.
The split level studio is 1000 sq ft and adjoins a 500 sq ft bespoke kitchen built by one of the last cabinet makers of old Shoreditch. There is a second smaller prep kitchen of 230 sq ft on the ground floor, which is obviously invaluable when filming in the main kitchen.
The balcony is an amazing feature when shooting in the large kitchen, meaning that lighting cranes aren’t so essential. Both the studio and the main kitchen have high pitched roofs and exposed Scots pine trusses. Original Crittal windows line the Victorian brick walls to provide an abundance of natural light from the north and the south. Blackout blinds cover all windows and both skylights in the studio.
