Goldcrest Films fund expansion with Medialease
Medialease has supported Goldcrest Films over several phases of its refurbishments at its Soho-based facility, including the creation of the flagship Dolby Atmos Theatre 1 – the largest audio dubbing suite in London. A few years ago, Goldcrest wanted to grow the company to be the number one facility for feature films in the UK; the company recruited the right people, ready to start the task of challenging the high-end film post-production industry for the top spot. Goldcrest already had a good film mix theatre but, over time, they saw the mid-budget market decline, as work polarised either into low budget films or the bigger-budget studio features. They really needed to build a very large mix environment of their own.
In 2015, Medialease arranged a million pounds for Goldcrest to set-up new finishing suites, with a complete refurbishment of Goldcrest’s audio feature film mixing rooms to follow too, in which Medialease also funded the equipment. We’ve provided all asset financing for all equipment in all rooms over the entirety of Goldcrest’s expansion project, from audio to video post and grading, helping Goldcrest grow its offerings for drama and film projects. The large theatre was launched with great acclaim in the industry; one of the very first bookings was Jason Bourne for Universal, a $100m+ budget feature.
